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.

Oh Wait, it wasn't a dream.
I was actually in a hot building sweating through the pores of my face and back due to lack of ventilation. I...more
Friend and I were in the area craving for Thai food and came in for an early dinner and really just beat the dinner rush at around 5pm. By the time we were seated there was a bit of a queue outside.
