“Authentic Thai Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

I've been coming here for over 6 years and I've always had great meals here. Compared to other Thai restaurants in Waltham, this is probably the most authentic, from their noodle dishes (i.e., Pad Thai and Pad See Ew), Siamese Eggplant, to any of their curry dishes. Their prices are within the range of other ethnic restaurants in the area but I would choose this place over the others nearby. They are also very kid friendly.

“Just average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2014

Baan Thai is conveniently located on Main Street, more or less across from City Hall. It offers decent Thai food as well as sushi in a pleasant setting, with good service. The menu is extensive, portions are good-sized, and the prices are reasonable. We came at lunch and had several dishes, all of which were pretty good but bland - even when marked with chili peppers. This is not what I'm expecting or looking for in Thai food. In Waltham, Tree Tops is better Thai, and Tom Can Cook has interesting Asian fusion.

“Great Thai”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

We stopped here without knowing anything about the restaurant - just passing through the area and were in the mood for Thai. It was very good! The lunch specials give you so much food for a reasonable price. Soup was great. Entrees were very good too. Restaurant was almost empty when we were there (a bit on the late side) so it was a very relaxing meal. We'll definitely be back!

“Excellent Thai Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

Baan Thai is one of our favorite Thai restaurants in the area. The prices are reasonable, quality of the food is superb, and the service is excellent. The crispy pad thai is out of this world delicious.
