Everything we ate was fantastic and the service was great! Highly recommend the quail eggs, crispy squid, dates and bacon, and the duck.

We frequent Boda for the great bar, and fantastic appetizers. The quail eggs, Brussel Sprouts and satays are all among the best thai dishes in the city. Their food isn't designed for take-out, so dining in is the only option, and it doesn't disappoint. The...More

We got there just before 6 and even then it was a 30 minute wait. Once you have eaten there you understand why people wait. The crispy squid was very good as was the Thai Chili Chicken with squid. Max was our waiter and he...More

My husband and I had an enjoyable meal at this establishment, which is known for its tapas (very small portions) and being open till almost 1 a.m., so a good place to go after a show, etc. though we were here for dinner before a...More

Based on one meal, one dish, I had to give this place five stars. I had the daily soup--a Thai seafood concoction that had an amazing broth. I am extrapolating from that to conclude that most things on the menu must be at least pretty...More
