Bualai Taste of Heaven

This restaurant is fantastic. The food is excellent and the owner is a lovely lady that takes pride in pleasing each customer. Arrive closer to the 5:00 PM time if you want to go when it's not as busy on a weekend. If driving back to Toronto, take the lake route. Ask the owner and she'll tell you... read more

The service is great... thanks Mr. Waiter!! The Buddha Beer and Thai beer is great too! The calamari is to die for. The pad thai as well as spring rolls just delicious! Beef and black bean sauce was also amazing! Highly recommended! :)

I have been here many times for their shrimp/chicken pad Thai, and I can honestly say that I will keep coming back to this place when I am craving Thai food because it is so damn good!!! The service here has always been slow but it is worth the wait because most items I have ordered on the menu are... More

Ordered takeout last weekend. Knew they would be busy so placed the order about 4:30 for pickup at 6:30. Christian who took the order was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Order was ready right on time. Crispy chicken, spicy chicken and shrimp, BBQ pork pad Thai , beef curry and mango salad were all fresh, hot and absolutely... More

My daughter & I revisited this restaurant & were expecting to be greeted by a lady in a lovely Thai costume but were surprised to see a man in black, Christian! He could not be persuaded to change into a dress! We had a good time joking around with him during the course of the meal. We were there for... More

I usually review places I find on my travels & this one is local, but I'm commenting because my neighbours might have missed it. Everything about this restaurant is great - the decor, the service & the FOOD. We like the main dishes but we return again & again for the soups. So for a slimming lunch or celebratory meal... More

I ordered pad thai and it was quite good. Not as good as I'm used to (living in Toronto) but good enough. The lunch specials are quite the good deal with the spring roll and soup (lemongrass I think). The decor is lovely (sorry no pics!!!) and the guava candies with the bill are a nice touch. If you ask... More

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.
