    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.

    Damn I love the fried chicken they serve, not spicy but with a wonderfully zesty sauce; add brown rice for a perfectly tasty meal.

    Get the char-grilled duck with crab&egg rice, calamari as a starter: it's absolutely awesome! And they have plenty of delicious healthy juices and virgin cocktails.

    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

    The lamb curry is great also The pad thai menu is very flavourful, very good ingredients—all with comfortable interiors and also design heads may notice Norths touch on the place

    When we visited, service was speedy but I heard it gets hectic at busier times and you may have to queue for a table. The food itself was pleasant though nothing amazing - more reliable than good.

    The goong tohd prawns with lime and chilli sauce are delicious if you're in for a side with a bite. Staff is friendly but slow, so be ready to wait.

    Delicious! The smoked mushroom with butternut was perfect, and the coconut carrot juice is a must have. Pure bliss.

    Don't let them upsell you! Our server asked us if we wanted shrimp chips in the same way an American server would ask if we want complimentary bread. She did this again and we fell for it. Not cool.

    Very good and not too expensive. Try the green curry and the Pat Thai very similar to the original one!

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

    Southern fish curry. No doubt the best thing on the menu. add some crab meat fried rice. DO IT!

    Ask about the spice ratio. If they tell that your choice very spicy, they really mean it.

    £15.45 for Mussaman duck curry & sticky rice takeaway!? Got about 1/2 a breast in brown gravy and the sticky rice is just a solid lump of jasmine rice with no vegetables, save 2 potato wedges. Avoid!!

    Pad thai jay was delicious enough to justify the hour long wait. I'll be back, at a quieter time of day

    Had a delivery from this place quite late last night - the flavours were nice but the chicken was very fatty and gristly. Shame.
