Busaba Eathai has many restaurants in London. This one is very near from Covent Garden underground station. Food is thai style food and it has every time been excellent.

We chose a couple of starters (rather than a main) and the food, especially the squid, was absolutely delicious and excellent value for money!

We visited this restaurant before seeing The Lion King. We were early diners arriving at 6pm which was to our advantage as we were able to choose from a fixed menu at a great price. Fast and polite service and the food was wonderful. Highly recommended.

The food looks and what is more important tastes perfect! It was my first time in Busaba restaurant and I was really surprised. Plates arrived after 10-15 minutes. We were served by the blond guy and little girl with curly long hair. All the waiters were smiling and I could feel a friendly atmosphere in this place.

Description
Busaba is a Thai flower. Eathai is a fusion of the words eat and Thai. Differing from formal dining establishments, Eathai represents a Thai casual dining venue, offering a one-course dining experience devised to feed you with minimal fuss. 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. Tucked between the Long Acre and the Royal Opera House, Busaba Covent Garden is superbly placed for a relaxing pre-show meal for Londoners and tourists alike.
