“unexpected treat!”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Open until 10 p.m. during the week and right next door to our hotel; I was surprised at how yummy this restaurant was! We had green curry with tofu and some kind of tamarind shrimp and both were very good, as were the crab rangoon which were tastier than most. We got ours to go and it was hot and delicious!

“Enjoyed our lunch!”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

Had lunch here with my family as we were taking a road trip in Kansas. The food and service were good. Prices are a little high for the portion size and there are no weekday lunch specials. We chose this restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews. Sounds like this may be the best Thai restaurant in Manhattan.

“Food was okay at best”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

We've eaten a a lot of thai places. This place was ok at best, and the service was not good at all. The server barely spoke 3 words to us other than asking what we wanted to eat. We may go back if we really want thai food.

“Good Thai food”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

While spending a weekend in Manhattan, we had a dinner at Baan Thai. It was a good dinner and I was pleased with the selections. They have Thai standards like Pad Thai, Pad See Eew, various curries, and other stir fry dishes. My husband and I are vegetarian and this place had many choices and they were receptive to making dishes without fish sauce. They have many dishes that are "choice of meat" where one of the choices is tofu.

I had an eggplant based dish on the specials list called "Black Magic." My husband had a wide noodle dish with tofu. Both were tasty with good size servings. Neither of us completed the portions - maybe ate 75% to 80%.

Ambiance was OK - this is a corner shop in a strip mall. It was clean and neat, and rather plain. Service was not remarkable but attentive enough and efficient. The place was moderately busy - we had no wait, and there were a few open tables.

“Great food...terrible service”
Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

We were walked by several times and not a word spoken. They were not packed so that seemed rude. The server was at our table 3 times...The whole time. But the food was very good. So either we went on an off server day or they just know that the food is good enough you will come back.
