Im not sure if I am reviewing for the same restaurant since I dont speak Thai. My friends and I ate at BUA (see pics) to double check I googled BUA and Lotus came out seemed like the same place from the outside pics. Anyways,...the BUA we ate at was along the MRT line and near Phat Pong. It looked very small but modern in a not snooty way. The staff was very attentive and we liked the ambiance and feel of the restaurant. It was not cheap like the food stalls along the street, which I also enjoyed, street food is really the best in Thailand. The food here was really amazing. Im sorry but I can not tell you what I ordered as I dont speak Thai, I just pointed out what I wanted and took pics. The staple Pad Thai was very beautifully presented tasted good too! I also enjoyed the pineapple fried rice, it was not too sweet which I prefer. What surprised me was this appetizer with fried cup like "dumpling wrap" where you put the "salad" type mixture of vegetables. It was very very very good! The servings were small, I would suggest you order what you want to try and share it, so you can taste their creations. I also enjoyed the Tom Yum soup, it was served beautifully in this petite chafing dish to keep it hot.More

Went for an early dinner on a Thursday. I had Green Curry Chicken with Rice Noodles, it was very good. A bit expensive for Thai food but it was yummy.

I had been living in SV City since 14 years, Bua was the nearest restaurant. I did not acknowledge it till now. Being a vegetarian it is really easy and convenient to go and eat in Bua restaurant. It has delicious and fresh food and...great service , the food comes a little slow. Overall this restaurant has never disappointed me in taste, freshness and quality. Hope to get this service in future.More

Enjoyed the tasty food, especially the fish curry paste in banana leaf, BBQ (smoked) pork ribs, fresh fried fish and sautéed winter melon shoots for 800 bht. Not large portions but good food.

We rate the food highly here; barbecued pork ribs were especially good. Red duck curry was notable. Fish maw soup thick with maw and mushrooms was wholesome and memorable. Mango with sticky rice was pleasantly aromatic and most palatable. Thai Jasmine rice for all at...the table. And the company of great friends crowned it as the most meaningful night out.More

We had a memorable wedding at Bua Restaurant on the 02/04/16. The ceremony starts around 7am and by the time we reached, everything were well prepared. Our guests loves the food and the ambience. The manager, khun kunakhon was attentive and ensure everything was in...order.. Before the wedding, we went to taste the food and the food which they serves daily were great as well. Overall, the food and services were 5 stars...More

We bumped into this restaurant on the river. Nice atmosphere and delicious Thai cuisine. Even our 5 years old daughter enjoyed it. I would recommend this restaurant. price wise is quite cheap, for a restaurant. The menu has some dishes pictured, which I find quite...helpful especially as the staff doesn't speak good English.More

My friends and I walked into this restaurant for supper and a few drinks. The prices were great and the drinks included mai thai's, margaritas, bloody mary's, beer, etc. I had the tom yum soup, which comes in a steel pot, and it was delicious!...I also had the mango sticky rice for dessert. Everyone in our group enjoyed their drinks and their food. The atmosphere of the restaurant was great as well. I would definitely recommend!More
