I had not been here for several years and was rather shocked of the conditions, not very clean and deteriorated, the proprietor shouting so loud, disrupting our conversation. It needs a re-do for sure. The food is pretty good, although some dishes and glasses not very clean, maybe take out would be best.

Their Pad Thai used to be my favorite of all time. I stopped in for some carryout recently and found it to be very bland... nothing like I remember. Additionally, while waiting, I witness 3 seperate parties come in to get their "call in/carryout orders". None of them were greeted with their food. In fact all were greeted with "it... More

I ordered egg rolls to start; they were good, no complaints there. I then ordered beef Pad Thai and was disappointed to hear they no longer have cilantro..at all!! I understand that cilantro is one of those "Love it or Hate it" foods with very little in between, but come on, let's not completely give in to those who don't... More

the food here was okay, the Pad Thai looked good but I didn't have any of it. I had one of their house specials which was not very memorable. Will probably not come back here unless I'm really craving some Thai food in Madison.

Like several other recent reviewers, we had not been to Bahn Thai in quite a few years. What a disappointment! The service was extremely slow. One woman appeared to be serving the entire restaurant, with "help" from a teenage girl. The two bickered frequently (mother and daughter?), and it was pretty awkward. It took what felt like an eternity for... More

I, too, had not been to Bahn Thai in a long time, but I had memories of good food, timely service and a pleasant atmosphere. None of this happened. I took my grandchildren for Sunday lunch, and when we arrived, there was one other table filled. It took our server way too long to recognize us and though we ordered... More

I hadn't been to Bahn Thai in over 10 years. I had talked about it quite a bit to my husband and on a whim one date night, we pulled in to eat before our movie. It was early enough, so not many people in the restaurant. We thought, good, we will be able to get through quickly. We waited... More

Tucked away in a small strip mall I had be alert to find it. Only one waitress but she kept up well. Daily specials looked interesting and Saturday seafood one I ordered was tasty and substantial. Other dishes were above average. Presentation not very creative but we were there for the taste. I will keep it on my list to... More

So, got seated right away and like other reviewers have mentioned they have a parking lot which is handy for Willy St. Our waitress was friendly but very slow. Luckily we were not in a hurry. We tried a red curry dish 25A and a glass noodle dish 41? ( dishes are by number). The serving sizes were generous but... More

This has been my favorite all time restaurant for over ten years. I no longer live Madison but go out of my way to go to Madison just to come here. Best pad Thai ever!!! It's the pad Thai that I measure all other pad Thai too. It is best if you order it with tofu, and I'm not a... More
