A sleek hideaway in the West End, Busaba Eathai Covent Garden presents modern Thai dining founded by acclaimed restaurateur Alan Yau. Dine at funky communal-bench seating in the minimalist, softly-lit dining room.

The Busaba menu packs bold flavours into an array of stir-fry, curry, soup and noodle dishes. Discover the likes of fried chicken stir-fry with lemongrass, shallots and sweet chilli sauce, massaman duck curry with peanut, star anise and cinnamon, or a classic pad Thai with king prawns, shrimp, beansprouts and lime. From the grill, try salmon fillet with baby spinach and coconut rice, or beef sirloin with a spicy tamarind sauce.

A considered selection of drinks at Busaba Covent Garden is on hand to complement the full range of flavours. Exotic soft drinks include jasmine smoothie with passion fruit, banana, orange and natural yoghurt, whilst aromatic teas and international wines are also on offer.

Found within one of London’s buzziest areas, Covent Garden Busaba Eathai is just a minute’s walk from Covent Garden Tube Station.

    Unfortunately I did not realise that tables were a standard size of 12, meaning we were sharing with 3 other groups. The place was busy, and very loud as tables were squeezed in. The food was mostly nice, but sauce was missing from the chicken satay. I was also charged £8 for two large lemonade which were about a 1/2 pint each!This would be a nice place for a big group, but wasn't for me.

    Loved the food. Courteous staff. The reason for taking off one star is that we had to wait 15 minutes for our table to be ready even though we had booked in advance - wouldn't have mind if we didn't have a show booked right after dinner. We had to rush towards the end. Also, they seemed to be short of staff while the place was packed which led to a bit of a slow service.

    DIVINE food but but very noisy atmosphere. Not a place for a quite catch-up with someone

  • ((*** 30 January 2017 by Tom Jansz from London

    Food was disappointing - sticky rice was dry and over-cooked and roast duck was also over-cooked

  • (((** 30 January 2017 by Felicia from London

    Nice atmosphere, slightly cramped but it was a Friday night.

    Food was far too salty

    Good service

    Very busy restaurant but as we had booked we were seated quickly and could choose where we sat. Tasty food arrived quickly and the house beer is excellent. Very reasonable bill at the end too.
