    Pad Thai and Thai Calamari are among the best.

    I've eaten at various Busaba Eathais and the food is usually good. Here the vegetarian pumpkin pea green curry was REALLY good. Their pad thai was just fine, nothing incredible but also satisfies any pad thai craving you may be experiencing. My dad's tom yang goong was lovely at first but got more bitter/watery over time. Cocktails were lovely - but two of us ordered Bangkok Mojitos and one ended up a lot sweeter than the other. The guava collins is always a great option. Unfortunately we were looking forward to the papaya salad - we had asked for it as vegetarian but it came with prawns. The staff were lovely about this and offered to bring us a new one. Also the coconut rice is heavenly. Definitely a great place as an alternative casual lunch/dinner option.

    The Calamari at this place is the best I have had so far! So good here, you must order it!! The service was slow and the app which we paid with (you can get £5 off the first time you pay with the app) didn't work properly so it took ages for us to pay and leave. The staff were kind and it had nice decor. I like the way you can sit at the same table as other people at this restaurant. Also, I do not recommend the chicken wings (starter). Tasteless and dry (according to my sister who ordered it).

    Pretty decent green curry but my man Pablo made it. He was super friendly and helpful. Great place to have dinner after work in the area

    I made a reservation and called to say I was going to be late however no one picked up the phone. When we finally arrived (london traffic....) we were 15 min late and the only thing the waiter says is: You are lucky as I was going to cancel your reservation as we have many people waiting outside..... I thought it was quite rude .... However we had a sit and the waiter Erik was very kind during the entire dinner which made our dinner very nice. Thank you.

    This is my go to restaurant in London when I'm just too tired to plan anything. The food is great, the place is warm and lively and the service is just right. It's a lovely casual place for a relaxed evening with friends.

    Often walked passed this restaurant in Soho with queues outside waiting for a table but never been one to queue. Date Night after work with my partner and no queue! So we jump in! Shared table space like many Asian restaurants which make it very friendly. We received great service from the start. Welcoming, smiles with a can do attitude. All our questions answered around recommendations. The food was very well presented, hot and very fresh. Vlad was extremely friendly and gave great service. We will be back to enjoy more

    We had a wonderful dinner at this restaurant. The tables are all big sharing tables so you can't actually sit alone with your party but the ambiance was great. Our waiter Jakub was very attentive and polite, he made sure we were happy and well fed!

    After a very busy day seeing the sights, my husband and I fancied staying local to our hotel for our meal. We came across Busaba just near Tottenham Court Road and were glad we did. The menu wasn't huge but this was encouraging as extensive menus often lead to poorer quality food. We shared a number of starters and a curry between us. Everything was delicious. The beef brisket curry was particularly good. Well priced, quick service and great food. Thank you

    Busaba have recently updated their menu and removed my favourite go to lunch 'railway rice' that being said, the meal was still good, served in a timely fashion and the service from our waiter Jakub was excellent. Would recommend.

    Everything was good, but it was not traditional Thai if that is what you are looking for. Given that, they have traditional type dishes on the menu, they even have sticky rice which can be hard to find, but we are seasoned Thailand travellers and this didn't fully satisfy the craving. Dishes are hot, they come fast and service was great otherwise. We had the green curry chicken, ginger beef, tofu glass noodle soup, Thai beef salad, and Chinese broccoli.

    Good food. The beef dish was nicely spiced and the vegetable rolls were fine. Great service from Jakub made the experience all the better
