Baan Thai may be the most "highly decorated" restaurant you will encounter. Thai trinkets and artwork adorn every nook and cranny but once your eyes adjust, it becomes less all-encompassing and not so over the top. You might even find yourself spotting things that would look great in your home or office. Upon closer inspection, you will see that this is possible – everything is discreetly for sale. There are some lovely items, right down to the Thai cutlery on the tables. What fun it is when you can combine your two favourite things – food and shopping! You can leave the restaurant not only with a contented tummy but your choice of Thai adornments as well.

Your plates will be furnished with some special treats also. Tamarind duck is a crowd-pleaser. Lovely, rich duck meat is roasted and then coated in a whisper-thin batter and quickly deep-fried before being smothered in a sweet and sour tamarind sauce. Stir-fried garlic bok choy completes this indulgent dish. Pepper egg prawns make for an appealing mix of silken textures and fiery flavour. The Thai omelette serves as a main with its substantial filling of chicken, tomato and peas wrapped with egg while drunken noodles make a change from the stalwart pad Thai. Steamed whole barramundi is a healthy option with garlic, lemon and fresh chilli and the specials offer extra large barramundi for those fond of fish. For a decadent dish, summon to your table the seafood steamed with coconut and vegetables in luxurious red curry.

Most wonderful place to enjoy Thai food, culture, friendliness and atmosphere. I love the soft music & decorations but above all the food is so fresh and tasty & the wine list has the variety to suit. Prices are very reasonable and the hosts make me feel very welcome each time I go. Number 1 for Thai in my book!
