First time in OOB and was there for a Charity bike ride ( New England Parkinson's ride) and had no expectation of good food in a tourist town. Was pleasantly surprised by Bua Thai. Food spice was specified on a 1 to 5 scale and at 4, I found it a tad more than expected. But tasty.

My uncle and I were in Ocean Park, Maine, and wanted to grab some dinner. It was late on a Sunday night (9/28/14), and we didn't know what would still be open now that the summer season is over. We found Bua Thai on Saco Avenue and decided to give it a try. They were open until 9:30 on a... More

A very ordinary building on the outside has amazing food inside. I've eaten at Thai places all over the country and this was the best of all of them. There were things on the menu I hadn't seen anywhere else. Service was fast also. Menu is available online if you're planning for take out. Unlike other places in the area,... More

We had a variety of dishes here and they were all amazing! Great service, very reasonable prices. We only wished we were staying longer so we could have eaten here again!! Highly recommended!

One of the best Thai restaurants around. Very clean and decorated in a lovely Thai way. The food is fabulous. We went for dinner with friends and had four different meals...all were perfect. The staff is very friendly and efficient. We have been back several times and have had take out too.

We just got home from a most wonderful, exotic, flavorful meal at Bua Thai Restaurant and were so pleased we rushed to write a review. The flavors are as good as any Thai I've ever had, and I've been to some high-end gourmet restaurants. I appreciate that they offer plenty of delicious vegetarian options as well. I wish it wasn't...

From the unassuming look of it outside and its uninspired location, Bua Thai is easy to pass by. But this Thai restaurant is not only one of the only good places to eat in the Old Orchard Beach area, it is also a top-rate Thai haven for foodies. Neat as a pin inside, and nicely decorated, Bua Thai is a... More

We went on an evening that all the tables were full except for two two-person tables, side by side. They would not put them together for our family of four. Strike one. The owner suggested we sit outside, which we did. I had to go inside and remind them we were there. They were apologetic, but our food came and... More

I recently went with my 27 year old daugher and we were disappointed for the first time by our pad thai. There was too much sauce... and not so many shrimps... compared to another restaurant we tried the next day, in Saco, called Nava Thai. Next time, we will take something else...

I was skeptical with the high ratings, considering the overall low quality of food in OOB. We decided to give it a try. They were able to accommodate us with a last minute reservation which added to my doubts since usually the very good places are all full or take no reservations which is really a problem with a large...
