I ordered take to eat at hotel. It did not exist at listed location. I lost $30 having paid ahead by credit card.

Went here for my birthday, in March 2016. Food was very good (I had Pad Thai). Also tried Thai beer for the first tame, and it was also very good. Happily recommend this place.

I live less than a 1/2 mile from this place and have eaten here many times over a ten year period and it is consistently good.

Been to Bahn Thai on at least 5 occasions. Food is delicious, generous, and well balanced. Highly recommend the Masaman curry, made 3 meals from one order of take out. Service is mediocre, but go for the food!

This is my favorite restuarant...not just in Madison but anywhere. I don't live in Madison but did in college and anytime my hubby and I are within even an hour of Madison we have to make a pit stop here. The best is the pad thai with tofu, kang pet with green curry and brown sticky rice with mango for... More

Nice little strip mall restaurant in a cool older neighborhood near Orton Park. I had their pad thai for my main course and brown sticky rice with custard for dessert. The pad thai was average, but the dessert was great! I highly recommend it. It tasted very similar to the sticky rice and custard dessert I enjoyed so much at... More
