the place looks good, food is Ok

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.

Am sorry to hear that you considered our food to be not up to your standards ,thankfully your review comes as a surprise as complaints about our food are always quite the opposite with people finding ours to be quite simply the best Thai cuisine they have ever had . In my eight plus years at this restaurant this is... More

I am giving the review a 4 star because of the food and the value. I think the food is very good, we do eat at quite a bit of Thai restaurants and this is one of our favourites. The two of us had an appetizer and two entrees each with a glass of wine and even with taxes it... More

This place has great food, but absolutely HORRIBLE service. I have only experienced bad service on several accounts at this restaurant. Several times I have eaten in the restaurant and been served by the same man. He just made me feel uncomfortable by staring and hovering around my table awkwardly. This alone s enough for me to stop going to... More

Dear Dougie M As a part owner of Bualai Taste of Thai I can honestly say that all of the staff including myself are of course very discouraged to find such a review as yours on Trip Advisor . Being so used to glowing reviews on Trip Advisor as well as many Business Excellence Awards it comes as a surprise... More

We just recently moved to Cobourg and have fallen in love with this special Thai restaurant. The presentation of the food is always beautiful and the food is always delicious. We have travelled a lot and eaten in many Thai restaurants across Canada as well as in Thailand, and this place ranks high amongst the best. I particularly enjoy the... More

We had dinner with friends and tried about 7 or 8 dishes all of which were spot on. This is my new favorite Thai place.

I love this restaurant. It has a most welcoming feel. The décor is perfect for a Thais restaurant. The food is very good and there is a fine variety of Thais dishes. The food is very fresh and delicious and the price is very reasonable. I would recommend it for lunch or for dinner.

Went to Bualai Taste of Thai for dinner, I read only good reviews prior to going. I did read it was recommended to make a reservation, but, when I called there was no answer. So, I figured we would give it a shot and just walk in. First impression was good until it took over 10 minutes to be seated... More

Sammy the owner (female) is a gracious host and her restaurant does her proud. The food is delicious and the lunches are a bargain.
