“Hmmm... We left after entre's. Need I say more?”

Sickly sweet food. Prompt service though. You're better off dumping a pile of sweet chilli sauce on an overlooked chicken breast at home than dining here...

“Good informal Thai food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

We visited Bai Bua on a Saturday night. The restaurant was busy which indicates it is popular with locals. The food was pretty good and well priced. Service is friendly. Seating a bit squishy but bearable for a restaurant that is cheap eats and not fine dining. Good entrees and the mains were big for Thai. We went home thinking we would happily go back for a casual meal, and that the takeaway is also an option. There was a steady queue for takeaway. All in all pretty good.

“Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

Nice restaurant with pleasant Thai decor. The food was very good with generous portions and the service was friendly and attentive. There are only three derserts available, avoid the sticky rice and Thai custard, rice was dry and the dish was uninteresting and bland.

“Get in my belly!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

I've tried Thai food all over the world and including Thailand and this stuff is right up with the authentic stuff you get in the mean streets of Bangkok! The service is fantastic, food is tasty and quick to the table from order. I've had both dine in and takeaway and I can't split them. The chicken satay and the sizzling chicken are the best in my view. I'll be back this weekend like most weekends!
