Loved it!

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

Had I known this restaurant was in a strip mall off N. Samish we might never have gone, which would have been a terrible shame. We visited Bellingham for LinuxFest Northwest out at the Bellingham Technical College, and as we towed a trailer and had to stay where there was =pull-through parking and spent from 7:30am - 6pm at the...

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 bit more attentive). The menu has all of the... 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!
