I didn’t come here just for the decor; the food is first-class as well. For an appetizer, I would suggest the crab rangoon, which is creamy, rich, and complemented by the sauce served with it. The egg rolls are pretty good as well, but be forewarned that they are not the traditional ones you get in a Chinese restaurant. These are less crispy and more doughy, but good nonetheless.
I must admit that I have never had either the soups or the salads, as I am way too anxious to get on with the main course! They all look fabulous, though, if you are interested. Nor have I had the curries (not really my thing), but I have had a ton of friends have the curry, and they absolutely adore it. I value their suggestions, so I would go for it.
I have had the pad Thai, usually with chicken, and it is wonderful. The portions are huge here, and there is more than enough for you to take home. The pad Thai is sweet, with a ton of fresh ingredients, and there are so many peanuts that they basically encrust the entire dish - fabulous! The fried rice isn’t a bad bet either; once again, the portion is huge!
My favorite item on the menu, though, is the spicy garlic. I have gotten it with both chicken and beef, and it was wonderful both times. It is sweet, spicy, and prepared with a ton of chicken, carrots, peppers, and mushrooms. All served with a side of rice. I also really like the cashew nut dish with either chicken or beef. It is spicy, a little sweet, and served with peppers, cashews, onions and carrots. If you aren’t in the mood for spicy, I would suggest the broccoli. It is a light dish with a garlic soy sauce.
There is a full bar, and they have some very nice wine and cocktail selections. In addition, the desserts are quite good, although they do change often. Bah Thai has won a ton of awards in Memphis, and I will tell you why - the food and service are amazing. Everything is the same whether you are a party of two or a party of 30.
