    Calamari off the charts. Beef Red curry, flavors and spice great, needed a few more hours braising.

    Try to avoid busy hours. Long wait for everything. Food is nothing special, but at least edible. Shoreditch is best for. Vietnamese, not Thai.

    Ok great. Hands down best Thai on the planet. Traveling to London to eat Thai will be expensive, but worth it. Seriously, everything is so good. Calamari, amazing. Shrimp rice, boom. I'm ruined.

    There are seven branches of Busaba now, all serving honest Thai food - try the tom yam talay, prawn, squid and baby clam with vermicelli noodle in spicy sour soup (£6.70). Read more

    Disappointing. Boring, toned down food. Hardly authentic Thai. Average service and quite pricy for what you get. Ignore, there are better options in the area.

    Food's good if they've got what u want, a few things we asked 4were unavailable, there is zero flexibility if an ingredient is unwanted or unavailable & the manager was extremely rude when questioned!
