Excellent food, gracious servers, friendly atmosphere and free parking. Our meals were served piping hot and the staff was more than patient with our questions and very attentive to our needs. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Good dumplings: thin dough surrounding generous pork & shrimp filling. Also good: Thai sausage, catfish. I asked for "Thai hot" and "very spicy" and it was. I'm definitely coming back.

Every time I go there, regardless of if I get take away or dine in, the food is great. The servers are always cheerful and kind. The Nam Tok beef is my favorite, their Tom Kha soup is amazing, and their curry and Pad Thai are on point. Many Thai restaurants I've been to either don't have mixed drinks or make me regret getting them. Bua Thai is the exception, all the drinks I've gotten there have been well made and enjoyable. Maybe try Thor's Hammer...it has a special place in my heart.

The food tasted ok but it was spendy. We got Tom yum soup and the grilled chicken with papaya salad and sticky rice. I was hoping for bone in chicken but it was just a chicken breast and maybe a boneless skinless thigh. Papaya salad could use a spicy kick. The flavors seemed to be catering to a more American palate. I would be interested in trying out one of their curry dishes if we come back.

We asked for it "Thai hot" and they delivered! Some of the better Thai food I've had in the triangle area. Will definitely be back.

Great food with reasonable prices and a nice staff. I haven't indulged as of yet but they have some pretty tasty looking desserts and a fairly well stocked bar, too.

Outstanding! My wife and I absolutely loved this place. The food was great, we had chicken satay, spring rolls, pad Thai chicken, and drunken noodles. The food was made very well, the chicken was tender, juicy, and had great flavor. The food was all made fresh and the restaurant was very clean. It was not stereotypically decorated, but beautiful. The staff was very kind and fast. Definitely will return. The price was not cheap, but what I would expect at a decent Thai restaurant. Thanks for the great experience.

Bua Thai, I enjoy their food. The way they make the (beef noodle soup) is similar to how my Cambodian friend's make. It's like being back with them when I enjoy this soup. The atmosphere is nice, cool most times. The waiters are kind. I enjoy my visits here for dinner with my friends in this area. Good place to reconnect with family, friends and great for business meetings too.

The soft-shell crabs tasted amazing! It was so relaxing and tropical-like to sit outside and watch sunset at summer dusk.

The best Thai food in Durham/Raleigh/Chapel Hill. Best servers, sweet as can be and the best spring rolls that I've ever had. NO EXAGGERATION. You will not be disappointed at all!

It's an amazing Thai place and their food is really tasty. They can improve on the Thai tea and quantity. All my colleagues go there atleast once a week. They also of alcoholic drinks which I didn't try.

THE Thai Place in Durham.
- Large portions.
- Amazing pad thai and basil fried rice.
- Spicy dishes do not disappoint. "Thai hot" is legitimately stupid hot.
- Good variety but not overwhelming menu.
- Not too crowded.
Overall, one of the best restaurants in the area.

I had lunch there for the first time and the food was amazingly good! I would definitely want to go back. Oh make sure to try the in-house Salad along with dressing!

This place is a great little gem! My wife loves the papaya salad (just the right amount of heat) and the drunken noodles are a staple of mine. Great beer specials too and always super friendly service!! Thanks guys!

Picked up some carryout from here and it was FANTASTIC. Best pad Thai and Panang curry I’ve had since visiting Thailand a few years ago. Been coming here for the past few years since they opened, and it still has the “group of friends who love food and want to share it with the community” feel as it always had. The online ordering website is easy to use and gives you all the information and options you need.
