Good Thai food although the portions could be a bit bigger. There has been a Thai restaurant at these premises since the eighties but now with different owners.

We love the food at Bua Thai and are regular visitors here. Every time the food is of high quality and the service if extremely friendly and efficient. We have eaten here in large parties and as a couple. Highly recommend!

Booked here after struggling to get in elsewhere. Nice surprise!! Very lovely food and nice wine too. Lots of choice! We got a combo of different starters, fried delights and peanut sauce; what’s not to like? All our main courses were delicious too, nice noodles!...More

I have been visiting Bua Thai for over 20 years. The food is always excellent and very consistent, as good today as it was years ago. Good fresh ingredients, well cooked and always very tasty. Service is efficiently formal. Give it a try.
