We stopped by on our road trip north - and we're glad we did. Lovely, peaceful dining room, very helpful staff, and a delicious lunch. What more could we want?

Food was good...but for the price, the serving sizes were quite small...in addition they will ask you if you want steamed rice with your meal...please be aware that they charge $3 a bowl for rice. It also took us several minutes to get the attention of a server when we needed something.

We went here based on the reviews of others that we had found on tripadvisor. I must say that when we pulled into the parking lot, we were having serious second thoughts, it's just not the type of place we'd normally dine at. I can't tell you how glad we were that we ignored our "outside" impression and we went... More

This is one of the best Thai food I have eaten... The menu is amazing... Food is authentic with excellent flavor. The staff are very nice. Decor is not modern... But enjoy the 80s look before it is gone!!! Few years from now you won't be able to see it 😀 If you like Thai food - this is a... More

Jhanthong Banbua is quite popular...for good reason. Servers are attentive without being intrusive, and the food is delicious. I usually wind up with the Chicken Satay, but everything I've tried is good. My cohorts really love the Chai Tea, as well. It is busy at lunch time, being close to the county administrative center and the court, but my wait... More

Four of us ate at take out from Jhanthong Banbua recently and we all enjoyed our meals. I ordered the Thai style beef and it was PERFECT for me who likes the more tradition meals. The beef was so tender and seasoned nicely. Most meals are in the range of $10-$15. There are tons of choices...actually making it harder to... More

Excellent juice drinks with friendly and fast service! Lots of Promos as well - add some protein powder to your drink to make it a meal in itself!

True authentic Thai food! There's usually a wait to be seated, they have a very busy " to go " business so call your order in and relax with dinner at home! I love the Dang Panang, Pumpkin Curry, Tom Kha ( spicy Coconut soup) and of course the Thai ice TEA! Don't let the outside throw you off, the... More

Don't let the location fool you! When we drove into parking lot I looked around and asked if my friends were at the correct place. However, the moment we entered, all was transformed. The food was so good with many menu choices, and large portions. Service was friendly and attentive. Atmosphere was authentic. Would go back in a heartbeat. Highly... More

I came here based on Trip Advisor reviews and because I love Thai food. I was not disappointed. This is not your typical Thai fare; this is homemade from scratch cooking. It feels like family recipes passed down from one generation to another. Very good service. It had many vegetarian options. I will go back to try something new when... More
