We were headed for the nearby Big Fernand, but it was closed tonight. So, we thought to eat at Ban Thai next door—we like Thai food and have eaten it hundreds of times (no exaggeration) The service was very slow (after 45 minutes, we were about to leave when dinner finally arrived); which might explain why all our food was...

Tried this place as it was close to our hotel and we were craving some spicy food. The man who we presumed to be the owner could not do enough for us and was so accommodating and attentive. The menu had a lot of choice which we did appreciate and the specials were also very appealing. We had two starters... More

It is conveniently located near Rue Republica, the shopping street, near the carousel. It is a restaurant run by Thai Chinese, so it is a restaurant serving both Thai food and Chinese food. Seating is basically clean and decent. Service from the waiters are good and attentive. However, food quality is just average. I ordered a pad thai which when... More

After reading all the positive critics about this restaurant we thought that this place would be nice for our first evening. We were wrong! My 3 friends and I were really disappointed by this restaurant. The food wasn't good at all. There was too much choice on the menu and the products they served didn't seem fresh at all. My... More

Actually went back here several times during my nearly two week stay. Food prices were reasonable and cooking fairly authentic, and I'm Asian from the SF Bay Area. You can sit outside if it isn't too hot or raining, but going inside (despite claims of air-conditioning) means you will rely on their fans to keep cool, something that didn't always... More

I love Thai food. I even concoct my own creations at home using the bare bones ingredients I can find. This Thai restaurant is well-located, has a very friendly staff, and serves fresh food that looks so amazing your mouth waters in anticipation. However, my chicken curry had absolutely no flavor! It was well-prepared and well- presented in a timely... More

Whenever we are back home in Lyon, we like to enjoy excellent thai food in 'Mai Thai'. Don't know the reason we could not reach them in last 2 days. So decide to try a new one'Ban Thai' instead. It was a terrible mistake. It was extremely expensive but the taste is so disappointing, my daughter said even my Thai... More
