Baan Thai is a cleanly presented Thai restaurant offering a pleasant calmness to its location on a slightly rowdy bit of Old Christchurch Road in Bournemouth. I went on a Friday night and the place was fairly quiet (about 6 groups in from 8-10pm). Service was fast & reasonably friendly but not outstanding. The music was something along the lines of a Thai version of 80s power ballads (great if you like that sort of thing) and there was a quiet lack of atmosphere. That said the food was suitably spicy and well presented. The lightly battered red snapper was excellent with the rest of the food authentic and above average. It is however a little bit overpriced.
There is a lot to recommend about Baan Thai. Unfortunately there have been a spate of new Thai Restaurants in Bournemouth which may not necessarily be superior for food, but they certainly have a better atmosphere and value.
