“Bland beyond belief.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012 via mobile

My husband & I chose Bus Thai based on reviews and easy locale. We were severely disappointed in the entire experience. Bland is the kindest word I can find to describe one of the worse Thai meals I have ever eaten. Soggy breaded duck basil, tasteless Tom yum and unremarkable service. I regretted our choice!
Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere for your Thai fix.

Everything is delicious and made fresh

“Great Thai Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

The newly renovated restaurant is welcoming and pleasant. The service was flawless and the food absolutely delicious. We had the (Tom Yum) Lemon Grass Soup, very very good. I ordered a stir fry with shrimp and my husband ordered a mango & chicken dish. The portions were just right and the quality of the food was superb.

“Location in Etobicoke is amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2012

We went to Bua Thai for a bday dinner with a couple of friends. The atmosphere is casual but the food is great.
The portions were huge and one is enough to get stuffed. We ordered pad thai, seafood thai, pad khee mao and mango nut chicken. All dishes were delicious , also ask for pad khee mao not to spicy( it comes really hot)
The dishes are approximately $10 each, but makes you full. We also ordered a bottle of jackson triggs which wasnt overpriced like they are always in restaurants.

I will definitely come there at least to try fried banana with honey:))
Recommend it deff..it's located at royal york and queensway. No reservations are necessary.

Try the lemongrass fish. Ignore the decor.
