Can't fault the food - we devoured everything. All good quality, great flavours/spices. The service was a little hit and miss but not bad, and if anything added to the experience. Being asked if we wanted coffees before the mains arrived (they were a little slow) sent the owner running off to the kitchen in a panic! But they came... More

Didn't enjoy the food at all. Restaurant very small, a little uncomfortable. Expensive as well. Dont mind paying more if the food is good.

Haven't had takeaway for quite a while from here, the gentleman who used to run it doesn't seem to be there now, he was always very friendly, the lady who now runs it is rather brusque! The food however is still excellent! Mixed starters are really good, as is all the food! It is quite expensive however, but it's so... More

Used to visit this Thai restaurant years ago, decided on a quick takeaway tonight! Two mains and a rice dish - £28. One of which was a Beef Masiman which contained just four pieces of beef! No wonder the place was empty at 7:40 on a Friday night! Will not be revisiting again, got the feeling we were well and... More

Worst Thai green curry I've eaten. No creaminess at all the chicken was overcooked and the vegetables tasted strange. Also asked as they had Pad thai as a side if I could have it as a main with some chicken or prawns. "No" was the grunt I got back.

If someone asked me last you which was the best Thai restaurant in Ipswich, I would have said Baipo without a doubt. It used to be just one Thai man running the place with just a little help, he was so helpful and always had a little surprise for us. Like another reviewer said, we were surprised to see all...

Baipo used to be a favourite of ours. After a previous poor experience we decided to give it another go. What a mistake. No wonder there are tables available on a Saturday. Apart from the appalling service, the food orders came up either wrong, overcooked and with a large gap between individual dishes. We were led to understand that takeaway... More

There are positive reviews for this restaurant and certainly the menu reads very impressively - but surprisingly high prices which are presumably justified. However, the service was so dire as to require a cancellation and walk out. This is not what is wanted and perhaps the meal would have been as good as some reviewers suggest. We will never know...
