The food was not a stand out. The service started out ok but delivering the food to the table became quite a issue. Food was sitting under spotlight getting cold but not being served. Overall just a ok food night.

We went with friends with kids and Busara worked very well for us. We tried the fried rice, the Pad Thai, and the Panang curry and everyone, including the kids were happy.

Feasting in Thailand, the dishes there are spicier and of course tastier. Here, the dishes were sweet, too sweet, not spicy or hot at all or salty. I was very disappointed that Papaya Salad a common dish was not on the menu. My husband ordered a calamari appetizer and it was pasty, maybe it wasn't cooked long enough, plus the... More

I was treated to dinner at Busara some time back and enjoyed the décor, lighting and service. The food was just ok. I haven't been back.

I have eaten at Busara several times and each time, I have found the food I chose to be quite good. The service is good and pleasant, but the room itself is rather "cool" and not cozy, especially was the colder weather blows in outside. It's in a rather difficult corner of a mall area, so hard to find initially,... More

The food was very good and priced fairly. The also had a delicious warm black rice (yes...rice...not ice) cream dessert that was awesome. The place was nice inside. The only reason why I did not give 5 stars was because I went on a weeknight and the service was slow, and they managed to bring me the wrong meal resulting... More

This was a pleasant surprise . . . we were in town for just a couple of days and were very grateful to have at least one exceptional meal. We happened upon this place by accident but found it to be one of the best Thai restaurants we've ever been to.

Located right next to an REI and Dominos Pizza….I'm still trying to figure out that combination….Busara serves up very tasty curries and noodle dishes. Service was fast and friendly and portions were nicely sized and reasonably priced. We went early on a Wednesday evening and almost every table was taken. Would definitely recommend if you are at that end of... More
