This multi-award winning Thai restaurant has a glowing reputation among the locals who frequent it, and a growing number of travelers are discovering its hidden charms. Set in a charming traditional Thai house, the menu is exceptional and its diverse selections and spicy flavors compliment the relaxed, unhurried atmosphere of the surrounds. Popular dishes include the Stir-fried Young Coconut Tips with Shrimp and the Squid Stuffed with Crab and Pork in a Red Curry. Delicious desserts include Home Made Coconut Ice Cream.
Despite the good reviews, we had a terrible experience at Baan Khanitha on Sathorn. We were served 2-3 dishes/drinks that we never ordered, including beer. We did not touch the food and immediately informed the waiters, who took them away. At the end, we were charged on all dishes, including the ones we did not order and did not eat! A rip-off place!! Never go there!!
the last reviewer had a terrible experience! any normal person would have walked out, made a scene, not paid a dime or all the above.... so what does this guy do? He was so furious that he let them keep the change (600B) before storming off... ooooh, you sure showed them....haha!
anyhow, i also have been to khanita a couple of times. Nice food, but very over-rated. there are better places out there.
Had dinner at the Soi 23 location last night. Ordered a lemon sea bass that didn't arrive at our table. I thought, "no problem", I will just have them take it off the bill. When I requested this it took 45 minutes and they wanted me to wait longer until the "owner" came. They insisted that we got the fish, now I would know if a fish came to the table. DEFINITELY NOT RECOMMENDED - we got ripped off big time. I have eaten there many times in 16 years - but I will never return
I am an expat living in Bkk. Having read about the positive reviews and awards Baan Khanitha has, I decided to treat some friends visiting Bkk to a family dinner. There were 15 of us, 11 adults and 4 children (12, 10, 8, & 4yrs). Food was average. The Red Duck Curry with Grapes and Green Curry (Beef and Chicken) turned out to be somewhat watery. The Prawn Salad was a too spicy, even though we asked for less spicy. I like the pomelo salad though, just the right mix of spice, sweetness and fragrance. The old house setting and ambience was a nice touch. We had a slightly too much to eat, even though the waiter tried to convince us twice that we had not ordered enough. At the end only 4 of us had room to share 2 servings of mango stickly rice.
Overall, dinner was fine until I got the bill. Bt 12,600 (US$ 370) for the food and drinks (we only had 2 beers, 4 soft drinks/juices and the rest of us had mineral water).
Price : US$ 20-25 per person (without wines)
Having lived in Bkk the last half year, I felt that this place is definitely over-rated. If you are prepared to pay this price, Lemongrass on Soi 24 offers better food experience.
If you fancy dining in old Thai houses, there are other restaurants prices less than half of this and offering food just as good; eg. Ruen Mallika, Ban Chiang & Mango Tree (with live Thai music).
This is a traditional Thai restuarant, upscale in quality and service but not expensive to screen out the middle class. The Thais eat here, too. That says a lot. It is very clean and attractive, the food is as good as it gets, the staff is very attentive and polite, and the price is where any tourist can afford it. It gets an unqualified recommendation from me. Note this place is pretty much exclusively Thai food, so if some farang going with you wants a hamburger, you won't find that kind of food here.
Baan Khanitha has always been one of my favourite Thai restaurants in Bangkok - a place which I had highly recommended to many friends. Food here has always been tops until our last visit in October 2005 when the soup was bland and most of the other dishes arrived at the table cold.
Apart from that, we always enjoyed the service which is top-notch. Ask for the toilet and you shall be escorted all the way. For smokers, there is a lovely garden patio.
On our second trip to Thailand we visited Baan Kanitha at the soi 23 restaurant.
Tried it on the off-chance - no idea what to expect, we had just picked up a card somewhere and thought it sounded nice. Wow, what a result!
Took a while to walk there from the Asok Skytrain stop on Sukhumvit, and the staff on the door were a little surprised to see us walk in off the street. I guess most visitors come by car and I think we will get a cab next time.
There�s great ambiance with simple but elegant d�cor. The excellent staff, helpful and friendly without being intrusive, will assist with menu choices if you like and are very tourist-tolerant.
The appetiser thing with leaves and little dried shrimp and chutney and other bits is just great. No idea what it�s called or even what some of the bits were, but we really enjoyed it!
We went through the menu and chose a couple of things we knew of (pandan chicken, chicken with cashews) but asked the waiter for a couple of other suggestions. All were marvellous. Good choice of wines also.
You know the thing about Thai curries getting hotter the further south you get? Quite true, but if like me you like western-level spicy but are cautious of the chilli level you get down towards Malaysia there is plenty of choice.
Not the cheapest Thai restaurant around but you really do get great food. (If you want cheap, go for Suda off Soi 14 - no frills but REALLY worth tracking down).
Our impending Thai trip takes us to Bangkok again and we will definitely eat at Baan Kanitha (and Suda!) at least once. On recommendation of others here, I�ll try the pomelo salad. Sounds delicious.
Baan Khanitha has great food, the service is attentive and amusing, and the restaurant decor is a study in all things antique Thai. It is a restaurant that is visited again and again by a contingent of American teachers from Saudi Arabia. I had such a wonderful experience in August that I am making time for a return visit in October. By all means go and enjoy!
Consistency and service.
Baan Khanita is a sure stop in every of my BKK trips and it's become a favourite of relatives and friends as well.
The new restaurant on South Sathon Road is simply beautiful. Despite its expansion, the restaurant has maintained its wonderful service and staff are ever so willing to assist and not snooty like a restaurant along the same road.
Pick any item on the menu and u'll never go wrong. Every dish is exquisite. And never leave Baan Khanita without desserts. Unmatched.
The restaurant is situated in the residence area and along the way is very pleasant. The atmosphere of the restaurant is very nice with an excellent parking spaces. The food is very suitable for the European and some Thais who can't stand the hot taste like me. Time to wait for the first appetizer is not too bad. And to have the table full of our order is less than 20 minutes. The atmosphere is full with hospitality and I think it is better than my home. The price is a little bit too high for the Thais but for the tourists, it is quite cheap. I can say that it worths every pennies. Try it out.
