Very nice ambience (except for the smoking incense). We eat Thai every week and this food was good, but the portions were very small for what they are charging. This is the first time I've left a Thai restaurant still hungry so be prepared to order more food than you normally would at a Thai restaurant.

For my work leaving do dinner, I decided to go to Busaba Eathai Chelsea on Kings road and as always on a Friday it was heaving queues of people but to my surprise like before, the wait was only minimal, it felt like about 5 minutes.

I'll admit I've been hugely unfair to Busaba over the years. Perhaps it's because I was wholly unimpressed when I went about 12 years ago, or perhaps because I'm mistrustful of people raving about it. Whatever it is, I've been unfair. As a whole package, they're nice places. I like the feel of the place and it turns out the food has improved quite a bit since that one trip years ago.
Good food, reasonable prices, quick service and nice (although can be noisy) atmosphere. My safe bet for a simple and affordable meal with friends. Only is you should be prepared to wait at peak times - up to an hour. Otherwise good place to go.more
