Tried this restaurant for the first time in August and was impressed with the very tasty and flavourful dishes...we ordered a dish each and there was enough food for 3 people...We ordered two totally different dishes and were surprised at how different but GOOD both dishes were..Definitely worth a repeat visit and look forward to our next visit. For two... More

We also went there a year ago, and it's still good with the "hot" factored to your liking (just ask for sides of spices if some like it bland and others like it hotter); everything was fresh, flavorful, and the service timely and friendly. Great spot for Thai.

We had lunch here for the second time and our memories were correct, it was very good. I had Kao Pad, which is basically fried rice, and my wife had Swimming Rama. At lunch they are very snappy, they know many people are in a hurry.

When on that side of town, make sure to stop by. Right next to REI, which makes it that much more appealing.

Great restaurant. I love Bellingham, but never eat here. There's never been anywhere I wanted to go, as I'm a vegan, and Bellingham has never really been a vegan's destination. Until now, that is.... Delicious appetizers and pleasant service. The wine list isn't great, but the vegan options make up for that. They also have both brown and white rice... More

Eight of us had a family style meal at Busara's and I felt all eight dishes were very good. We enjoyed a wide variety from curry to soups and I was not disappointed by any of them. We sat in one of their "pits" and it did become a bit uncomfortable towards the end of the meal not being able... More

I don't get why the restaurant was full, I for one wouldn't bother to go back. We always start a Thai meal with Chicken Satay, that tells a lot about the restaurant. It was probably the most bland flavor and boring peanut sauce. We ordered 3 entrees, Cashew Chicken, Swimming Rama and Chicken Salad. The salad stated tender slices of... More

We just wanted something different and stopped here to get something to go. It was pretty busy but we got our food without waiting too long. It was very good.The staff was friendly and seemed attentive to all the tables. A nice atmosphere too.

My husband & I were recently traveling in Washington & spent a few days in the Bellingham area. We picked up some Thai food to-go from this establishment one evening. Everything was Delicious! It was very busy when we went in to order, but they gave us ice water & there was a comfortable area to wait. The restaurant looked... More
