Go Zeed Zaad at Baan Thai 19 Soi Mill Street
For the authentic taste of Thailand


ZeedZaad is a Thai phrase for the mouth's instinctive cooling reaction when experiencing spicy food and Baan Thai means Thai Home. At ZeedZaadBaan Thai Restaurant we aim to make our home your Thai home of Spice for the evening leaving you 'feeling good with oneself' - 'Sabai' and rekindling memories of the 'Land Of Smiles'. 


Proprietor Kuhn Saitong from Chiang Mai, Thailand's Rose of the North, has successfully built on Baan Thai's long established reputation for providing authentic Thai food in Guernsey. Saitong was practically raised in the kitchen as her entire family has worked in various restaurants including the popular Top North Guest House. Saitong moved to Guernsey, with her family after a spell in Hong Kong, where her Thai food evenings in Happy Valley were a popular Wednesday 'race night' attraction amongst friends. 


Anyone who has experienced Thai food will have a tale of stumbling upon their favourite eatery while strolling through the soi's and side streets of Thailand. Saitong's vision is to keep it simple and bring the 'taste' of these streets to Guernsey in Soi Mill Street - somewhat similarly hidden away in the Old Quarter of town.

 

Unable physically to bring the fresh markets, warm beaches and Thai ways to Guernsey, Kuhn Saitong wishes to give clients the 'taste' they yearn for the moment they leave Thailand. To offer the true authentic taste of Thailand fresh ingredients are sourced daily and all meats are freshly cooked at time of order.


Assisting Saitong is her principal chef Kuhn Noi, who learnt her skills from her mother, a chef in the fresh markets of Issan (NE Thailand). Noi previously specialised in cooking Thai food directly in Guernsey homes and many of you may have already had the pleasure of sampling her delicious Thai meals.


Our Thai Restaurant caters for all tastes from mild and flavoursome to fantastically hot and spicy and we will guide you through the menu to meet your preference. Some of our more popular Thai dishes include:

 

  • Sai-Oua (Chiang Mai Sausage) from Saitong's home
  • Pla Salmon Nam Jin Samrod - Steamed Salmon with salad and spicy hot & sour chilli dip
  • Pra Neua - Beef with Chill & spring onion seasoned with lemon grass, lime leaves & coriander
  • Kaeng Kiew Wan Gai - Thai Green chicken Curry with coconut milk and pea aubergines or peas depending on availability
  • Pad Thai - popular stir fried rice noodles with egg, spring onions & bean sprouts in a sweet tamarind sauce served with ground peanuts
  • Khanom Bua-Loi Soong Si - traditional Thai desert of rice flour in coconut milk & pandanus juice

Thai dishes for the connoisseur can be ordered off menu i.e. Som Tam (Spicy Thai papaya salad) given advance notice and subject to fresh ingredients. There are a range of non spicy foods, if Zeed Zaad is not for your palate. 


Party menus can be tailor made at your request contact us at tawantai@gmail.com


Thai meals are best accompanied by cold beer (Singha & Tiger are available) or cold white or rose wine. Our extensive wine list aims to cover all tastes but if feeling 'Zeed Zaad' a cold ginger beer, or ice cream does the trick!


Zeed Zaad Baan Thai appreciates lunch hours are short and have created a simple but effective lunch-in menu consisting of rice with one dish or noodle soup - a popular dish with Thai people.

We are also open for takeaways with 30 minutes notice but reserve the right to close this service if the restaurant is busy in the interests of our in-house diners.
