Busaba Eathai is a casual dining venue where customers eat authentic modern fusion Thai dishes round communal tables. The modern interior with its square wooden tables and the washrooms with their ingenious basins all add to the atmosphere to make eating here an original experience.
The original Busaba Eathai opened in 1999 in London's Soho. Fifteen years later, there are still queues along the street every night of the week.
