Diner Reviews
  • "Waited 40 min after arrival before server took drink order. We ordered 4 beer's, none in stock; alternative offered was just as great. 1 server (slow & old) for the whole place which is alright since there is only about 10 tables 4 of which were being used We ordered a group meal which consisted of about 5 items each came about 20-25 minutes apart Separate food coming is quite typical for Thai but 20 minutes that is a LONG Time especially when you have a hungry 5 yr old & 2 men However once the food came the anger you had from the awful service and length between plates, disappeared because the food was THAT GOOD, Ordering a 2nd round of drinks, took another 20 minutes for the server to let us know they were out, again of this beer."

  • "My friend and I spent the whole evening, slowly enjoying dinner and a bottle of wine. No pressure to leave, yet attentive to our every desire. Food was fantastic, my girl friend took home the leftovers, and said it was even better the next day. But the food was plate lickable."

  • "The best Thai food and I have frequented more than a few Thai restaurants! This will be my new go to Thai restaurant even though its across the city from us"

  • "W went to Ban Thai last week for the first time. Our greeting was warm and welcoming! Very delicious meal! The service was quite slow and we were told the kitchen was backed up (which was weird because there were only 3-4 couple in the restaurant - maybe take out orders???). Regardless, some complimentary spring rolls were brought to our table because we had been waiting so long. They were fantastic!"

  • "Don't plan on eating here if you have plans afterwards. Expect a 2.5 hr dinner service with breaks between courses. We keep going back for the amazing flavours of Thailand!"

  • "1. Great food at good prices, nice ambience 2. The restaurant couldn't find our online reservation - do they use you? 3. Waitress was not very good (temp staff - student) 4. Music background played over... and over.. and over...and over - irritating"

  • "What a great little find! We enjoy good quality authentic food at a reasonable price. The salad rolls were very fresh and plenty to share. The red curry was just the right amount of spice. The Pad Thai was delicious! Our first impression was a little turned off by the musty smell to this older location, but once the food arrived, we were no longer distracted by the smell. We will be bringing friends here."

  • "We have eaten at Ban Thai before and the food is great. Unfortunately the last time we were there the service was terrible. We were seated, not provided menus and then completely ignored for 15 minutes. There appeared to be only one server that evening and by the comments overheard from surrounding tables it was clear everyone had waited too long to get their food. We made the decision to walk out and go somewhere else."

  • "The food at Ban Thai is some of the best Thai food in Edmonton, I think. However, the service is exceptionally slow. The entire time we were there, about 3 hours, there was a couple just leaving when we got there, another table of three people, and my co-diner and I at another table. When we tried to order the fresh spring rolls, we were told the cook didn't have time to make them and would the deep-fried spring rolls be okay instead. The entire three hours we were there, we saw only two people come in for take out, so I'm not sure what the cook was being overwhelmed with. The food, however, will keep me going back to Ban Thai, particularly the custard and sticky rice dessert. Just know that you can't be in a hurry when you eat at Ban Thai."

  • "We wanted a quick bite before heading to a concert later on, and this was in the neighborhood. The young man appeared to be a teenager, and the only waiter on staff at the time for the entire restaurant. Our soup course arrived without extra bowls or spoons. Our dinner course arrived without plates. An order of spring rolls was presented, which we said didn't belong to us. The food was very good, but the experience was marred by this inexperienced waiter. He tried hard, but when it came time for us to leave to attend the show on time, we had to take our plate to the front desk to get it packed up and pay our bill. Don't let this put you off - the food is very good. Just be prepared to be patient."

  • "The food was great but we would have ordered differently if we would have understood the concept. The intention is to share the dishes at the table. Next time I would choose a set menu from the back of list that offer multiple courses."

  • "This restaurant desperately needs updating. It's tables are adorned with fake flowers and seat cushions are common. Then food however is to die for. Genuinely authentic thai cuisine."

  • "The quality of food has been very good, the service was great: the waiter was attentive and well -disposed but not obtrusive. The wne list was rather weak, though they had a good white, which fits well with Thai food. An excellent place for those who like Oriental food."
