The food was good. The service was really good. It was a bit on the louder side, so not so easy to have a quiet conversation with my husband. It's definitely a family restaurant. I'm not a person who can handle spicy food but I had a 5 star and survived so if you like it hot you will be... More

Impressed with the authenticity of flavours. Laab Guy Salad was spot on and their pad thai was as good as it gets ..dryer and like you get in Bangkok street vendors( no ketchup in sauce like some other places). Red Curry was the perfect finish. Ambiance is ok for a budget place like Busara.

Went to Busara for the first time last week. What a treat. Especially if you like duck. They have a couple of duck options. We got the crispy duck in ginger sauce and it was delicious! We also got the Double Delight with prawns and chicken, also very tasty. And of course Pad Thai, which was good. The only criticism... More

then you will love Busara. We hesitate to share this but when there is a lack of decent restaurants in the area, foodies have got to stick together! Explosions of lemon grass, Thai basil and a kick of spice (they ask how you would like it - your choice) hit your tastebuds in each bite. We visited with three other... More

Please don't tell anyone else, our best kept secret is no more. On our last visit we had a 20 minute wait. We have not found a dish we do not like, but our favourite's - the seafood with scallops and the duck, (also best pad thai, anywhere). We purposefully drive from British Columbia just to go for dinner here... More

Atmosphere and staff excellent -- FOOD WAS OUT OF THIS WORLD! My friend and I shared their chicken Thai salad and Orange Chicken special and this was the best food I 've EVER eaten -- and the price was $7.99! WOW! If I lived nearby I'd eat here more than once a week!

Service prompt and courteous. Food is good. Medium heat level is just enough to let you know it's there but not too hot for the ladies

This is the only Thai House I've found so far that offers Traditional Thai seating that we have yet to take advantage of. Gorgeous decor and atmosphere, however the staff are not the happiest, friendliest people and the food matches that. I've had very tasty, authentic Thai cuisine, but even at a spice level 4, it still tasted bland! My... More
