We needed a quick meal for visitors and ordered take out from Bua Thai. It took 20 minutes to get 3 entrees and one chicken satay, on this mid June day. We noticed several take out bags waiting to be picked up and a few tables occupied. For this small kitchen expect longer wait during peak season,. (We have encountered... More

I love Bua Thia as a quick, consistently very "good" take-out, local option. I've never eaten in, and would not be opposed to it, but have found it to be a reliable take-out and delivery option. Another review rated Bua Thia low because it "wasn't the best Thia food" they had ever had. I've eaten Thia across the country and... More

I had been craving Good Thai food. I happen to be in Saco and looked up Thai places through Trip Advisor and Bua Thai popped up, the reviews were good and I was only 2 miles away: win/win. It is a quaint little restaurant with interesting decor. The service was quick and the food was excellent!!! It was very laid... More

The place is nothing to look at from the outside, but you'll be impressed by the service and the inside, really cute place to go, inexpensive, friendly, and awesome food. You must try.

No reservations at the first, no babies at the second and we stumbled upon this gem. All tasty and fresh. Cooked to order. The only weak point was the fresh spring rolls. A little light on the flavor but still the whole dinner was excellent.

Went there for first time and I have to say I was very disappointed. Pad Thai noodles were very soggy. Saw them pull noodles out of a container that was sitting on the counter. For a Thai restaurant, I expected fresh and delicious but got neither. The outside of the restaurant was a dump. The inside was slightly better and... More

After spending the day sightseeing with my husband and grown daughter we wanted something different for lunch from the usual offerings in a beach town. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Bua Thai. The place is very cute inside, staff was very friendly and the food delicious - a fantastic value too - $6 and $7 generously portioned lunch specials.... More

We had dinner here while visiting the OOB area. The food and service here were wonderful. I would make a point of eating here again when in the area.

A small group of us had to be in OOB for a memorial service and we decided to head toward the beach for some food and drink. Of course, this being that weird time of year where so many places begin to close, we couldn't find anything that wasn't fried food so I did a quick search on Trip Advisor... More
