Tried this place for lunch. It was good but nothing special. Would eat there again but probably won’t be craving a return visit. Dishes were a bit too spicy.

Server was not very attentive and slow. Took a while to get our drinks and even longer to take our food order. Very disappointed in the service. Maybe it was a bad day.

I've been going to BUA for years and have never had a bad experience. Everything I've tried has been delicious. The ginger chicken is one of my favorites. My only problem is I want to order just about everything on the menu and have a tough time making a decision.

I loved visiting here this is the first Thai restaurant in Brookhaven area I have ever visited. It was great to see how many open variety sushi and Thai food selection they have available on their menus. Great spot with friendly staffs and didn't have a long wait since I made reservations beforehand. I had a great time! Will definitely be back.

I love this restaurant, but this time the salmon was overcooked and did not taste as good as it usually does. Of course, the curry sauce is so amazingly delicious I could cover the salmon. It was a Sunday night, so I was too chilled out to bother complaining about it.

The calamari was average with breading that was a bit chunky. The larb chicken was grainy. It had a weird “mouth feel” but was tasty. The sushi rolls were above average. And the restaurant has a nice decor that feels welcoming.

This is my second time at BUA Thai and normally my overall experience is always great. However, tonight my overall experience was not great due to the temperature in the restaurant . It was so hot in the restaurant other customers were complaining and asking their server to have management to adjust the temperature. I was extremely uncomfortable and was SWEATING throughout my meal that I couldn’t enjoy my glass of wine .

I paid for a glass of wine that I couldn’t enjoy!!! I left a full glass of wine on the table.😡

I hope on my next visit the temperature will be suitable for dining.

I can not say enough outstanding things about this restaurant. From the time we walked in the door, until the time we left, we had nothing but superb service and food! It all started with the tasty fried wings and let's not forget my Beef Gingerine with Garlic Rice! I thought I was in Heaven! I'm dying to get back ASAP.

Thanks for the marvelous experience

After reading recent reviews, I thought I was the only one who can conclude that Bua has definitely slipped into mediocrity. I am now absolutely going to pass on the Sushi. They just can't seem to get it right. It's not good here, and Atlanta has so many other options that are very good, one being right down the street in Brookhaven. The kitchen is still very good, and my husband's rice dish was fantastic!! Stick with the Thai menu and you will be fine.

Very slow service, they are highly understaffed for it to be a Monday without them being even close to full and I had to waive down the staff for service. However Tom Kha soup is good. Had better Pad Thai.

Bua is consistently the best Thai place I have been, and they cover a wide range of items, not just Thai food. Their specials are always interesting and are plated beautifully. This last trip I had the lamb for the first time and it was spectacular!! I cannot recommend Bua more highly

We stuck to the Thai dishes. Nice touches to traditional Thai favorites like crisping the basil leaves instead of letting them go soggy in sauce. Very reasonable prices for lunch.

We were disappointed tonight and all the dishes that we had, it wasn't that they weren't okay... They just weren't what we have always expected from this restaurant. We will be heading to Ma~Li on Wednesday night just to go back to the site where we know it all started and is a much stronger and consistent restaurant
Bua needs to get things back on track....it's closer to us but we will continue to drive all the way over to Ma~Li because it's so much better

Our group had Thai Fresh Rolls, Pik King Pork, Panang Chicken, Pad Thai, and another dish I can't remember. All of us were completely satisfied with our food, both taste and presentation. The ambiance was good, if just a little noisy. This place is somewhat more expensive than the typical Thai restaurant around town. On the restaurant menu the Pik King Pork is $2 more than shown in the online menu. There may be other discrepancies.
