This downtown restaurant called Banthai Restaurant has been doing a brisk business since it opened in 1993. One taste of the artfully presented food and you'll understand why. Try the Pad Thai, a delicious blend of noodles, shrimp and peanut sauce. Or, if you're a bit daring, order something served in a spicy curry sauce. If you're in town during the warmer months, be sure to sample the Sweet Rice and Mango, which combines rice with tart-sweet fruit.
Confused wait staff and canned vegetables. I got #85 which was green beans in a spicy sauce. The first dish that was brought to me was mixed vegetables which I sent back. Five minutes what I had order was placed in front of me. Discolored green beans all cut to the same size which a very odd texture. Since I don t eat frozen or canned vegetables, I found this meal to be inedible.
Food is so so, a bit bland for the chicken pad. Service slow. Not a dinner place, I'd rather drive to Glen Burnie to Bangkok Oriental. FYI Sticky rice and mango - excellent - BUT do not be disappointed if they do not have it as they only serve it when the yellow mango is perfect.
I was disappointed by the dishes I ate here. In my opinion, the two best cuisines in the world are French and Thai. Thai food is usually a 'wow' experience for me, but not at the Ban Thai. I had a pad with pork -- it was one of blandest Thai dishes I have ever eaten. I do give 5 stars to the service, but somebody needs to reevaluate the recipes.
