Went with 5 friends on Friday night and we all had different mains, they were all delicious and went down very well with a cold Singha beer. Lovely staff that work very hard to keep everyone happy in a respectful manner.

The food was really good, but the service was really bad.. on a Sunday they weren't waiting for customers I guess. Within one hour we were back outside again. Disappointing..

Dined here for the first time on Saturday evening. The restaurant interior is quite small with not a great deal of space between tables. It was pretty full and a touch noisy though not sufficient to be off putting. Service was polite and efficient. The food, while not spectacular, was perfectly good and very reasonably priced so I'd happily revisit... More

I'll keep this simple: food is amazing and always very fresh, the staff are lovely. The place is small but cosy and it is easy to park nearby

The restaurant is quite cozy given its compact size but they do serve lovely authentic thai cusine. We had ordered the signature dishes including the so called weeping tiger, the spicy sizzling sirloin dish, and the tasty seabass overlaid with a special sweet thai sauce. Also the pad thai noodles are rather yummy, not sticky and over spiced. The price... More

We visited the Bua Thai for an evening meal and chose item B on the menu which gives a mixed starter and 3 dishes plus rice plus their special Salmon dish. Not only was this a superb tasty Thai meal but was very filling. Despite being very busy the service was fast efficient and friendly. Normally we enjoy their Lunch... More

Came here with my mate for a catch up dinner and the food was great. We ordered the set meal for 2 and there was loads of food for a reasonable price. They also do BYOB with a corkage fee so we brought a bottle with us but you can order wine there as well. Definitely one I'd recommend!

As usual the food was amazing- so tasty and the staff are amazing too!! I just love it here. It's really good value for money with authentic Thai food. They don't offer dessert but food is sooo delicious!

A group of us went to Bua Thai for a birthday dinner. We had a lovely evening. The food is tasty and reasonably priced. The service is also good. The only drawback is the size of the restaurant, which means it can feel crowded when full.

Reasonable value, reasonable food, reasonable service. We had a set menu - £16.50/head - mixed starter platter, chicken green curry, prawns, rice, noodles - all absolutely fine but lacking anything special in terms of flavour or presentation. You can bring your own wine - £4.50/bottle corkage - but they do sell wine too. Overall, nice enough but I'm sure there... More
