About Us

Bann Thai (Thai House) Restaurant

I immigrated to the United States about 35 years ago as a student and quickly fell in love with the States. However, there was one thing I missed greatly from Thailand, our cuisine. I've visited many, many Thai restaurants over these past many years and have found many that offered good food and, many that have not. Here in Riverside, I've always enjoyed visiting the Thai restaurants and sharing ideas and memories of our homeland and cuisine with the owners. Through all these experiences, there was always my desire to bring authentic Thai cuisine to the people, my way!

With the encouragement, commitment, and hard work of my wife, Paweena, this dream and desire has finally has become a reality with Sam's Bann Thai Restaurant.

Our hope and goal is to introduce you to the finer nuances of our cuisine: the complex flavors, the varying textures, the combinations of seemingly different ingredients that, when combined, just work wonderfully together!

We encourage you to try something new, something old, something traditional, or something recommended by one of our staff. You won't be disappointed!

Our true desire is to provide you with a taste sensation you'll want to share with your friends and family. We highly encourage you to share your thoughts and suggestions with us as we continually strive to provide the best we can offer to tease and satisfy your palate'Authentic Thai Cuisine!!
