    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.

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

    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.

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

    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

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

    Steht ihr auf langweiliges Curry mit Hünchen minderer Qualität und versalzenen Papaya Salat? Dann unbedingt vorbeischauen. Aber vielleicht steht ihr ja schon vorher auf, da keine Bedienung kommt.
