Visited for the first time last night. Food was absolutely perfect! Tasted amazing and the presentation was beautiful. The only problem is the washrooms are not accessible! With an increase in disabilities and the large senior population this is not acceptable!

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
