We are fortunate enough to live in Toronto which has some of the most ethnic diversity of any major city in the world. We can get excellent, authentic cuisine from pretty much any region of the globe. So we can be picky when it comes to trying ethnic restaurants in other locals. This Thai restaurant is nothing shy of excellent.... More

We went to Baan Thai for early bird on Sunday night. The food was amazing as ever with a great choice. It was the most reasonable priced meal of the weekend with very high standards of food. Love it. We will be back!!!

Spent 4 days in Dublin recently in a hotel adjacent to this restaurant. Myself & my colleagues ate there twice over the 4 days. Nice service, good menu, fresh food - it was delicious and I'd have no hesitation reccomending this restaurant to anyone stayin in or visiting Ballsbridge

Missed out going here last time we were in Dublin as they were fully booked. Took no chances this time and booked ahead. Place was packed, always a good sign. Had mixed platter to share for starters, taste was amazing and a lovely selection of 5 sauces and dips to accompany, red curry and a chilli and ginger stir fry... More

The restaurant is small but very welcoming. The smells from the kitchen really make you feel hungry and the menu doesn't disappoint. It has everything! We were a table of 4 so each had something different for each course. We couldn't pick the best as they were all good. Highlight was a sizzling plate of giant prawns flambed in brandy.... More

Came here last Sunday with my girlfriend after reading it up on TripAdvisor and was very impressed. Food was excellent and very good value with great portion sizes something the Dublin restaurants lack a lot of the time. Some say it's a bit dated inside but I would disagree. I found it to have quite a cosy atmosphere looking out... More

Had a really impressive meal here last Friday. It was impromptu so didn't have a reservation but they were able to accommodate our table of 2 even with the Leinster match on, albeit it was after kick off. Great choice on the menu and speedy, friendly service. The quality and flavour of the food was superb! It was my first... More

Revisited this Restaurant again as was in the area. It was Christmas week but remarkably quiet in the general Ballsbridge area. The restaurant was half full when we arrived at 7pm. Food as usual was superb. Prawns and duck flambe are particular favourites and not to be missed. Always get a warm welcome and excellent service. If you like Thai... More

We were here four families in total 17 of us. Foods were delicious. Everyone from our group including kids love the foods. Only problem is place is bit tiny. Thanks to chef and management for such a lovely food.

Thank Kazi R
