About Boo's Kitchen

Bringing families together through food is the aim of Woolloongabba restaurant Boo’s Kitchen on Annerley Road. With a focus on Northern Thai and Isan cuisine, this bright and breezy eatery has an abundance of natural light from a glass frontage, or dine alfresco under market umbrellas and soak up the sun. Boo’s extensive menu dishes up a collection of her favourites, including starters like succulent grilled chicken skewers, served with housemade satay sauce; or perhaps deep-fried crab and prawn net rolls and plum sauce. Delve into mains of garlic pepper prawns, with seasonal vegetables and jasmine rice; or Chef’s special Thai duck curry, lychee, pineapple and basil, best enjoyed with a glass of Pinot Noir. Finish sweetly with warm chocolate cake, vanilla ice cream and raspberry compote.

A few words from Boo's Kitchen

A little bit about myself. My given name is Bussakorn but with my families love of seafood the nicknamed me Boo which means Crab in Thai !! This of course extended to my little sister who was nicknamed Goong - Prawns in Thai. I still wonder whether it was just fun or their true love of seafood !! Well, my brother and I followed in my mum's footsteps with me starting this restaurant to share my love of food and my brother who is a professional chef,

I grew up in a little village called Puvieng in the North Eastern part of Thailand, called Isan with two brothers and a sister. My father was a rice farmer and my mum sold home made food from a kitchen set up in front of our house. I started very young preparing all the ingredients for my mum to cook before I left for school and when I came back in the afternoons. watching and helping my mum cook gave a me a solid foundation on the Isan, Laos and Thai flavours.

We sat as a family on a mat on the floor with a variety of dishes cooked by my mum, my brother and myself, picking at the sticky rice with our hands and savouring the food. Inevitably, we would be joined by our extended family or friends who were always welcome to share our meals. An Isan meal is all about the coming together of families sharing their food while combining the various flavours from the array of dishes that can be had with sticky rice, jasmine rice or noodles.

With summer coming close and my love of seafood, I have introduced a great fresh Thai Prawn Salad and a Barramundi Salad with fresh herbs and a lemongrass seasoning that is perfect for a summer afternoon or evening...

However, you should try my other favorites such as the Isan Duck Salad (Laab) that is made with premium tender duck and using a all time favorite recipe or indulge in a Papaya Salad Platter, a very original Isan dish that I grew up with or the Crying Tiger or Seua Rong Hai that I specifically have made with tender Wagyu steak...

Simply brilliant! Food is amazing, Boo and her team are really lovely.
We have been going to Boo's Kitchen since it opened and they have also catered a few events for us (next door at the Princess Theatre). The food is amazing, the beef mussaman is the best I have ever had! Lovely staff, Boo and Gerard are very kind and generous people. We always feel right at home when we visit there.


Fabulous food and service!
So much more than your basic Thai restaurant. There is always something new and wonderful to taste.
