The Bua is a very popular restaurant located at the southern end of Kamala Beach, on the west coast of Phuket Island. This Asian Fusion and Thai cuisine restaurant is named lotus (bua in Thai), probably the most important flower in Thailand. Run by Chef Suporn Purasakung, better-known as Jamie, The Bua is the kind of place at which you can eat a five-star dinner for a three-star price.
The long experience of Chef Jamie in many restaurants belonging to the upscale resorts scene of Phuket explains easily the trendiness of his restaurant. A good sign regarding the quality of the food served at The Bua, is that it’s frequented as much by local Thai people as it is by foreigners on holiday.
The Bua Restaurant Highlights
With a relaxing atmosphere, great views northward across Kamala Bay from the terrace, unobtrusive live music, and reasonable rates, The Bua offers the perfect venue to feast on finely cooked Thai and Asian Fusion specialties during your holiday in Phuket.
If you are not familiar with Asian food, ask the staff for their recommendations or simply try one of the classic Thai dishes such as pad Thai with shrimps, massaman beef curry, or stir-fried chicken with cashew nuts; you can’t go wrong. If you want to sample one of Chef Jamie’s specialities, the pomelo salad & seared tuna is unmissable. The service is friendly and prompt too.
