This is upscaled Thai -- white tablecloths and lotsa big white plates and a long wine list. But it's more than that: whoever is cooking is paying close attention to freshness and flavor. The results are a distinct step up from the average Thai joint. Service is attentive and helpful.

There are good vegetarian options, but not many: the menu's emphasis is seafood and meat. They have a very light hand with the chilies: to my taste, even the top end of the chili range is pretty mild. But that also means they're not relying on chilies for flavor. Vegetables are on the crisp side, sometimes verging on undercooked ... but they will adjust if you ask.

This has become our go to place for great Thai food where we know it will be consistently delicious every time. Our favorites are the Larb, Warm Steak Salad, Corriander Beef, Bai Pai Noodles, Tom Ka soup - the list goes on. The food here is always made with high quality, fresh ingredients, never too salty or greasy, and always prepared properly. The atmosphere makes this restaurant also stand out, decorated with large stone sculptures and paintings that seductively transform you to another country. Service is always friendly and professional. They have a great bar (try the Rosemary Lemonade (with vodka) or the Lychee Martini. They also do 'to go' orders as well.

We go often for the lunch specials. They are a good deal for $8.95 as I can get phad thai, green curry, rice, and a salad. We also go for dinner occasionally. Always fresh and delicious. Highly recommended.

Given its location it is probably not worth a trip from the downtown core, but the atmosphere is really nice, the service is good, and the food is solid. Definitely like the upscale vibe - wine lockers, nice paintings, white tablecloths.

Bai Pai is one of those places that you'll keep going back to. It's a little neighborhood restaurant with great meals at reasonable prices and nicely prices glasses of wine as a bonus. This Thai restaurant doesn't offer sticky sauces that all taste the same but an interesting menu of fragrant, spicy dishes that are carefully prepared and presented (try the Larb, Eggplant Salad or Tea-smoked Salmon, for example.) There are white cloths on the tables, a little piano bar and friendly hosts and staff which creates a lovely ambiance for lunch or dinner. Or even a party, as they have a private room that can be reserved for special occasions.
