Went to the restaurant after a long day of driving. We received a great welcome and when we asked about gluten-free options, they were very accommodating. Things went well until the food came and then we did not see our waiter again. More on that later. The food was amazing. We had regular spring rolls and vegetable rolls to start.... More

I must admit to surprise when, after having visited Bualai Taste of Thai, I saw how popular it was on TripAdvisor. My experience there was not something that will persuade me to return. The decor and service were, respectively, pleasant and excellent. However, perhaps my family's selection of dishes was uniformly unfortunate, or perhaps this restaurant is best appreciated by...

I love love love this restaurant. The decor creates a great ambience that makes you feel that you are on vacation. The food is incredible. I always recommend starting with the Mango salad and then enjoy some appetizers and entrees. I often ask the staff to recommend a course and they have never disappointed me. You get a great quantity... More

The Bualia never disappoints. When we are entertaining out of town guests, we stroll downtown along the river to the Bualia. The menu offers a fabulous array of authentic Thai dishes. We often go with a group of friends and each person orders something different so that we can share, that experience allows us to try varied and numerous dishes.... More

The first thing you notice walking into Bualai Taste of Thai are the gold statues. The restaurant is decorated flamboyantly with statues from Thailand. It gives the restaurant an authentic feel. The servers are quick and friendly and immediately get you settled to make your selection. There is a good variety of dishes and the food is very good.. Although... More

Stopped here on our way to a camp in Michigan with a few friends! Cant believe how great the service and food was! This is by far my favourite thai restaurant in Ontario so far! Keep it up!

My husband and I recently stopped here on our way to Prince Edward County. As soon as I walked in the doors, I was amazed at the beautiful decor which I later learned was all purchased in Thailand. We enjoyed lunch here and everything we ordered was delicious! Best calamari I've ever tasted and the cashew chicken will knock your... More

Our family often stops here on the way to the cottage and whenever we pass through Port Hope. Always great service and always a great meal. Portions are well sized. The pad thai is the best I've ever had! It's worth ordering double and bringing the rest for lunch the next day.

My Wife and I stop here often on trips to and from the cottage while driving down the 401. We both have eaten at countless Thai restaurants and agree this is by far our favourite because of the food, atmosphere, and care Sammy has taken in ensuring the authenticity of the experience. Be sure to get the Calamari and Thai... More
