Hadn't been to Bussaracum for a while. The food was still very good. The Tom Kha Gai soup was fantastic. I enjoyed the salt and pepper calamari and the green curry was excellent.

Came with a family. Food came fast and fresh, the Som tam salad had the true spiciness of Thailand. Duck curry was amazing, good balance of spices!! Will come back again. Thank you

Bland food. Pad Thai chicken that was mostly tofu; lacked flavour. Claggy cold brownish (!!) steamed rice. Roti without any satay sauce. Really very poor food.

We were a group of 5 adults and 2 young ladies. The service was good up to a point. The menu selection was excellent, the food was presented hot and it was very tasty. There was ample food on the plates. We asked for water on the table and were each given a 3/4 full glass, even though we were... More

Visited with a group of 7 - 4 adults and 3 children. The food here is consistently tasty and of generous portions, but gee the service was awful this time. From the time we ordered our meals til the time we received our orders was 1.25 hours! After an hour we asked how long our food would be and were... More

Bussaracum used to be an acceptable, good value Thai restaurant in suburban Ivanhoe. The last meal put us off so completely I think we would rather die that eat there again. We asked for a favourite fish dish served with spices to share with steamed rice. The fish tasted like chewy leather and was swimming in a splodge of sauce... More

This non assuming looking restaurant should not deter you from visiting. The food is incredibly fresh and oh so tasty. I have dined with friends and family several times and have had the best Thai chicken salad ever - including those that I've had in Thailand. Very reasonable prices too. Some of the waitresses aren't too great with English, so... More

The food here is very flavoursome. Great atmosphere with friendly staff. Away from the street below, it sits above Upper Heidelberg road. Definitely must try. Also great value and prompt service.

Hands down the most delicious duck salad I have ever eaten. My husband I come here regularly and while i occasionally deviate from my favourite, this salad is consistently great. Its a modest, nice, friendly place and providing the duck salad stays on their menu we will be returning often for years to come!

Thank sohosummer
