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.

The food was average with prices to be expected for the area. If you want authentic Thai food look elsewhere and boy are there plenty of other/better Thai options in London! Service was a little slow but the food came out really fast.more
Busaba Eathai Soho is situated right in the centre of Covent Garden and naturally had a long queue outside so it was helpful that we had a reservation.
All of the tables were square and could fit 12 diners but they insisted on a strange seating plan because of another reservation which meant that I was on a limb and separate from the rest of my group. It also meant that I was ignored by the...more
