       With more than 50 restaurants up and down Solano Avenue, what makes Bua Luang Thai Cuisine unique?


       Owner Joe Phoonpirom, he gained ten years of experience in Italian and American restaurants, but cooking Thai food connects him – and you - to his culinary roots. Joe's kitchen serves up the traditional and vibrant flavors of his home country, prepared with the freshest local ingredients. 


       *Bua Luang is FAMILY OWNED and you can sense that the moment you walk in. Niphon Phoonpirom opened this restaurant in 1990, and passed it on to his son, Joe. Joe’s family lives in Albany and raised two beautiful daughters, now in College. The staff is part of the family, too, with some having worked at Bua Luang for 20 years.  Bua Luang is their home, their family kitchen, and they enthusiastically share their passion and cuisine with you, the customers. They put time and effort into making each meal which is what makes it so special.


       Sit outside for a sunny lunch or bask by a heat lamp for a moonlit dinner. Amid the lively activity of Solano Avenue, savor the authentic Thai flavors.

       Order Take out or Delivery to enjoy our home cooking in the comfort of your own home.


       We at Bua Luang want to share our Thai culture with you through our savory cuisine. Welcome!
