Small restaurant in Old Orchard Beach, ME. Not very good looking from the outside, but the food is excellent. Very good service, and, did I mention, excellent food. Vegetable tempura and spicy pad thai with basil was delicious. Will definitely go back.

This place delivered right to our hotel and had great food, fresh, flavorful and relatively quick. I would definitely recommend for delivery or takeout.

Great restaurant great vibe when you walk through the door. The use of wood as furniture was very nice and refreshing. Our food was timely and service was nice. I'd give this place an 8 out of 10!

We've been eating at the Bua Thai for several years whenever we come into town and they never seem to disappoint. We were skeptical to try it because we never see any cars in the lot and it is such a small place, but they have a big flavor. We've had the red curry and basil pad Thai which are... More

We had the golden bags to start, very good. Flavorful, well seasoned, perfectly golden brown. Lightly flavored plum sauce. Excellent dish. My wife had Khaw Phad Kra Phera Phed (Spicy basil fried rice) Very tasty, well seasoned, only complaint there wasn't enough tofu or spicy basil in it. I had chicken Kaeng Phanaeng (Panang curry) Lots of chicken, lots more... More

We were staying at a motel nearby and wanted to get something different for lunch. They have a great lunch specials menu and we were easily able to find something for our family to try. While this wasn't the best thai food we've ever had, it was very good and for $6 it is hard to complain. I would definitely... More

I have never had Thai food before in my life, but when we moved to town we kept driving by to get home and the smell out of there smelled to die for so i had to try. My husband and I spent 50ish bucks because we wanted to try everything we could. We got soup, which i adored and... More

We needed a quick meal for visitors and ordered take out from Bua Thai. It took 20 minutes to get 3 entrees and one chicken satay, on this mid June day. We noticed several take out bags waiting to be picked up and a few tables occupied. For this small kitchen expect longer wait during peak season,. (We have encountered... More

I love Bua Thia as a quick, consistently very "good" take-out, local option. I've never eaten in, and would not be opposed to it, but have found it to be a reliable take-out and delivery option. Another review rated Bua Thia low because it "wasn't the best Thia food" they had ever had. I've eaten Thia across the country and... More
