Restaurant description

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.

    Lovely food, quick service and also very good price! However, the restaurant itself was extremely warm!

    Food was amazing and brilliantly priced, however we were sat on stools squished into a corner by the window and our knees were almost touching our ears, not to mention the seats much smaller than your arverage bottom. Very cramped and uncomfortable but other wise would have been perfect!

    Food was nice but it would be nice to have chairs that will support the back. They did not have the grave cocktail that I was so looking forward to having.

    Firstly, the seating that we were assigned was very close to the main entrance which meant that cold air will hit you when someone walks through the door, we requested to move seats but the staff seemed reluctant. Secondly, the food served was not at standard starting with the green chicken curry where the chicken was extreme dry. The coconut rice that we ordered was not cooked proper which lacked moisture and was partially uncooked (it's honestly not that difficult to cook rice!) Lastly, we were handed the wrong bill, apparently the bill that was meant for us was incorrectly paid for and handed to another customer meaning they paid less for their bill since the bill that was handed to us was significantly more expensive. In conclusion, this was by far one of the worst dining experience I've had, ranging from unfriendly staff to absolutely terrible food.

    Good atmosphere. Food hit and miss. Pad Thai just not a good flavour like it used to be years back. No spices (dried chilli) on the table to add to the dish.

    Food was amazing! Chicken satay and laksa were especially good. The atmosphere is nice, however, it is maybe not suited for romantic meetings because of the seating arrangement in the restaurant.

    Easy to book online, nice restaurant next to Covent Garden station. The tables are sharing so probably not the best place to go on a first date, but good atmosphere. We had the pre-theatre menu which was really good value; two courses for £12.95. Both courses came at the same time which we didn't mind and they were tasty. Only thing I would say is both mains could have done with more sauce, they became a bit dry towards the end. Overall great service and positive experience, would come back again.
