“Best Thai Restaurant in Halifax!!!!”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

I think the review made on July 22, 2014 was incorrect about MSG and the pad thai is made with ketchup-I think that the customer got their restaurants mixed up...The Thai food here is great and amazing, and the weekend buffets are the best buffets in Halifax...I would strongly recommend this Thai restaurant to everybody to visit and enjoy the wonderful meals offered here. Plus, what an amazing staff to serve you....Job well done Baan Thai...

“"Awesome food and great service"”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

I have been going to the Baan Thai for about a year and have never been disappointed with either the food or the service. The food has always been terrific and that is ordering off the menu or having their buffet. I have sampled various items off the menu and have not found anything yet that has disappointed me. The staff is simply amazing also...they are very friendly and always take time to talk with you. I have had friends that have eaten at both the lunch and dinner buffets and they have said that they have not been disappointed. I believe that Baan Thai is definately a hidden gem in the downtown area for Thai food.

I do highly recommend if you are visiting Halifax and want to have Thai food to definately check out the Baan Thai as you will not be disappointed.

“Lunch buffet: food tasty but stingy”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

The food is tasty but this restaurant has an annoying habit of putting out tiny portions of the buffet items and often all that is left is sauce. The pad thai is made with ketchup which is not an authentic way to make the dish (the Thai use tamarind to sweeten, not ketchup). There also seems to be quite a bit of MSG...my friend and I felt extremely sleepy and parched after eating there.

“My Favorite Thai in the city!”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Great service, great food and conveniant location. Only complaint I have is that when I went last it was freezing inside and made the meal less enjoyable. Been here a number of times and will continue to return. Tom yum soup is my favorite!

“Baan Thai”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

We went on the recommendation from a friend.
Waitress was great.
Food was good.
They have a number of different specials on selected nights - e.g Saturday night buffet.
Seating filled up after 630pm.
A couple of window tables overlooking Blowers as the restaurant is on the 2nd story.
Will return again
