“So Nice!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014

Thai food and western food prepared by the artistical hands of The owner, a real Thai chef with a lot of experience in Hotels Restaurant. He is a nice person that takes care a lot about the food and relations with customers. Here the food is delicious, good quality and with a beautiful presentation. The staff is really kind and friendly! The location is amazing with its wonderful view to Kamala Beach in the day and romantic in the night! I' ve been here more than ten times!

“The Bua Restaurant & Bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

Beautiful seaside restaurant overlooking Kamala Bay in Phuket. At the beginning of Millonaire's Row in Kamala, this place exudes class and ambiance at sensible prices. The food is impeccable & beautifully presented. Great range of European & Thai favorites cooked to perfection. Late afternoon or evening provides a wonderful time to soak up the sights over a great meal, accompanied by smooth and relaxing musicians. Considering the location & surrounding houses around $10-20 Million occupied by the who's who of the celebrity world, the prices here a very sensible & surprising. The quality here puts many of the corporate hotel restaurants to shame.
Definitely one to visit while in Phuket.

“Most lovely dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

I read the various reviews for restaurants in Kamala, and since we were at Cape Sienna and starved, we wandered down the street. Rockfish is also on the water and looked delicious, but we wanted some cheaper options. Bua was next door and we were all truly happy with our experience...little bread plate with the most amazing pesto dip(free), fast service on our drinks, and we had the fried spring rolls which were also quick to be delivered. Three of us had the Pad Thai (can't get enough of it here!) and the fourth had a noodle-seafood fish I can't pronounce. I asked for a bit of spice to add to my dish and the smiley waiter brought me a few options. Happy with the choices. Desserts good too. Food was 250 baht for main dishes. There are pricier options on steak and seafood, too. Note: two of us have varied nut allergies so I would be clear with the staff that you don't want nuts, as even the desserts include them. Overall: would totally return.
