I was abit skeptical to come here for dinner as I've never eaten at a Thai restaurant before and I wish I hadn't bothered now. The tables are so close together I had to squish past everyone trying not to knock someone out with my bag! We waited so long for a waiter to come over that we ordered drinks... More

The food was amazing, calamari were the best! We had a really good time. Even though we had to wait a bit in the queue, we quickly got inside and had our food ready in no time. Thanks Thomas for your service.

I've lost count of the number of times I've eaten at this restaurant. It's a great go-to place for a bite in Soho. The thing about Thai food in the UK (Busaba included) is that generally it doesn't come close to the Thai I've eaten in Thailand or my native Sydney where the cuisine is hugely popular. My visits back... More

I must admit that when I arrived made me suspicious not seeing either a Thai or Asian waiter and I thought "this is the usual restaurant for tourist". But the service is not the problem: the waiters, Italian 100%, are friendly and do a great job. The real problem is the food, Thai in name only. And who he says... More

The restaurant was jam packed with all European customers not a single thai person on site. I ordered the beef with chilli and rice that read nicely on the menu, but when the dish arrived it was a load of stinking minced beef which I returned because it was inedible. The green papaya salad was not nice and had no... More

Ordered Classic pad Thai and Laksa. The Laksa, unfortunately was quite disappointed: very small portion and hardly anything in there apart from the noodle, Classic Pad Thai wasn't a big portion either but it was delicious! I would say all of their Wok Noodles are worth trying!

I usually love a good Phad Thai noodle dish, but this was by far the worst I've had in London! ... The potions was extremely small and looked very bland and simple. I paid quite a bit for it too!....Also one thing that really annoyed me about the place was the seating arrangement. I don't know if this is standard... More

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
