Dependable Thai food

I've eaten at Busara several times now, and have always been happy. The atmosphere is very pleasant: the room has lots of wood paneling and is more elaborately decorated than your average eatery. The hostess is welcoming, and the service is OK (although, when crowded, my servers could have been a... read more

Stopped here for lunch while visiting Bellingham. We had their lunch specials. The service was very friendly and efficient. The pot stickers are excellent! The serving portions were more than adequate and the food very tasty. I think overall the quality of their food has suffered slightly over the years, but it's still one of our favorite Thai restaurants. You... More

Ok, so their food is good, but I like my Thai with some spice. Not crazy hot, but spicy. I have asked for 7 stars here and still tasted like a 1 star meal. I would eat here more if I could get some spice.

Whenever I have the time while passing through Bellingham en route between Vancouver & Seattle, I always stop here. Food has always been delicious! They had me at their complimentary little salad starter with an absolutely delicious peanut dressing! And they're very conscientious about my sesame allergy. Everyone I've taken here has also loved it!

In a serene setting, Busara provides the best, fresh, tasty Thai food in Bellingham area. They can deal with gluten-free diets. Some wines are available to go with their dishes. Quite a large selection on the menu. Have been going there for years!

since moving to Bellingham 11 years ago we have, we have considered Busara our favorite restaurant. The food is always good and the price is right. Our whole family enjoys the cuisine.

Enjoyed several visits at this easy to find gem of a restaurant just off the I-5 WWU exit next to REI. Food is always fresh, service is friendly and I especially like being able to choose the spice level of my dish.

I'm afraid that I haven't ordered very deeply from their huge menu because I am totally addicted to their curry. I go here often with my belle-mere who also loves the curry. Their crispy duck and swimming rama are the orders for my family members and they rave about them. It's true that the service isn't always the best. I... More

We did a take out to our cozy hotel room so I have no idea what service is like, but the food we ordered were quite good. We ordered eggplant dish, pad see yeu and some spring rolls. All of it was good though little weak on spiciness. That is expected. If you are into spicy food, order 4+ stars.
