Food is ok, specially indian that we actually find very very good. Staff are nice and friendly(both lao and indian!) but if you decide to eat there, keep distance from the owner. When we was there for a dinner the guy looks drunk, always beside our table, cheering our glass with his big beer bottle....really annoying. I'm almost sure that... More

We've been ordering from this place for more than a year. After multiple failure from ordering by phone I have always preferred to go there to show precisely the waiter/waitress the food to order on the menu. This was still not enough and again problem with the order, missing dish and wrong option on the same night. If ordering by... More

Great Tex Mex. If you need a break from Asian fare, Ban Gai is perfect. Small and clean, the food is tasty and fresh. Margaritas are not too bad either.

Ban Gai is a great place to have in the neighborhood. Some favorites include the burritos and enchiladas, the stir fries are decent too. The downsides are lack of consistency and it keeps getting more expensive without a noticeable increase in quality or quantity. The enchiladas for example are about 10 USD but for me isn't enough food for a... More

This once great Mexican took a nose dive. It's under new ownership and seems to be getting better, though it has a way to go to get back to how it was. The service was OK and the food was fine, if not great.
