An unpretentious restaurant where you can unwind and talk and laugh with friends. Excellent food, spicy, bold flavors, beautiful presentation. The curries were authentic in flavor, the veges were crunchy and the portions were generous. The crispy fish was indeed crispy and the sauces are delicious. Thai iced coffee and tea were superb. Can't recommend this restaurant enough. It has... More

This was my first time at this restaurant. We started our meal with the Thai spring rolls which were very goo and served piping hot and very crispy. . My friend wanted the fried chicken wings which she seemed to enjoy, but I found them nothing special and would have preferred having the chicken satay. I had not even taken... More

I ordered delivery via a third party site, when the food came (on time and hot) the restaurant included several extra goodies! Not only was there rice and a little soup, but they also included a couple little dumplings. The food was very tasty, and the little extras were such a wonderful surprise! I would definitely order delivery from here... More

Had dinner w a large group here, dishes were adequate but not inspired. Spices tended to be a bit flat, tastes were all kinda the same.

We loved it the first time, but the second time was disappointing. We would probably try it again, since the food was fresh and preparations interesting. The prices were very good, but the fish dish was a little greasy and not made with fresh oil on the second visit. Pluses- the menu is extensive, and you can find something for... More

I travel to Thailand once a year but I still dream about dok bua. The atmosphere is unpretentious, the pricing is reasonable and the staff are amazing. Grilled Pork is the best main by far.

Dok Bua has a busy atmosphere and lots of tasty dishes for all kinds of eaters. The architecture is open and informal.
