Lovely meal, very fresh and tasty, as a vegetarian I felt thoroughly spoilt with my pad thai jay and stir fried tofu and spinach with sticky rice. Would recommend to anyone. Very busy on the weekend so best to go early to avoid queuing.

Staff were great to accommodate six at 9:30pm on a Wednesday night. They didn't seem to know what a white wine spritzer is (we don't know if we can do that - say what?). Food was lovely although I had to send back our two portions of calamari as it was Luke warm. They then sent over three portions! I... More

Can't praise them enough. I've eaten here lots of times and it's like a slightly more authentic Wagamamas. Everything I've eaten here, I've absolutely loved. The vegetarian pad thai is one of my favourite dishes ever, and the pandan chicken. We got takeout from here recently too and forgot to ask about nut allergy information; we phoned up and they...

We had an event to go to that night so decided on Busaba at Old Street for a quick bite to eat, we have had Busaba at Wardour Street previously so we knew what to expect. We do love the sale and pepper Thai calamari, this time they seems a bit chewy and dry. We shared the massaman duck curry... More

I went to busaba the other week when my family and i were in London, i had not been there for a year or so. But the standard was still excellent. We all shared our dishes which were Pad thai, green chicken curry, grilled duck, and had rice and prawns crackers. The food was fantastic and Ahmet took care of... More

Thank you so much for making our day! the dinner was great. As usual the atmosphere was nice. Big thank you to all the staff, and our waiter Marius in particular. It was the first time he was serving us. He's not just professional but also a very sympathetic person. It's a great pleasure to have dinner in Busaba.

I had a great meal here with our friend who lives in the area, staff were very friendly and the food was tasty. We had a combination of noodles, tom kay soup, fresh vegetables, curry, and stir fried prawns and scallops. Will defnatly return next time we are in London, the space is beautiful and the food tasted great. Best... More

We were looking for a good girls night out and figured it would be a winner. This Busabai is the best one I tried so far. I will keep go there, even far from where I live now

Staying in Shoreditch

Neighborhood Profile
Shoreditch
The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well connected transportation links dotting its perimeter, along with an ever increasing variety of shops, hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighborhood. There's a lingering post-industrial grit about Shoreditch, but because it shares a border with “The City” financial district, the influence from its upscale neighbor can result in fascinating outcomes.
