Travelling for work so decided to do a takeaway. Friendly greeting and nice menu for take away - everything that you would expect. Thai food is my favourite so I was just a little disappointed. Not sure what the veges were but seemed like lots of stalks and the ratio of meat was very lacking.

I have been bitten by the Thai bug, so I have decided to try every Thai restaurant I can! This was a very spontaneous decision for my wife and I as we were seeking some dinner in town on a very cold evening. We stumbled across Baan Thai and it looked very inviting. The décor was very authentic yet Europeanised... More

Popped in for a meal after the movies. As usual, same great Thai flavours, good portions and value for money. No desserts to finish with (except ice cream) which was probably a blessing for the diet!

We visited Baan Thai with a group of fifteen last night. It was pre-booked a couple of days out. They only had two wait staff on, which clearly wasn't enough. Both seemed flustered and agitated, and were not friendly at all. One was rushing around with a bit of paper, trying to work out what we'd all ordered and where... More

Have had plenty dinners here, it's one of my "go-to" restaurants when away in Hamilton on business. The staff are always friendly and helpful, and the food has never disappointed. They offer the full traditional range of Thai fare, and do it very well. Often see the full range of people in here- couples, families, business loners like me, so... More

Went there with my partner. The food was pretty authentic and loved the flavors. Try the green curry it is pretty good.

We ordered Chicken Cashew stir fry and King Prawn stir fry dishes. Both came with rice but the tastes were exactly the same. Authentic Thai would have unique tastes to each dish but it appears that the only difference was the chicken and prawns. Everyman to their own.

My wife and I ordered a dinner at Baan Thai on Menulog. Our meal was promptly prepared and ready for pickup at the notified time. The dishes were freshly prepared and hot when collected with a tantalising aroma. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her boneless chicken breasts with stir fry vegetables in oyster sauce with cashew nuts. I similarly enjoyed my... More

Only ever used for a take away, but based on that experience the food here is really very good. Would recommend to others

This was a disappointment for me. The food is average and is terribly overpriced. I ordered the chicken pad Thai, though it wasn't the worst I've had it wasn't the best either.
