Family dinner out

The family always enjoys going to Bulai for a fun dinner out. The food quality is closer to take out than dining room, and some times the richness of the Thai flavours get lost a bit, but it is priced accordingly and we always keep going back.

Always good food. Sometimes a little too crowded. It feels like a bit of a jungle in there, so that's why I gave a 4 not a 5. Food has always been very good though.

We always ask ourselves why we don't come to Sammy's beautiful restaurant more often. The flavourful menu and friendly hospitality are so satisfying, it's well worth driving from Bowmanville.

I thought that I was spoiled by eating Thai food in Toronto over the last 10 years, boy was I wrong. My mom had eaten here about 6 years ago and as I do not live in Port Hope I had never had a chance to try this restaurant before. On our way through Port Hope my mom and I... More

I was recently at this restaurant and was disappointed. I have been to the owners other location and the food and service were great. This visit things were only average at best. The first order for drinks was way too slow. I thought they forgot us, and it wasn't busy at all. My wife raved about the spring rolls we... More

I recently visited with a large group of friends and was incredibly impressed with the service, food and the atmosphere of the restaurant. Our server was incredibly helpful with picking items on the menu, and our food was brought out very quickly. All of the food we had was INCREDIBLE! Red curry, pad thai, crispy chicken, etc.. it all tasted... More

The place is well decorated and has good service. We had coconut chicken soup and golden chicken curry, both were Ok, but not to our Thai food standards.
