    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

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

    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.

    Food is good but service is just terrible. They spilled our beers on us and they won't change us the table nor offer us to heat up our order. We had a 50% discount though

    Worst service, there was a mistake on our bill and a friend paid more than she should have and they didn't refund her. Quality isn't worth the price, won't come back.

    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!
