Bua Thai 416-849-0344 www.buathai.ca Open 7 days a week
I’m always looking for a new Thai place to try and since this one is just down the street from me I decided to give it a go. This west end location is the second Bua Thai, a family run business originally from Bangkok, Thailand.
Mango salad is outstanding, topped with minced chicken, cashews and peanuts. Unripe mangoes give the salad a crunchy sour texture, and when mixed with coriander, sweet onions and mint provide unbelievably fresh taste. Vegetarian spring rolls are fried to a golden brown tasting crisp, light and garlicky, more than most Thai restaurants. Lemongrass soup is nice but needs salt. Spicy hot green curry is creamy with a long lasting bite that lingers.
Bua Thai is charming and serves flavourful zesty dishes.
