Ate here with friends for the first time. Great food! Larb Salad was cool, refreshing but complex. Had to send one dish back because it came out brutally spicy for some reason but the staff was kind. Overall one of those great Thai experiences (which don't always occur) of leaving very full because everything was so good.

We went over to Dok Bua Thai Kitchen on Saturday, September 13th for lunch. We had an expired Groupon so decided to check the place out. Food and service were excellent. But I am giving this place only 3 dots!! First every bill comes to you with 18% tip added!!! In addition, they add something which I have never seen... More

Dok Bua in Coolidge Corner has fast become our favorite eating spot in Coolidge Corner - and it has some tough competition with Otto, The Regal Beagle, Zaftigs and a rake of other places. The reasons are threefold. First: The food is very good value for money. Very tasty and plenty of options. You can even eat quite healthily here... More

We ordered in a few nights ago. My husband got a dinner special which came with a lot of food but was short on duck in the pad Thai dish. I ordered chicken pad Thai. My husband and I both enjoyed the tom yum soup that came with his meal. Our pad Thai dishes were not so good. Mine tasted... More

This is absolutely one of the best Thai places i have ever eaten at. You can bring your own alcohol to this restaurant. They also deliver. I got the chicken pad thai lunch special and it comes with 2 appetizers for under 10 dollars. That is very reasonable. They also deliver. It's actually a fun experience when you sit down... More

I am a huge thai food fan, and this place is easily in my top 3 favorite places (including those in California). The first time I tried Dok Bua, I ordered it for delivery. They were very quick - much faster than the 45min they advertised on their website - and everything was delicious. I ordered the spicy basil chicken,... More

A group of friends meet one Friday monthly at a pre selected restaurant in or around Boston to catch up and hang out. This month we selected Dok Bua That Kitchen based on information from Trip Advisor. When we arrived I went to wash my hands and was "....concerned ..." about the state of the backroom where the slop sink... More

We had a great night, not due to the place but the company we were in. Our food was delivered in part - the first three entree's came out together and then the fourth about fifteen to twenty minutes later. That was weird to begin with as all of us could not start our meal at the same time. Then... More

If you want your taste buds to feel like you are in Thailand again, you must eat here. Maybe its not so fancy and the menus looks outdated, but the food is so authentic and delicious. I was so happy to find a place that know how to use the right spices and flavors that makes you feel in the... More

Huge menu. Lots of interesting choices. Fast service. A bit of a bustle. Seems to be a hot take-out restaurant as well as sit-in. Service was great and we didn't have to wait long for the kitchen. Will return.
