Street-style kind of vibe

Came with 3 friends. Was surprised that all the tables were big forcing you to sit with others around you. I like the idea of being on a table of 10 when you're only 4 and eating of plates in front of you almost right next to strangers trying to have a date or whatever. Concept is nice and I'm... read more

I have had a great experience in Busaba Eathai in Old Street, staff was superb, the manager Francesco was excellent and Patri taking our orders was quick and very helpful with everything we asked. I would definitely go again for sure and the food was nicely served and great taste! Good job!

We had a leaving do organised at Busaba - Old Street this week. The food was amazing, service was great and prep time for dishes was really well planned. Franchesco who was serving us made sure we were very comfortable and ensured we had a lovely time! I do recommend to try the calamari & lemongrass tea with honey.

My family and I visited a few days ago and as soon as I walked in I found myself pleasantly surprised for the great welcoming atmosphere. The service was impeccable and caring and the food very tasty. We loved most of all the Thai Calamari and the King Prawns noodles.

Nat was really friendly and warm! She also managed to help us cancel an order after we realized it wasn't what we want when it came. The food was also really nice, especially the satay and the whole sea bass! Would definitely come again!

We went early evening on a Saturday around 7pm and managed to get a table quickly. Service was fast and efficient, food was tasty and price was fair, particularly as I used their app for the first time which gave me £5 off the bill. Would go again even without the £5 discount.

My husband and I went for a Friday night dinner and the place was buzzing! We shared 3 starters- the "spring rolls" (looked cooked from frozen), the chicken lollipops (best thing on the menu), and the Thai tacos (a must get!). We eat got the Red Chili Beef Fillet and it was wonderfully spicy! The meat, while probably better than... More

Yesterday I was with a friend of mine after we had couple of drinks in east London close to Liverpool street and while we were talking and walking and we just find ourselves outside this very attractive restaurant. We've been kept from the dark lights and once inside the smell of the incense and the very warm environment convince us... More

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.
