Always used to go here when off to see a gig at Brixton Academy. Went last night - and unfortunately it has gone really downhill. First time I have ever posted a two-star review on trip advisor . Food badly done, service slow, and not even cheap. My wife loathed her food

Hi all! Just a little warning....Myself, & fellow vegans (my mum & sister) all ate a dish which we later found out contained fish & shrimp, even though we explained at length to the waiter (who was also the manager) that we eat no animal products. They were very unapologetic when we complained & even tried to blame us for... More

Fancied Thai and a film at the Ritzy in Brixton so went on-line and discovered Baan Thai. A little suspicious at first as very quiet. Service friendly and polite, menu comprehensive but not OTT in terms of length, food very tasty. Would come back

My girlfriend and I went here as it's near to my flat. We ordered and they brought the wrong thing out, we told them and reordered with two of them listening. My girlfriend asked for no meat, just veg and they brought out chicken. We had been in there for ages and decided not to tell them as the waiter... More

Came here with my friends for lunch. Ordered the drunken noodles. It was really good, though spicy. My friends got the green curry and they really loved it too, even though it was spicy. Would love to come again and would definitely recommend this place

Booked online through a website for 8 people for dinner. 6 of us attended as 2 had to drop out for an emergency. When we were seated the manager had a go at me saying I had cost him £2.50 for the two people who didn't turn up (even though he went on to use the extra chairs for another... More

With the number of options on offer in Brixton you come to expect great quality food and service and sadly Baan Thai doesn't really deliver on either point. When ordering take away it's often taken well over the estimated time and has never really been up to scratch with no excuses. Distinctly average and at times verging on poor.

I will be contacting PayPal to see why this happened and why I have not been refunded. Thiefs and horrible staff when... More

Fortunately we did not read the previous reviews before going to this restaurant because our experience was great and food was awesome. The staff was absolutely nice and friendly, the tom yum soups were great and was really close from the original receipe we ate in Thaïland, just like the pad thai! There was a problem of humidity (bad smell)... More
