I ordered the Sriracha ho fun noodles and it was extremely salty. I did not finish the dish and it left me so thirsty! I would never go here again.

Great meal, plenty of choice and very helpful staff. Lovely cocktails, however some confusion over the 2 for 1 offer so make sure you check your bill before paying!

I love this place, mostly because I have not been able to find Thai Roti bread anywhere else. But the foot is fresh and tasty. Sometimes overpriced, particularity for mains, but the service is great.

We had our best meal so far at Busaba Kingston, we ordered mainly from the Thai newyear specials menu and the food was excellent. It was quite an expensive meal but good value considering how good the food was.

Food was mediocre, not spicy enough or hot enough in temperature. The service wasn't rude but wasn't friendly and was slow, every time we needed something we had to get up and get the attention of the waiting staff. Didn't crack a mile once. Wouldn't...More
