Gonna keep this short and sweet :-

- authentic ✔️
- views ✔️
- food choices for people who enjoy Thai food for those who prefer western food ✔️
- live music ✔️ (Singer who comes in to sing but not live band)

I thoroughly enjoyed and will 100% revisit when back in Phuket

We have eaten here three times on this visit to Phuket and tried different things each time with no disappointment. Focused more on THAI food than the usual mix up of western dishes. Owner and his wife are lovely and there is entertainment in the form of a singer every evening if that’s your thing. Highly recommend the chicken pomelo salad and the crispy noodle yellow curry.

Today we took a wrong turn when looking for somewhere to eat lunch and found ourselves outside Bua Restaurant. Menu looked good so in we went. We had our pick of the tables so we chose a table over looking the little river below us complete with a couple of boats and sandy shore.
We ordered green chicken curry and pad thai; not at all adventurous but it was good, especially the green chicken curry; so good we ate every last drop of the sauce.
An atmospheric location with good food and lovely staff - not much not to like. We'll be back.

Reasonably priced and the amount of thought put into the dish presentation and flavour balance is impressive. I would describe as fusion western Thai cuisine. Thoughtful to provide us mosquito repellent as we sat alfresco in evening. :)

Decent Thai food with good flavours. Setting was nice and the view was OK but not charming. Maybe it would be better during high tide. Prices were mid range to a kinda expensive. Food presentation was nice.
