Boda is the best spot in Southern Maine for Thai food. The menu is large enough that everyone in your party can find something (including gluten free) though not exhausting to look through. Reasonable prices with a late night menu that serves food until 1am. The bartenders are top notch and friendly and the restaurant clean. The Beef Panaeng is... More

My daughter and I enjoyed a great shopping weekend and we were lucky enough to have dinner here. The food was fabulous! We had the Kee Mao Noodles and the Yaowarat Duck both were out of this world best Thai we ever tasted! Highly recommended.

We drive an hour to get to Boda, but, it is well worth the trip. It never disappoints. Atmosphere is relaxing, drinks innovative, and food is yummy. They also have a large gluten free menu. Limited parking in the lot next door. No reservations. .

Arrived on a Friday night around 7:15 without a reservation- but no worries as they don't take them anyway. Waited about 20 minutes for a table- and the food was quickly served, beautiful and so flavorful- a new twist on Pad Thai-- the curry was also excellent. Loved it. Not a large dining room- entree pricing around $15 & up.

The moment you walk in the door and experience your first breath you know you are in for an unbelievable meal. Started with the bacon wrapped asparagus which were so delicious we had them for dessert also. Next came the Tom Ka soup, silky without an overpowering taste of coconut, the best I've ever had. My wife ordered the Papaya... More

Although there is a thai theme, the cuisine is in a style of its own. All I've had has been great. I've had to wait a little but it's worth it.

I have been to Boda for dinner many times and it has NEVER failed. The food is almost indescribable, "Thai street food" doesn't even begin to translate to the level of how unique, delicious and delightful a meal at Boda is. The appetizers are each their own experience, I highly recommend the qual eggs and the mussels (ask for extra... More

Was recommended this restaurant by a local. Went on a Saturday night - was busy but they don't take reservations, so was able to put our name down on the waiting list. Was told 45 minutes, so we went for a drink nearby. Came back and shown to our table immediately. I had bacon wrapped scallops as a starter followed... More

We arrived at the restaurant, without a booking and only limited time. Despite the restaurant being full, we were found seats and advised as to what could be cooked quickly. The food was superb and we were out in time, thanks to the helpful servers.
