I ate at Baan Thai based upon the trip advisor reviews I had the Cashew Chicken and enjoyed it . I was very tasty but a bit plain. I would get a small order of rice to go with it next time This is a cheap eats diner, not a high end restaurant. The server was the owner, offered great... More

A friend and I love Thai and wanted to try a different restaurant. I saw the good reviews of this spot so we decided this was the place to try. We arrived around 5pm, the first to arrive and were seated at a table. The lady who sat us was also the server and I'm guessing the owner. She was... More

Almost missed seeing this place, but glad we didn't. Huge selection of dishes and the ones we had were tasty. Laid back atmosphere and friendly staff.

I haven't eaten at Bann Thai in many years. The new location is bright and clean, and the service was very good. The food was only mediocre. The "garden rolls" appetizers were okay, but a bit light on fresh herbs. The yellow curry was tasty, but the chicken in it was over tenderized. The pad thai was pretty good, but... More

We almost missed this gem. When we walked by the first time we didn't see it at all. Just a doorway between two other businesses. I am sure glad we did. The food was excellent. The best lemongrass chicken I have ever eaten. If you are tired of pub food in Downtown Halifax this is a great change. Everything seemed... More

Walked in, 12 of us, on a Saturday evening and got a table with no problems. We chose buffet option although a la carte was also available. Clean and very good price. Small buffet selection but more than enough choice to keep everyone happy. Would return.

One rainy afternoon earlier this week we luckily wandered in to Baan Thai for lunch. It is situated in a restaurant dense area of Halifax, and we hadn't done any of our usual online review-searching. So walking in to this calm, immaculate, and lovely restaurant was a true find. I ordered from the very reasonably priced lunch menu, which came... More
