The food is really good. I would only get take out, because the service is lousy at best. We dined in, big mistake. They won't walk 10 feet to get you a drink at happy hour. They put your knife and fork on the dirty tables instead of bringing new ones after your appetizers. The waitress didn't answer questions well,... More

I have gone here several times when my wife and I decide to go somewhere at the last minute. The place is very big and there always seems to be plenty of room. The noise level is very low. The food is consistently good to very good. I have had the duck roll appetizer several times and it is always... More

I do not know what has happened to this place. The food was all but not editable. We ordered the usual list of Duck Rolls, Pad Thai, Calimari, Cashew Chicken, and salads. The food was over cooked and tasteless.

This is my favorite Thai restaurant in Restaurant. Been going here for over a decade - and it is always consistent in its quality and taste. The service is always good. I don't recall too many times when we had to get a reservation.

This was my first time to Busara and I will definitely come back. The service was excellent, food was great and at a great location. I'm a huge fan of curries and this place is right there at the top. If this is what your looking for, I encourage you to try it.

I go every Friday night so I am very bias. Maybe because I adore the bartenders Georgie and Snow. They make the BEST drinks! Often I go on a Sunday night when the place is less crowded. The restaurant has a different vibe when they are slammed. I appreciate that the manager is not only visible, but is available and... More

This is usually a great alternative to super busy restaurants in the town center. Nice place to duck into for pretty good thai/asian food. I have been two or three times and never had a wait.

Have stopped here for lunch. Its located in the Reston Town Center. The service is quick and the food is good. Most people I have spoken to that have been there have never made a complaint about the place.

Busara has a good selection of Thai items such as pad thai, various noodle dishes and papaya salad (a favorite of mine). They can alter the spiciness of the dishes. In general they cover seafood, meats and vegetarian with good results.
