For Maui, the prices here were good. We sampled a few of our traditional Thai favorites, including pad thai and yellow curry. They were okay, but not outstanding. Price is the plus here.

There's not much to say about the ambiance; stereotypical orange walls with cheesy photos of Thai dishes. - probably best for take out BUT, the server (and maybe owner) was so accommodating and charming that the eight of us hardly noticed the cafeteria setting. The food was freshly made and delicious. Prices were fair. Go for it, if you like... More

Thai food is a staple in my monthly craving cycle, and even after a year of moving to the island, I still have yet to find a go-to Thai spot. Baan Thai is the closest Thai restaurant to my apartment, and I've been wanting to try it for awhile now. When it comes to the option of take-out, I'm all... More

I visited on a Saturday to a closed sign. The food here is hit or miss, in all a solid two stars. Don't expect much and you won't be disappointed.

The location is convenient and subtle, to enjoy a quality meal. The location allows to enjoy others and share dishes. The staff is attentive and provided services. The price is nice.

I definitely recommend this restaurant if you are looking for authentic Thai flavor dishes. The restaurant is a small family run business. You are not going to be blown away by the decor but more with the authentic charm of the owner. We enjoyed the food and hospitality you see in a family run business.

We were so pleased to find this place on the West Shore. We have stayed in Kanapali and have always driven to Lahaina for our dinners out. Baan Thai is situated in the Napili shopping center and could easily be overlooked as it is very small. The food was delicious offering a nice variety of dishes ranging from spicy to... More

Thai food is consistently good for a strip mall location. They are also very fast, so place an order, go shopping at the supermarket next door and by the time you are done shopping, dinner is ready and waiting.

Went here twice during our Maui stay as first visit was so memorable. Enjoyed the delicious food. So happy to find a Thai in Maui serving brown rice as an option. Not sure if this is standard in the USA but it is very hard to find in New Zealand despite huge number of Thai restaurants. The staff were pleasant,... More

If you're trying to save some money but still not have to cook on vacation then this is your place! I love Thai food and this was a little different than some of the restaurants back home, but it was very yummy! Give it a try!
