Baan Thai is a busy and vibrant Thai restaurant on Coldharbour Lane in London’s buzzing Brixton. The delicious food, laid-back vibe and super-friendly staff make it a favourite with locals and a pre-concert crowd headed for the Brixton Academy. Baan Thai restaurant’s cheery dining room is decorated with vibrant colours, comfortable seating and holiday-coloured lights. Baan Thai is rightly proud that all its staff, including the chef, are Thai, adding an indisputable flavour of Thailand to their authentic menu. If you already know and love Thai food as most of Britain seems to, you’ll be delighted to find most of your favourite dishes on the menu, including tom yum gai soup, lovely curries like massaman, jungle, red and green. International wines, beers and soft drinks are very reasonably priced, so you can make an outing to Baan Thai a regular occurrence. Baan Thai is perfect for a quick and delicious meal with friends.

I'd been here a few years back and been impressed, but when I returned a week ago, I was disappointed. Lumps of cartilage in the fish cakes (which did not taste like fish), too much corn flour in the sauces, tough beef, overly succulent chicken (which I think can only be the result of some sort of filler) and so so service. In all fairness, it was not awful, but it was the kind of food you'd be pleased to knock up at home, rather than what you'd expect to be served in a restaurant. We also ended up paying £50.00 for two starters, two mains, rice and three beers, so it's not exactly cheap either.
Hands down the Best Thai food I've eaten outside of Thailand at astonishingly low prices. Fantastic, fast and friendly service ! GO! NOW!
