We called in here for dinner..it was very busy so we sat outside which we didn't mind too much..the food we ordered wasn't the best..the fried rice dish was awful I'm sorry to say and the noodle dish wasn't much better...on the other hand the curry we had was very nice only wish we'd ordered one each instead of sharing.....

Went there for lunch buffet. It is not extravagant but covers all basic Thai food at reasonable price. Tom Yam was especially nice. Location is great with ample parking. The decor is basic with authentic Thai touch to it.

Ban Thai came recommended as a great casual place to eat at a good price. Table of three, we weren't disappointed. Thursday night it was busy but with a good turnover of tables. Will be going back before leaving Guam.

We are Thai food lovers, and when vacationing in Guam my kids had a hankering for some of their favorite cuisine. This place wasn't horrible, but I would call it average at best. I'm sorry that I can't put a finger on what wasn't great about it, it was just generally mediocre Thai food. If you're in the area and... More

Loved the soup and lunch buffet on Saturday. Favorite dishes were thai chicken soup, papaya salad, green curry. Nice ambiance with indoor and outdoor seating. Good options for vegetarians too.

I had the green curry, which had good flavor and lots of shrimp. Service was kind and attentive. My friend had a huge portion of fried noodles which she enjoyed. The ambience was ok, kitschy and comfortable. If you have a craving for Thai, this will satisfy, if you're looking for something special and fun, maybe try another place.

Found this charm while looking for something to eat in Tumon. If you like Asian food, that`s it -- a reasonably priced beautiful Thai food buffet restaurant. Thanks that hard working lady near the counter who serves hot soup. Go early to avoid the crown!

Went there with some coworkers, just looking for something different. The setting is really cool with a deffinate tune to the Thai food being served. I ordered the red curry and it did not disappoint! Service was on par. I ordered some homemade Thai sausage to try as I do love some good sausage and it was delicious!

The food was amazing! The service was just OK, while they were a bit slow since it was busy it was the fact that they forgot to bring my meal that was the kicker. I went with a group of friends and they brought all 4 of their meals but forgot mine that I was splitting with a friend. We... More
