Our third choice!

No reservations at the first, no babies at the second and we stumbled upon this gem. All tasty and fresh. Cooked to order. The only weak point was the fresh spring rolls. A little light on the flavor but still the whole dinner was excellent.

Went there for first time and I have to say I was very disappointed. Pad Thai noodles were very soggy. Saw them pull noodles out of a container that was sitting on the counter. For a Thai restaurant, I expected fresh and delicious but got neither. The outside of the restaurant was a dump. The inside was slightly better and... More

After spending the day sightseeing with my husband and grown daughter we wanted something different for lunch from the usual offerings in a beach town. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Bua Thai. The place is very cute inside, staff was very friendly and the food delicious - a fantastic value too - $6 and $7 generously portioned lunch specials.... More

We had dinner here while visiting the OOB area. The food and service here were wonderful. I would make a point of eating here again when in the area.

A small group of us had to be in OOB for a memorial service and we decided to head toward the beach for some food and drink. Of course, this being that weird time of year where so many places begin to close, we couldn't find anything that wasn't fried food so I did a quick search on Trip Advisor... More

Unexpected in this town, kind of in the middle of nowhere but quite good Thai food. The owners were from Bangkok where I have visited several times and I'm not sure how they find freezing Maine but I'm glad they were there.

This place is phenomenal. My husband and I frequently get take-out here--the food is always fresh and well prepared. They have a very small dining area, so I imagine they could fill up during peak season. We have not tried out their delivery service, but we like that there is an option. We have always found the staff friendly as... More

Wanted a quick lunch to go so ordered some spicy basil fried rice with beef and broccoli stir fry with chicken to share. The food was ready in under 15 minutes and perfectly prepared. Portions were good and everything was tasty. We're big fans of Thai and this place is one of our favorites. I make sure to stop by... More

I visited the Bua Thai Restaurant last week with a friend and I was very pleased with the service and food that I got. I plan to return for more food in the future
