Bua Thai is a restaurant in Malta’s Ellsworth Commons that provides Asian cuisine. Owner Lek Cameron said customers can expect authentic Thai food in an atmosphere that allows them to visit Thailand, if just for an hour or two.
“With our food and uniforms, people come in and can’t believe it. It is like visiting Thailand. You feel like you are not eating the food but visiting the place,” she said.
“I am really feeling so happy right now with things, we are doing quite well,” said Cameron. The restaurant has benefited from growing surrounding businesses like GlobalFoundries.
Cameron is committed to bringing authentic Thai food to the region. She also appreciates customer feedback and is happy to accommodate and customize dishes.
“If it’s not on the menu, we can still try to make a requested dish. We want people to experience just how good Thai food should be,” said Cameron.
She said they base their dishes on the freshest ingredients they can use. The feedback she receive proves that customers notice when they go the extra mile and search out fresh foods.
The restaurant seats up to 60 people, including a 12-person sushi bar. Cameron has six employees.
Bua Thai serves lunch and dinner. The most popular dishes are Thai curry, fried rice, sushi rolls, sashimi, fried noodles, and gluten free dishes, the owner said
We do very well at lunch and often have long lines. People like the food and come back,” said Cameron.
