I have been here several times and it is a reasonable place to grab thai food. That said the most crave-worthy is the basil duck. The duck is consistently crispy and not fatty. The sauce is spicy, but not overpowering, and the basil, soy, and chill together give it a great, familiar Thai profile. It is one of my favorite... More

Had dinner last night. We were early and the only ones. Ordered chicken pad Thai - not the best I've ever had - I had to ask for hot peppers to add some flavor - the dish was missing something. We also had the pepper black chicken and this is what gets the four star rating - it is fabulous!!!... More

It was a Monday night and we were the only ones that ever came in. The service therefore was good. The food was average by Thai standards. We enjoy Thai food and were hoping for better. The Pad Thai was off a bit. At least they carry Singha beer. They need to work on the ambiance as it was missing.... More

We have been coming to Baltomore every Memorial Day weekend for the past 7 years for a music fest. The person at the front desk of our hotel suggested this restaurant on our first visit and we have gone back every year since. We travel with a large group and everyone has ordered a variety of dishes. Everything has always... More

This restaurant offers a very wide ranging menu - with sushi dishes, Chinese, and Thai cuisine. I wish there were more Thai choices on the menu, but what there is is quite good. It might be one small step below five-star rating, but it is certainly well prepared. My green chicken curry was nicely flavored; it was a bit less... More

Stopped in as a group of 6 on a Sunday afternoon around 1pm. We were thrilled that they agreed to open early ( :) ) - I think the published time for them on Sunday is 4pm. We enjoyed a great lunch!

They got a new owner a few years back and the food and service have steadily gone down hill. The spring rolls are now half the size and taste but still same price. Everything tastes different somehow and not as good. Soup was bad tonight couldn't even eat it. Place is usually empty but rest assured that doesn't mean you'll... More

It was quiet, but it was Tuesday night. The sushi was good, specially for a Thai place. Seaweed salad too. Not a fan of the calamari. Try the Thai tea. Fast service. Pad Pik King was average. Spiced a little less spicy than most places so if you want spicy, get food with many chilies next to it.

As always, another excellent dinner :D This has been one of my top 10 restaurants for years and I used to drive 1 & 1/2 hrs to come here. Thankfully I lived a few blocks away now. We ordered a few of our usual things tonight. Spring rolls OMG I love them - we got 2 orders lol. Beef Pad... More

I specialize in Thai restaurant reviews. I saw the reviews below and and looked forward to eating here. Sadly, I cannot recommend Banthai for Thai food. (Maybe the sushi is good?). The first issue was the small complimentary side sald, which was 100% white iceberg! not a speck of green to be found. The dressing was OK. The Pad Thai... More
