When I used to live in Allston, I loved visitng Dok Bua, not just for the food, but also the quirky, fun atmosphere. The restaurant offers a plethora of standard thai dishes as well as other, more exotic specials such as curried salmon. Along with the regular menu, they offer a "photo album" filled with pictures of the different entrees, which I always thought was a helpful and creative idea. I loved their specials that come with a choice of soup and egg rolls. The red curry and tom yum soup were also always great! Better yet, their prices weren't quite on par with the more expensive restaurants and the service was always fast and friendly.
