We wanted to break away from seafood and we decided on Bua Thai...very quaint and the staff is great. Plenty of options to choose from.

I visit Maine every summer and always go to Bua Thai at least once. I ordered Mango Fried Rice last night, described as "Thai fried rice with egg, snow peas, onion, carrot, mango, cashed nut and scallion." There was a generous portion of rice, but...More

Thank you for your review. I just wanted to confirm that our seafood special consists of 3 shrimp, 1 mussel, 6 scallops and 6 of squid. This is our standard. It is impossible that we would give customer less.

We read a few reviews that said "great for take-out". It's also great for dine-in! They served up the best Pad Thai I've had, possibly ever. Their pan-fried dumplings and crab rangoons were also excellent. We'll eat there every visit to OOB! We even swung...More

This little place does a lot of business and was very pleasant for dining in. It's not gourmet Thai food, but well cooked and presented, staff very courteous and efficient.

Small restaurant in Old Orchard Beach, ME. Not very good looking from the outside, but the food is excellent. Very good service, and, did I mention, excellent food. Vegetable tempura and spicy pad thai with basil was delicious. Will definitely go back.
