Was recommended to try this as the best Thai restaurant in Aberdeen and wasn't disappointed. Skewers of squid, chicken & beef to start - served with satay and chilli sauces. Beef jungle curry with coconut rice was also good. Wonderful food just a little let down by hit-and- miss service!

I love the chicken satays with peanut sauce. The carvings from a carrot was were exquisite. The service was polite and efficient. We will definitely be coming back.

Really enjoyed my meal here. Started with some prawns wrapped in pastry which had a nice sauce with it. Followed by green chicken curry and coconut rice. Plenty of flavour in all the dishes, really friendly service, a nice relaxed atmosphere and a couple of glasses of tiger beer to wash it all down. Definitely recommended.

Lovely starter, poor main (bland). Two eating (different menu choices) and both came to same conclusion. Regular Thai eaters.

Five of us went back to Bhan Thai on Saturday, had the usual banquets.
Can't fault the food, it really was exceptional, as ever.
The only thing we noticed is that the prices have risen to a level that doesn't really sit comfortably with the ambience/decor of the restaurant.
£45 a head, which is what we paid, is the sort of money we expect to pay for great food and a nice restaurant.
I'm not being unfair to Bhan Thai when I say the decor isn't modern or particularly comfortable, having a bit of a ramshackle/haphazard feel to it.
If I can put it another way, it's not the sort of restaurant you feel the need to smarten up to go to!
Some may like this and I used to as well, when the prices were more reasonable.
But the fact is the prices are now at the level where they need to spend money on the place itself to justify them, as the food alone (whilst superb) isn't enough any more.
