“Great Thai Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

Lively popular place both for lunch & dinner. The simple bench seating around large square tables can mean that couples can end up sharing with three or four others. They don’t seem to take booking for the main dining area so you have to take pot luck on where you are going to sit. The menu is simple and relatively short but the range of food is substation, although all basically Thai. It is a good place to go with a group of friends and share a range of dishes. The staff are very helpful when making your choices and direct you in the direction of your tastes. Do try the pandan chicken, chicken wrapped in banana leaves. When of the best Thai restaurants in London.

“Scrumptious!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

Scrumptious Thai food, probably one of the best Thai meals i've had. A huge advantage for larger parties is the private dining room!

“Delicious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

The food at Busaba is delicious. It differs from many Thai restaurants in providing unusual dishes which aren't killed by heaps of chilli. Especially good is the crispy lamb salad but everything was full of subtle flavours. I didn't know Thai food could be so delicate. Good value for London prices.
