“Top Class Royal Thai Food”
Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant served up the best food I have had in three visits to Bangkok. We opted for one of the set menus, which are great value for the quality of food they provide. Service was friendly and efficient.

“Fantastic experience at reasonable prices”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

End of January, whilst in Bangkok, had dinner in the Bussaracum. It was, after an earlier visit in 2009 (at another location), our second visit to the restaurant.
The restaurant moved about a year ago to its new location and it is much more easy to find and to access now than it used to be. It is now also located in a very nice colonial building only a small walk away from the Surasak BTS station (take exit 3).
Reception was very friendly and professional. The restaurant itself was very nicely decorated with great lighting.
Food was outstanding, from the starters over the main plates to the desserts. The cocktails were very nice too.
I found it to be a great price quality experience, particularly in view of the quality of the food we got.

“Quiet, excellent food”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

More imaginative Thai food than most places. Quiet - seems almost like a house in the country! Very different from bustling, noisy places.

“An old friend comes to life again”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

I was in Bangkok for the first time in the late eighties/early nineties. I then went to a restaurant named Bussaracum. After that, I have been to Bangkok many times but have never been able to find it again. I have searched the yellow pages asked taxi drivers, hotel staff, you name it.
I had now given up and stayed at a hotel at Sathorn and was heading from there to another restaurant when I saw a sign... Yes, my old friend is back!!!
I am happy to say that the food is just as good as it used to be, simply probably the best you can get in terms of Thai food. The staaf is very attentive and also helps you to compose a set so that every flavour matches each others.
Yes, it is expensive, count on paying at least three or four times compared to a "normal" thai restaurant in Bangkok, but for western standards it is still cheap. And worth every baht for a splurge out.
Go there!!!

“Romantic dinner”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

We spent our last dinner in Bangkok at Bussaracum and we were really impressed about the customer service and quality food, after 3 days of very poor experiences.

Go check it out!
