Every time we go to Bahn Thai for a group BYO, we have a great time. The staff are nice, the food fantastic and the corkage reasonable. Always a great prelude to a night out.

Nice restaurant, best choice on the road. Fast service and tasty food. Reasonable prices: Two main dishes with chicken and seafood, cider and a liter water for 50 $.

The first time I had Bahn Thai I ordered about 7 dishes and took them to a girls house for a date. Must've been damn good cause she's still with me somehow. 5/5 no joke, seriously amazing food. A true regular for me.

At Bahn Thai they serve the best Thai food in Christchurch. The portions, whether for takeaway or dine in are very generous and the food is divine. The staff are very friendly and always pleased to see you.

The Bahn Thai was a regular for us (almost every 2nd week) when we lived nearby in River Road. We had our favourites and the meals never disappointed. We go back whenever we can. We miss it and the the wonderful people there but we will be back. :)

Just wanted a quick soup on a cold ChCh winters day. Seated and order taken and delivered to me quickly. Nicely flavoured Tom Yum Gai. Enough spice heat to enjoy without being overbearing.
