About Ban Yai

Bringing the exotic flavours of Thailand to London, Ban Yai is a charming Thai restaurant on Watermill Way. With exposed brick walls, Ban Yai provides a cosy setting for indulging in authentic Thai cuisine in. Whet your appetite with some chicken satay or por pia (deep-fried spring rolls stuffed with clear bean noodles and shredded vegetables served with a chilli sauce). Then try some traditional pad thai, or go for some kaeng dang (Thai red curry in a coconut milk with aubergines, red & green peppers, bamboo shoots, chilli, lime leaves, and Thai basil). Popular with the Southeast Asian cuisine loving foodies of Colliers Wood and the surrounding areas, Ban Yai can get busy. Book a table in advance to avoid disappointment!

Food was tasty and well presented. Service was okay. Have had much better Thai food elsewhere, hence the rating of 4. The area around the table we were at could do with a clean, especially the walls.
