Friendly owners and excellent food! We ordered catering too and everything was wonderful. The owner was very accommodating and flexible with our order.

I love everything about this place those negative reviewers don't know what they're talking about. The owner is super friendly and he is typically your waiter. He's full of good suggestions and jokes. Your food comes out pretty quickly as well. I eat a lot of Asian food and I can tell you this is some top shelf cuisine (get... More

This is a small, family run restaurant in a strip mall, very nicely decorated inside. Service is quick and very friendly. Excellent Thai food, and in our opinion the very best Asian food within a 35 mile radius (at least). The proprietor, Jimmy, meets and greets. We've eaten here many times, a favorite.

We have frequented this little gem of a Thai restaurant! It's little but bursting with Jimmie's personality, colorful presentation and wonderful flavor! He and his wife worked very hard to make our experience a pleasure. They are delightful and the food is great! Notre Dame, IN

The server was so friendly. The food wash very fresh-tasting and delicious and I felt it was healthy too. Great little place for lunch or dinner. I like that they have many options for vegetarians.

This place was well below our standards. Food and service were not good. Multiple mistakes and the food was sooo salty. I'm not sure how this place is ranked so high in food quality... Maybe we got them on an off night, but we won't be back. I was hoping for so much more!

If you love thai, you NEED to go here! When we first arrived, the one person attending the customers let us know that it might be a little while before he was able to get to us. DON'T let this scare you off! It took 5-10 minutes before he was able to get us our waters and take our orders,... More

My husband and I stopped here for lunch, because we saw that they offer quite a variety of vegan options. We were so impressed with both the extremely service-oriented owner and the DELICIOUS Thai food. The restaurant is quite small, but clean, pleasant, and charmingly ornamented in Thai decorations. We were waited on promptly, and our food was served surprisingly... More

The Wife and I had been trying to stop in for a couple weeks, and finally got the opportunity to grab lunch. I called to make sure they were open, and the owner explained that he would be, but had to close sharply at 1:30 in order to run to Chicago for supplies, and be back open for the evening... More

After two poor dinners in the past, we tried eating at Ban Thai again this evening. Like our last attempt to eat at this restaurant, we were informed that there would be a 45 minute wait for food, even though they had open tables. It's not worth trying Ban Thai again if they are not willing to be properly staffed.

Thank T J
