Good all round experience, mellow setting with really tasty food. Do try the chicken wings and Rib eye steak. Reasonable prices.

“Can't go wrong”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

As far as cheap eats go in London, you cannot go wrong with Busaba.
The pat tai dishes are close to be authentic and the experience is kind of vibrant.

Yes, you are expected to leave as soon as possible and make space for the next group of people and you may need to put up with a noisy environment and a draft coming from the main door (constantly been opened) but at such low prices you really cannot complain.

A mid week visit may be a better choice that a super busy week end one.

“Good food. Canteen style seating.”
Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

(Westfield branch) very busy, and sat at a big table with other people. Probably not great if you want to sit down for a while. The fish curry and pad Thai were tasty. The guava cocktail is lovely.
