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

ate here on a Monday night after hearing rave reviews from another couple at the b&b we were staying at..went in around 5:45 & got seated immediately...10 minutes later the place was jammed with customers for dinner. Ordered Kee Moa Noodles which was excellent & the wife had Pat Thai which she raved about. I'm not a big Thai food... 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.

Boda suggests that its a Thai restaurant, but its much more than that. Its got a cool little bar for quick meals and enough tables and chairs for a proper sit down meal. We ordered a variety of rice+ dishes, beef, chicken etc and they were all really lovely. The flavours in the meats were superb, strong and very tasty... More

Went here with my family and had a great time. The food was eclectic and unique, from quail eggs and half quail to oysters and pork hock. Everything had unique seasoning and intense flavor. As someone who has traveled to central america, specifically Guatemala I was surprised to find a drink with Mezcal at a "Thai restaurant". I think it... More

Our family enjoyed a delightful meal at Boda before going to a basketball game at the Civic Center. The service was super quick and our servers were friendly and efficient. We ordered a medley of skewers to share all of which were delicious and I also had a bowl of the coconut soup which was fabulous. I would definitely recommend... More

We finally got to try Boda and we are so glad we did. We walked in without a reservation and were seated at the bar immediately. The bartender was very friendly and informative and we just had the most wonderful time throughout the meal. My partner had Pad Thai and I had Fried Rice with Shrimp and Crab. We both... More
