“Enjoyable Thai food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Quite noisy. Efficient service. I had the cod fillet, Thai garlic, krachai, lime leaf and chilli which was spicy and very good. My other half had the pad Thai which she enjoyed but would have preferred the tofu to have been left out as it was tough and added nothing to the dish. First time in a Busaba Eathai but would go again to one of their branches.

“Best place for Thai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Came in for dinner with my girlfriend and couldn't be happier. Quick and smooth service followed by delicious food. Calamari a must have :) also try papaya slad or ginnger beef. Definitely my favourite Thai place in London.

“Good food, great concept, service needs to try harder”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

The big tables to share either with big groups or even have the chance to meet new people is a good concept. The food is of a high quality, you can pretty much guarantee you'll eat well.

“Papaya salad and calamari A+”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

Service is terrible but the food was great.

Seating is quirky and friendly and it generally feels good.

“It was okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

I don't get the hype about this place. I came here with a couple of friends and had thai green curry and squid. The squid was really nice and the curry was okay.
