I've been to Busaba twice, and both times got the same thing - the lunch thali, which comes with a pot of tea, and then a starter and a main from a list. Both times I've had the spring rolls for starters and the chili beef with egg for the main. Obviously as it's marketed as a thali it all comes out at once.

Service here is also great. We always get seated relatively quickly...more

As a general Pad Thai lover, it is super delicious. Everyone I've gone with tends to love their food, and the atmosphere is perfect for a small or larger group, as you sit around large tables and share with other people but have...more
