We stayed in Redmond, WA on our 32nd Anniversary. Having no plans for the night we asked the front desk staff in our hotel (Silver Cloud Inn) for a dinner recommendation. Of the many places we could walk to from the hotel we chose the Bai Tong based on the hotel's recommendation. Wish we had made a reservation as there was a 30 minute wait for a table, but it was Friday night. We were famished so we considered going elsewhere, but the smells wafting from the dining room kept us seated. We were whisked to a private booth and brought menus and water almost immediately. Our hostess apologized for the wait, and we ordered an appetizer to get things going The steak appetizer was mouthwatering, with a dipping sauce that we loved. Dinner arrived shortly and we were impressed with the large portions, since the prices were reasonable. We shared a yellow curried pork and rice dish accompanied by a crispy spicy chicken dish that had toasted or roasted crispy basil leaves on top. Fabulous food, amazing service, and great prices. We had leftovers the next day and if possible, they were even better! We now know where to stay when we visit family here, and we know where to eat too.

We visited this place for dinner. Ambience was great. Place was crowded for Friday evening but still service was timely. They had lots of vegan options and were flexible to modify some of the existing dishes to meet our needs. Infant chair was provided on request. Food was of great quality and they had good service.

I went to this place in December 2013.

The place itself is very well decorated and is one of the nicer thai restaurants for atmosphere. The service is also very good and the staff seem well trained and attentive.

I travelled with a party of four and found all four meals to be too sweet. Even the curries were sweet. I think they could hold back on the candy

We visited the Redmond bai tong for dinner. For some reason they decided to seat 4 of us in the large group room. So there were 20 people at the table next to us and rest of the room was empty. After we were seated no one showed up for 10 mins. My 6 year old is too big for the infant chair so after standing around for 10 mins, I had to wave down a waitress who was busy serving the 20 people next table to get us a regular chair. Then during the course of the dinner there were at least 3 different people who seemed to be serving us making it really confusing to keep things straight. I am still not sure who was really waiting on our table. Glad that the food was good, but felt that the staff were not trained at all, we could not enjoy any of the decor or ambience since we were stuck in the corner of a big room with no special decor, staff were unfriendly. Seattle definitely has other better Thai places to eat at.

Had my birthday dinner with family here. We ordered our favorites - Penang curry, spare ribs, pineapple fried rice, chicken wrap, and brocoli crispy pork. The food is great. At the end of the dinner, the restaurant knew we were celebrating a birthday and brought out a lovely ice cream desert on the house. They are opening an outlet in Issaquah Highlands and closer to us. We cannot wait.
