New Owners but same great menu. Fresh home made Thai food exceptional value. Great Ambiance . Thai cashew tofu stir fry with peanut Thai sauce made fresh to order with peppers, onions, cilantro, sprouts, corn, served with steamed rice is My favorite dish. Veggie Spring rolls made fresh with sweet chilli dipping sauce is Amazing. Try the Thai Iced Tea.

When visiting Nelson, BC be sure and dine in Busaba a fantastic Thai restaurant. This is but one of many great dining establishments in our city. People drive from near and far to sample the mixtures in cultural dining. Busabas is fresh with amazing flavours and great hosts.

Consistently good Thai food. Try the green curry chicken and seafood stir-fry. Reasonable prices. Excellent value. We've been eating at Busaba for years! Best of luck to old and new owners!

Excellent dishes... Vegetarian and gluten free options available... The dishes were flavourful and delicious. Make sure to order extra peanut sauce to drizzle over your Pad Thai and be prepared for a Red Curry that will tangle with your taste buds.
