Very nice Thai restaurant with subtle flavors and friendly service. No reservations and a little noisy.

The food took my palette to a place it's never been before. Healthy and fresh and cutting edge. I only wish this place was in my home town. Yum Yum.. What what!!!

This isn't your typical Thai food with 100 options but rather a well-thought out restaurant with a few delectable items. Awesome!

We had heard a ton about Boda around town, so we tried it out as a late night bite, and sampled 3 skewers (chicken, beef, and shrimp), got the fried quail eggs with soy sauce and green onion, and the Miang Kum Sum-oh, which was a single bite salad on a spoon...very interesting. Without drinks, our food cost would have... More

It was a rainy, busy night when we arrived. Waited about 20 min and sat at the food bar. Food was delicious. Waitstaff knew what was gf and what was not. He asked the kitchen when in doubt to double check. Casual place with a bar and drinks were reasonably priced. Did not feel rushed.

It is a lively atmosphere no reservations. If you are getting a table expect a wait, the crowds just don't stop coming. It is a constant rotation. Food is excellent.

Went here for an incredible romantic evening and the service and food were amazing. It was a small restaurant but it made the vibe great. We ordered the small tapas plates which were to die for. I also tried quail eggs for the first time and they were delicious. I don't think I have a bad thing to say about... More

Boda has been a gem in the city for several years. It is hip and tasty at the same time. All the items are excellent, service is always solid and the beverages among the best locally. I hesitate on writing a review because as one of my favorite spots it is getting crowded and sometime hard to get a table... More

Here you can taste very good Thai food with some american influences. The food is not really original but close to the real Thai food. Good choice, good service, nice atmosphere.
