At first I was hesitant about this restaurant. Rarely saw more than a couple cars here at a time. Later learned it's big on take out. We ate in, and glad we did. Cozy, warm and invitingly decorated. The treatment at the tables was really unique and authentic. And the food did not disappoint. Had drunken noodles and steamed dumplings... More

This was my first visit to Bua Thai, though my mother had been twice before. We arrived at 2pm, well after any lunch crowd, and we're pleased they were open in the hours between lunch and dinner service. Our server was fast and efficient, professional and not overly friendly, and answered our questions with certainty. All great traits. The food... More

Small restaurant in Old Orchard Beach, ME. Not very good looking from the outside, but the food is excellent. Very good service, and, did I mention, excellent food. Vegetable tempura and spicy pad thai with basil was delicious. Will definitely go back.

This place delivered right to our hotel and had great food, fresh, flavorful and relatively quick. I would definitely recommend for delivery or takeout.

Great restaurant great vibe when you walk through the door. The use of wood as furniture was very nice and refreshing. Our food was timely and service was nice. I'd give this place an 8 out of 10!

We've been eating at the Bua Thai for several years whenever we come into town and they never seem to disappoint. We were skeptical to try it because we never see any cars in the lot and it is such a small place, but they have a big flavor. We've had the red curry and basil pad Thai which are... More

We had the golden bags to start, very good. Flavorful, well seasoned, perfectly golden brown. Lightly flavored plum sauce. Excellent dish. My wife had Khaw Phad Kra Phera Phed (Spicy basil fried rice) Very tasty, well seasoned, only complaint there wasn't enough tofu or spicy basil in it. I had chicken Kaeng Phanaeng (Panang curry) Lots of chicken, lots more... More

We were staying at a motel nearby and wanted to get something different for lunch. They have a great lunch specials menu and we were easily able to find something for our family to try. While this wasn't the best thai food we've ever had, it was very good and for $6 it is hard to complain. I would definitely... More

I have never had Thai food before in my life, but when we moved to town we kept driving by to get home and the smell out of there smelled to die for so i had to try. My husband and I spent 50ish bucks because we wanted to try everything we could. We got soup, which i adored and... More
