“Very Good Thai Food.”
Reviewed March 25, 2012

The fact is Thai food is always more expensive than Chinese and Vietnamese food, I don't know why. Bua Thai is one of the more established Thai restaurants in Edmonton, you can't go wrong with the food there.

“Best restaurant in Edmonton”
Reviewed December 31, 2011

This has been our favorite restaurant for years. We are never disappointed when we eat here. The food is simply amazing. Our favorite is the green curry and pad Thai.

“Fabulous Food, Aweful Service (every time)”
Reviewed December 29, 2011

i love love love the food at Bua Thai. That is the only reason i keep going back. The service leaves much to be desired. Small family run business and the servers/owners dont understand customer service concepts or how to interact with graciousness.

“Terrific Thai!”
Reviewed December 9, 2011

We made an impulse decision to stop on a Friday evening. Fortunately, we were early so we had our choice of tables in this small restaurant. We REALLY appreciated the lack of music. It is so hard to find restaurants that don't have intrusive Muzak playing, so this was a treat. The waiter was exceptional and very friendly and accommodating, so I'm puzzled by some comments here about the service as our experience was great. We had the spicy basil chicken (Definately spicy but delicious ... They mentioned that this was medium spice, so I think we'll order the mild version next time). We also had the mixed vegetables and coconut rice and sticky rice, all of which nicely tempered the spice from the chicken. We'll be back soon and often!
