Always on the search for great pad Thai and Andaman curry. Here is a tasty entry in that search. Wonderfully robust curry with solid pad Thai. I also love you can get brown rice. Great eats

Was really expecting something terrific based on the reviews, and it was underwhelming. The tom yum koong soup was good, but not great. The pad thai was "meh." The service was...good enough? Nothing will be bad here, but nothing was notably good either. Not a "bad" option if you are in this neighborhood.

Dok Bua delivers lunches to my office complex via the Peach Labs service. The Chicken Pad Thai is outstanding. Delicately flavored, with a nice hot sauce on the side and a very generous portion. One of my favorites

This is the Thai place like I like them: classic dishes, spicy touch and good size portions. The curry was spicy and delicious. And our waitress? She was the sweetest! So happy that we liked our food, funny but unobtrusive. Will visit again!

An unpretentious restaurant where you can unwind and talk and laugh with friends. Excellent food, spicy, bold flavors, beautiful presentation. The curries were authentic in flavor, the veges were crunchy and the portions were generous. The crispy fish was indeed crispy and the sauces are delicious. Thai iced coffee and tea were superb. Can't recommend this restaurant enough. It has... More

This was my first time at this restaurant. We started our meal with the Thai spring rolls which were very goo and served piping hot and very crispy. . My friend wanted the fried chicken wings which she seemed to enjoy, but I found them nothing special and would have preferred having the chicken satay. I had not even taken... More
