Diner Reviews
  • "I really enjoyed dining at Bua. The service was fast and friendly and the atmosphere was nice, but still laid back. I was very pleased that their veggie dishes did not contain fish sauce. This may just be my new "go to" Thai place."

  • "The last few times I have been in I have noticed a shortage of Staff. This is unacceptable! The Server basically ignored us until we flagged her over. We saw her 3 times total in 2 hours. And the food took 20 plus minutes with a major separation in coarses. When we asked where the food was we were finally acknowledged by, "oh its coming sorry for the wait". Really???"

  • "Don't let the outside deter you from venturing inside. The food is very good and the service was very attentive. The Tangerine Chicken was very good as well as the tofu dish had just the right amount heat."

  • "Been here several times and consistently loved the food & service. This evening, we came w/another family and were hugely disappointed. The entrees were delivered in 2 shifts, the 1st shift were the curries which were delivered at 7:45. The 2nd shift were the noodle dishes, which were delivered at 8:05. We were never informed that there would be a delay in the delivery of the noodle dishes, so we waited to eat until those were delivered. And waited. Asked a waiter, still nothing. Waited. Then the noodles came. We were told that there was a back up on stir-fry and the hot plate would not have kept the curries warm. We pointed out that they didn't stay warm sitting on the table, and were told, "there's nothing I can do". So disappointing."

  • "The restaurant is in Town Brookhaven, which has a nice mix of casual dining and drinking places. The menu has a good variety of Thai dishes as well as a nice mix of sushi. Our dinner party had one Thai dish and one sushi dish and both were good. Portions are not as large as at some Thai restaurants, but the atmosphere is also a bit more upscale. They have a nice outdoor seating area on the sidewalk, although we opted for inside due to the warm weather. In cooler times, it would be nice for outdoor dining- although there were plenty who chose that option on this evening as well."

  • "Their Thai food is above average - ranging from reliably satisfying to excellent. Their drinks are hit or miss, sometimes being both tasty and creative, others being way too sweet. Service is usually fast and helpful, even on busy weekend dinners. "

  • "This is our neighborhood go-to! When our family from NY was visiting sort of last minute, we knew this was the place we wanted to take them for a late lunch and outdoor eating on a beautiful Saturday. Our martinis were perfect and the food is ALWAYS delicious. The chicken fried rice is always delicious and the spring roll appetizer is yummy!! Everyone's meal was delicious!"

  • "Come back for the Food and the rewards on iDine and points of Open Table but the service today was slow, yet the place was slow as well so I don't know what everyone was doing in the back. We wer one of two tables at lunch today and I brought some neighbors of mine to "brag" on the food and service at Bua. I did not see the owner but I'll bet with the goofing off going on the owner was not on premise"

  • "We have been here many times to eat. The food is wonderful but latey the portion sizes for the main entree have become smaller."

  • "A great choice for Thai and even a little sushi has become a very popular local favorite... A "sister" eatery to Ma~Li in the Highlands, Bua has found a following and as Town Brookhaven has exploded - so has the demand for a table at Bua. Use OpenTable to make sure you have a seat as they DO hold your table for you and the rules of OT (some places don't when they get busy) The food always has great presentation, good flavors and the "dependables" like Pad Thai and others are dependable. The lunch specials offer good pricing and the atmosphere is great....as the weather warms, the patio is more and more popular so give Bua a try!"

  • "This is by far the worst restaurant I have been to. This place needs to be taken off open table. The server was extremely rude and the food had a funny smell. No customer service and they just acted like customer service is a foreign language. I will never come to this place and recommend this place to any one."

  • "First try at this local restaurant. Check in was a but harried-almost an inconvenience for them. Got half way to table then seater left us to go back to verify where we were to go. Seated outside under tented area-away from inside scene where we would have preferred. Kind of banished to the second class area under a tent with heaters. Food was good, but i HATE it when the next course comes before the previous course is finished. Almost like the food is ready whether you are or not. Might try it again because the food was good. YMMV."

  • "I booked a surprise birthday dinner party (originally for 15) and BUA was the only place available. I'm very happy I did. The food was awesome (sushi rolls), and the host was extremely accommodating. The fried banana they brought out was free, but it was gone in 60 seconds and I would have paid up to $15 for it. Delicious."

  • "The food was excellent but the staff was running around like crazy and not super attentive. Food came out and I mentioned our drinks hadn't even been brought to us and then when she brought them i noticed the sushi she set down was not mine. So he ordered pad thai and ate it all by the time my sushi finally came out."

  • "First - they are local, fresh, and nice folks..... 2nd, they are on Open Table so you can always get a table! 3rd, They have Great lunch specials 4th, Great Flavors and presentation with good quality food at fair pricing.... What more could you ask for?!?!?! They are also on iDine (look into it) and that adds up to more $$$ for more dinners!"

  • "What disappointment the sushi was. I love the Brookhaven area and most of the restaurants are good, but this one was a miss. The "mixed drinks" are just straight shots, nothing to balance the alcohol. The Thai tea was overly sweet. But the biggest disappointment was the food, none of the fish was fresh and the way to cover that is to make it spicy. I will return to try the Thai due to everyone looked to be enjoying that."

  • "Only one person seemed to cover the entire restaurant from hosting, serving, cleaning. Our requests were delayed because of this. He covered many tables and wore multiple hats moving extremely fast and rushed. Didn't feel valued as a customer. The food was excellent. Service Just okay. I will return based on food and decor."

  • "Did not try the sushi but Bua served us overall the best Thai food we have had in Atlanta, and I have been to Nan, Surin, etc. Flavors were assertive - not at all shy - but beautifully balanced, distinct, and fresh. Papaya salad to start and sticky rice with mango to finish were both as good as I have had anywhere. Everything in between ranged from excellent to very good. I'll drive across town to try Bua again"
