    Amazing thai food. loved it ! I tried 5 plates (chicken, squid & prawns) and they were all great and most of them spicy. I can say that is one of the most quality foods you can eat in London.

    Love this place, there are several branches near by. Order chicken satay, pandan chicken, goong tohd, pad Thai, matchstick chicken and coconut rice.

    The food is great, especially Jungle Chicken and Mussaman duck curries, but don't ask for ginger tea because they use something like a potato instead of ginger in the tea.

    The Thai calamari and chicken wings dishes are exceptional! If you arrive in raining weather, they give you a cute plastic bag to hold you wet umbrella!

    Staff are very good and friendly, food is good too. Food can be on the spicy side but that's not a bad thing. Child/kid friendly

    Calamari is to die for. U can pass up the bad fried chicken. The prawn curry is good... Although its in total only 3 prawns!!!!! Ridiculous!!!

    Thai calamari is to die for! And "koh samui" is delicious, if you like tropical fruit juice.
  • Ged C.
    Go for small plates rather than main dishes. Surprisingly peaceful (though still busy) for a restaurant that close to Leicester Square

    Make sure you have time to have dinner here. The food is tasty and good value but it takes way too long. More than 20 minutes to just pay!!

    It's a shame that Busaba like to create an artificial queue at the doorway. That plus slow service is very frustrating when there are lots of empty tables and you're on a bolt to get to the theatre.
