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.

Great service, no ridiculous wait times, the recommendations are spot on. Skip the Mango Lassi though - it tastes like mango juice mixed with yogurt! Go for the house specialty Pad Thai and the fried rice is top notch too. A place in Central London that won't break the bank, and will also fill you up - win-win!more
I had a dream that I was in a hot room, sitting on a bench and being served by a Eastern European waitress and my drink order taken from a Thai gentleman... If only there was someone else fanning me with leaves, I would have thought that I was royalty.
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
I have been here a few times, the food is pretty good (I like their use of more exotic Thai ingredients), however I often find the serving sizes a bit on the small side and the service a bit slow.
Try the calamari starter.more
