Sushi did not look or smell fresh. Very expensive for what you get. Beautiful and clean place to eat.

They seemed to have changed their sushi selections so that is nice to have new options. We had four different rolls and they were really good. The fresh rolls (basil and pork) are always a great pic, as is the calamari. Definitely recommend them. I won’t give them a high rating because they charge $$$ for Thai food, which is worth it for the taste, but they just don’t provide the level of service commensurate with the price. Our server worked hard, but there wasn’t enough waitstaff to work the place. We had dirty dishes sitting at our table for the majority of the time, no plates brought out when the sushi was brought out, and no wine or water glasses being refilled. I wouldn’t mind, but since we were a party of 6 (and parties of 5 or more are automatically charged a service fee) we paid gratuity despite the lackluster service. Again, our waitress did what she could but there should have been busboys or other waitstaff to help.

Authentic food and great location. Perfect for catching up with friends and sharing bites of really good food. Recommended for groups and dates alike - the food will be something people come to get over!

Service was a bit slow despite being fully staffed. Our waitress "A" was a little rude and talked back to my pregnant sister in law (NEVER argue with a pregnant lady!). Our waters came out a little delayed and no lemons/limes that she requested. When she asked again "can i have some lemon for my water" the waitress said "you have drinks here" basically saying we already have drinks - true but my sister really needed that lemon lol. Also, when my dad asked for his beer extra cold - she should have responded and said "i'll see what i can do, i'll try my best" instead she said "I can't control that, its the bar" something along those lines. Overall not the best service and kind of dampered our meal. On top of that they added 20% tip- no sir! Is that even legal in GA? We had a party of 5 and there was no sign anywhere. Normally we tip over that anyways but not when we hated the service.

Aside from the bad service, the food was good.

We enjoy Bua for its authentic Thai dishes and its ambiance. We had family visiting from out of town so we wanted to give her a special experience. From the appetizers to our entrees, everything was excellent. The whole fish entree (I forget its name but it is the entire fish with the meat pulled away) and the gingerine beef are outstanding. Of course, they also have an expansive sushi menu. Service was excellent as well.

Still really like bua, it does very and sometimes the dishes are not quite the same flavors or execution but overall it's a go to place for everything from casual dining to a business lunch. Really would love to see them in Fooda and hope one day they'll take a look at how that could help their reach to good solid customers

The service at this restaurant was absolutely awful! I would never go back there again. The food wasn't bad, but it was nothing special either. Not enough to keep me coming back. On a more positive note, there green tea was good.

Please not if u hav a large party they will not seat u until half of the party has arrived. I called to make a reservation & then the day of my reservation I personally called to confirm. I was not notified of this on either time I called about this policy. Other than that I do recommend this restaurant & I hav been several times the food & cocktails r amazing!

We visited BUA for our anniversary and were happy with the service but were highly disappointed in the flavorless food and portion sizes. This we did not expect of Thai food. There was nothing authentic about this place, I've had better from my local hole in the wall Thai restaurant. We ordered Sushi which tasted fresh but I've still had better; I order the combination fried rice and my husband had the Seafood Noodles which had more noodles than actual seafood. Our drinks were very small for $10 per drink. We spent a total of $83 for two people and with in 2 hours we were at Chili's! We visited because of the other reviews but were highly disappointed with our meals. We drove over 30 miles to get to this place and won't be returning.

The food was decent, but the service left a lot to be desired. We spent a lot of time waiting for someone to seat us. After waiting for a little bit, we seated ourselves at the bar. The bartender was nice, and she tried to make sure that we got everything in a reasonable amount of time. But, she was also serving other tables and seating other people, so she seem to have a lot more work to do then I'm a bartender. The food was good however, so that made up for the beginning wait, but I wouldn't go for a quick bite to eat.

The food was great! The place was cute! I loved the outdoor seating. The waiter were nice and attentive, not many customers were there though. The only complaint I have is that the music was vulgar. I wish they would have played clean music.

Always solid - BUA seems to continuously up their game. The presentation is beautiful and the food makes me so wish I was close enough to pick up take out once a week. Very unassuming place that is always lively. Not stuffy at all - great for a date or grabbing something before heading out.

Best Thai food, Very flavorful and tasty. Great creative cocktails,
The variety here is great with special fish from sushi bar. Don't be afraid to ask the staff for help. Highly recommended
Beautiful setting. Excellent service and attentive knowledgeable staff without being obnoxious. BUA really leaps above other Thai restaurants.

We eat at Bua Thai quite a lot and always have a good meal there. The service is good without being too fast which is how we like it. It is always busy and we like how we can either eat Thai or sushi. Definitely recommend!

We were there on Saturday evening so it was crawded but we got our table right away. Food is constantly good but service slow. Waited 15-20 min for someone to greet us. Looked like they were a little bit short on wait stuff. We live in the plaza so it is our place to go for casual dinner. Definitely will go back.

The food was amazing as always. The service left something to be desired on this busy Saturday night. It took quite a while for our waiter to come. When we did finally order, the main course was brought out before we had finished the sushi appetizers, so we were bogged down in plates. I think we will stick to the less busy weeknights at Bua - we really do love the place.
