I used to go all of the time to Busara. It has been several years but a friend suggested that we meet for lunch here. I was excited, remembering past meals. I ordered the chicken satay which was good. Then I ordered the Ka POW which was not at good. The meat was just too tough. Service was not great.

Six adults at dinner. Pleasant surroundings, good service. Ordered drunken noodle with mild heat since I had not ordered it previously at this restaurant and didn't know how they spiced. It came awash in brown liquid with limp noodles. Totally unappealing and visually repulsive. I asked them to drain it of the liquid. The result was something I should have... More

This is a place worth a return visit. It is the best place for Thai food with excellent service and easy parking.

We went for lunch and had Bangkok bouillabaisse (good), Tom Ka Gai (VERY good), seafood combination (ok), and pad see ew (good). Service was friendly and fast and the restaurant was nice and quiet. The decor is also nice. The price was $33 before tip.

The good is very tasty, plenty of choices, the portions just big enough that you never leave hungry but not too full either, the prices low, the parking lot big, the tables numerous, the interior decor nice, the staff attentive and friendly - what else could I ask for?

Busara does it well, and at a reasonable price. The service time from order to table was literally 7 minutes. Visible but unintrusive service. Fair pricing. Smiles from the servers. I'll continue to visit!

Booths, a nice range of tables and large bar with classy feel The menu is large and includes mostly Thai dishes with a range of drinks. I had a Black forest coffee, served hot with coffee liquor and cream. Great stomach-feel later at... More

When you are presented with the menu, it may take you about a half hour to read all the items they have to offer. Even if you don't see something on the menu you would like, they could make it for you (my friend ordered walnut chicken made with beef instead of chicken). I had Gai Yad Sai, which is... More

Nothing to right home about. Panang Curry was just so so. Although the A/C was on it was still warm inside.
