Ban Thai restaurant has received
the „best Thai food“ award from a local newspaper for many years now (every years),
also Banthai got top ten for the best restaurants in Iceland (DV. Newspaper 17.06.11) .

Our menu nearly 200 items to choose

We offer a very wide range of dishes and everyone can find

something to their liking, whether it is strong or mild, but the

dishes are all marked with a chili-signs
so that you can see the strength.

The one to three chili strength dishes are clearly labelled and

are mostly well accepted, but the four to five chili strength is

only for those that are really used to eating spicy food.
This is always said when the customers order the stronger chili

dishes, just as a warning, to make sure they can eat them,

because we don‘t like our food to get thrown away. This goes

similar to changing the dishes.

We do not change the dishes to milder or stronger
because it can change the taste and we don‘t know
how strong the customer can tolerate the strength
if the dish would be made stronger.

It‘s just best to keep the dish as it is.

In the 30 years of being located at the same place
and being under the same owners
the restaurant has built itself a name and many customers come here regularily so it is disappointing to see

Our restaurant in comparison to most in Iceland,
ours tend to be cheaper. 
Given by our entire food ingredient products are sent from Thailand, we make it more convenient to the average price range when it should be higher. 

Ban Thai is either way not received as a “fast food” conditioned restaurant,
but more as a "casual / fine dining".
