Busaba Bangkok Thai - Leicester Square
Fifteen years on, Busaba still offers a much coveted, flavoursome selection of freshly prepared salads, stir fries and curries. The menu also features Asian-inspired juices and smoothies, as well as a simple yet selective wine list.
Friday – Saturday: 12:00 – 23:30
Sunday: 12:00 – 22:30
Nice atmosphere and attentive staff. The duck breast was a little over cooked but everything else we ordered was good. Nice salads too.
Lovely Restaurant with a beautiful ambience.
Minus some noisy customers next to us (but disappeared after their meal after ten minutes ), very nice service and food was delicious.
Some of the food was spicy so a nice little kick.
Drinks were tasty especially a twist on a few drinks (such as the Aperol Spritz and Mojito).
Would visit this place again.
I have been with my friends for dinner on Sunday evening.
The food is very nice and tasty and the staff is friendly and available.
Very good atmosphere!
Food was ok but noodles and some dishes such as the fish cakes were obviously not freshly made, making the whole experience feel rather cheap. Also they have no dessert menu which is highly disappointing. Other than that staff are helpful and friendly. Décor and ambience was well put together.
Good atmosphere for dinner and date. However,our food weren’t hot and the curry didn’t taste decently. Overall foods here are a little bit confusing and disappointing.
Waited 45 minutes for sides, and 50 minutes for mains - tried to make eye contact with staff who weren't very receptive. Poor waitress seemed rushed off her feet! Can't really comment on the food as we were in such a rush to eat it before our theatre show.
The food was good but some dishes could have been made better (the spring rolls as starters were very generic - store bought can be better; several mains had way too much sugar in their sauces — too sugary and empowering). Music a bit too loud, I had to shout for the waitress to hear me.
The beef ginger very poor. Eating beef was like eating elastic bands. Very chewy and tough.
Food good, service a bit slow! Not keen on sharing tables when group of friends together for special occasion!
Not a fan of the shared tables, very little space to move. Food was average.
Delicious food and very original plates. Attentive services.
What a pleasant surprise to find somewhere in a tourist area so good and reasonable(v close to Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square). The waiter was very helpful, pointing us to the app which gave usa £5 discount. We had the set enu, which had more otions than the average set menu, and it comes with unlimited sweet potato fries and rice. all in all, well worth a trip
Prices at this restaurant seem to have gone up but portion sizes are decent. Service was a little slow but the food was good, especially the Thai calamari - always a favourite.
Calamari is amazing but I was a little disappointed that there were only 4 prawns in my large bowl of tom yum goong :( a vegetarian or fish option for pad Thai or masaman curry would be fantastic!
Not great service, food is literally ok (although calamari was burnt, stale and rubbery) and the whole menu is quite over-priced
It’s okay but I prefer the SOHO branch. Service was a bit slow. Could see right into the kitchen and the kitchen floor was filthy (seems like nobody is responsible for sweeping it). To be fair there’s nothing to say that the kitchen floor in the SOHO branch isn’t filthy too but at least there I don’t have to see it while I’m eating........
Food was fine nothing special. Drinks overpriced vs food
Good venue and good deal if you eat before 1900
Food was difficult to eat (chopped hard lemongrass) and menus dirty we asked for a new meal and when a fresh one came out we were charged twice. The food however was good and the service attentive
Extremely disappointed that they didn’t have our reservations and said that they stop taking reservations they open table up to a certain time of the day. So why list on the site then ??? But they still tried to accommodate us which we appreciated
Yummy food but the portions were too small for the price. Beautiful restaurant. A bit weird that the tables were shared with other people...they were just staring at us and listening to our conversation the whole time.
Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Would definitely visit again. 10/10.
Very average food and experience. I don’t think I will go back. Lots of other places to try.
It was pretty busy and loud (although I know it’s to be expected in the west end). Service was just so slow even when it died down and the cocktails were watery.
Great food which arrived probiotic, just a shame about the constant wait to order, to ask for the bill, to pay...
it was very busy and some of the christmas menu bits had already run out. but very good otherwise
We were sat away from the door but the every time it opened there was a cold gust of wind and on a busy Friday that was far too frequent.
Their policy of it's served when it's ready only works if you get a steady flow of food, not one item then a long wait for the rest,not to mention when it's overcooked.
The service wasn't great, perhaps too focused on the volume of people they could cram in rather than the quality of service.
Having a nice app to pay your bill is relatively common these days but it can't be seen as an excuse not to interact with customers once they've finished their mains.
Thank you for an amazing evening! My friends and I were celebrating our birthdays and we were overwhelmed by the kindness and generousity extended to us bmby tge wonderful staff in Busaba! It was so lovely to be treated to so many delicious treats and stunning ice cream birthday deserts! We loved it and will be back to celebrate many more special occasions at our fave Busaba in Panton Street! Merry Christmas to all the fantastic staff there!
Mould covered tofu in pad thai. They changed it promptly but offered no apology. Service was indifferent
Repas délicieux mais endroit très bruyant (c'était un vendredi soir). A tester au déjeuner ou un autre jour pour apprécier le restaurant par lui-même et être plus au calme. Réservation par internet est une bonne idée pour éviter l'attente.
an oasis of calm with good food we enjoyed tamarind duck , spicy chicken and a couple of glasses of champagne, perfect
Cheap and cheerful
Good value meal, very tasty.
Average food but otherwise a nice place to eat
Great ThaI restaurant, had a super pre theatre meal
The maitre didn't check our reservation and let us waiting together with those with no reservation. After getting into our table it took almost 20 min for us to be attended by a waiter. And another 15 min to get our drinks (it only happened after we had requested to 3 different waiters).
Dinner post cinema with my husband. Service was a bit slow but it was pretty busy. Glad we used the app to pay as we would've been waiting ages for bill/to pay though.
Amazing food and service, portions were very small though
We had a fabulous night here on Saturday. Excellent food, cocktails and service!
Wonderful service. Wonderful food. However Toilets need to be cleaned regularly.
