We were craving Thai food and my oh my oh my. The best we have had in so long. Even competes with our favorites in Chicago. Green curry, Chicken Pad Thai, Spring Roll...though we did not like the tuna. Stay with the traditional Thai. We learned that Carl, came from California, and has had this Thai restaurant for awhile. Couldn't have been happier and a nice spicy diversion from Mexican spicy.

This is a good basic Thai restaurant. The decor is fitting and the aroma lets you know you are about to have to mighty tasty food! We visit here when we are craving spicy Asian food. There isn't much in Los Cabos to satisfy that. The menu is diverse in offerings and the food comes out spicy- if you order it that way! I think the prices are a bit high for the overall experience. But, you won’t be disappointed. Oh, the walls are spotted with some very colorful beautiful photographs. Lovely!

Baan Thai is a solid choice for Thai cuisine in the Los Cabos area with traditional dishes of Thailand served by a gracious staff. We've enjoyed this casual but elegant restaurant since our first visit in 2001 and recommend it highly for its consistently flavorful menu that's reasonably priced.

Ask U.S. culinary school-trained Owner/Chef Carl to make his special shrimp dish not on the menu--he'll know what you'll mean. This is a unique taste treat in the land of enchiladas and tacos, not well-known to visitors to this unique, quiet town that still retains that Old Mexico flavor and atmosphere a half-hour's drive from raucous, touristy Cabo San Lucas. Located near the town plaza and the cathedral, Baan Thai features both indoor and outdoor dining in an enclosed patio away from city streets. An outstanding find worthy of a visit by anyone loving good food. And don't forget the surprising selection of exquisite Baja-vinted wine Carl has on hand. It puts many California bottles to shame. The restaurant is also just up the block from the El Encanto Inn, another charmer.
