Visited here in November 2014 and only getting round to writing my review now! Called in here because we were in Ballsbridge and it was raining so didn't want to get any wetter than necessary so, finding ourselves outside the Baan Thai, decided to give it a go. What a stroke of luck that was! It was a cracking restaurant... More

Baan thai has some tasty thai food and has been around for more than 15 years. Prices are a little expensive but the food is worth it. Nice atmosphere, quiet despite frequent hubub outside

I was in Dublin for a short trip and was staying in the Ballsbridge area. I was looking up some reviews on nearby restaurants and decided to check out the Baan Thai. Initially we had walked past the door as it was wedged between two pubs and not clearly visible. Upon entering the establishment I was met with gorgeously ornate... More

Unlike what I'm used to in New York, this Thai food was made out of real ingredients and more expensive. But eating a real dinner after a long day tour was worth the few extra euros.

This upstairs restaurant has tables close together, but this won't matter when you're enjoying the food. The curries are faithful to what one can find in Bangkok and a generous serving of rice ensures you can enjoy all the sauce when your meat and vegetables are gone.

This was a real find! Great, authentic Thai food at reasonable prices in the heart of D4. Service was friendly and helpful - the green curry was ordered extra hot but we were wisely advised to take it as it comes and add chopped chili powder if required. Good advice! My wife had excellent tiger prawns and my green chicken... More
