Love the ambience and the food. Yes it’s a bit expensive (it’s 5 star so the rates will be high, but the quality is great and the quantity is fantastic. Three of us couldn’t finish one stater, one main and one side dish. It’s great...to special occasions and definitely worth the indulgence.More

I went back to Oberoi Grand after a gap of 30 years and found the hotel some how stuck in time, at least that was the impression we got after dinning at Baan Thai. Overall ambiance was nice but noisy kids from another table who...were running around the restaurant spoiled the atmosphere. Menu was confusing to say the least. Grilled chicken under main course arrived at our table looking like stir-fried side dish. Dessert choices in a so called specialized Thai restaurant included cream brulee and cheesecake. In fact some of us ordered the "Kaffir lime brulee" hoping to taste something different but received a regular cream brulee with kaffir lime infused crushed ice in a separate small glass. The so called signature dessert was not even mentioned in the menu. And then there was the service or the lack of it. The servers appeared to be not very well trained and had limited knowledge about the food. For example they described the ice cream cake as ice cream between two slices of bread. Our server disappeared during the course of our meal and we found it difficult to get our table cleared or order dessert. The servers even lacked minimum skills in placing the foods on the table. Not to forget they did not replace our knives and forks after we finished our starters. But the worst experience was when we settled the bill. The server charged us in foreign currency without asking and at a very imaginative rate. Unfortunately I only noticed this after leaving the hotel and did not feel like going back to lodge a complaint. At the end I have to mention that food taste were good but I don't think it will inspire me enough to go back in next 30 years.More

Delectable, mouth watering Thai delicacy. The strong taste of coconut on my first bite of Thai red curry is unforgettable. Must try if you are in Kolkata!! PS: I ordered Prawns in Thai red curry sauce and rice to go along with it

We went there for dinner last night to celebrate my husband's birthday. The decor is beautiful, authentic and with lovely fresh floral centrepiece. We were welcomed at seated at our table and whilst waiting for our order, we were provided with crispy, spicy crackers to...go with our drinks. We had ordered Tom Yam Gung - the smell and flavour took me straight back to numerous visits to Thailand. We also ordered Som Tam, Thai Fish cakes Pad Thai, and a spicy grilled fish. The food was outstanding- only problem, the portions were generous. The service was attentive, without being in your face. Well done.More

I mentioned I wasn’t feeling well, and they brought me a lovely, clear soup as part of my lunch, completely unexpectedly. The rest of lunch was delicious with thoughtful, attentive service.

They dont have buffet but has arguably the best Thai in town. Yup its expensive but you would expect that in The Oberoi. However, once in a while, a little pampering of the senses is a good idea. Go for a meal there with... More
