Featuring exciting fusion recipes that mix Thai delicacies with other flavours from across Asia, Busaba Eathai Chelsea is a stylish, intimate space on the world famous King's Road. Low lighting and Oriental style within create an inviting ambience, and from the bar there is an eclectic cocktail list and range of imported beers and spirits served.
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 in Chelsea 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.
Set in one of London's most fashionable areas, Busaba Eathai Chelsea is a great people-watching spot. Fulham Broadway Tube Station is just a 4-minute drive away, and the numerous boutique shops and exclusive clubs of the area are just a stone's throw away.

This is my least favourite branch of Busaba of the 4 or 5 that i’ve tried. Our table for 10 was not ready/arranged when we arrived. The two managers bustled around a lot, rearranging things , countermanding each other and making it unsettling for us and junior staff. Food was ok-ish. Beef rib did not come with the advertised roti. Coconut rice side dish was sweet! Not savoury. When I told the manager of that fact and that I thought it was probably mistakenly made with sweetened coconut milk, he just shrugged in that Latin way and looked incredibly sceptical. No attempt to make things right or investigate the matter. Well I don’t think we’ll be coming back v soon to this brunch. Pity as it is conveniently located.

The meal and quality of food in Busaba Thai was genuinely superb. Fabulous meal and super service.

Dishes lacked the complexity of true Thai street food. Extra chilli needed in all our dishes. The Tom Yum soup was not substantial given it was a main course.

Not a great experience. Always neglected by waiters in this branch. Pretty much have to yell out to get any attention. Place was only half full, yet we waited about 40 mins for our food, no compensation or apologies offered, this seemed the norm. When food did arrive, it was average. Had much better at other branches, incomparable.

I'm not one to write reviews on websites but after my experience, I felt compelled to. I dined here for my birthday as a party of 13. We requested the Bangkok banquet at £28.90 a head for 10 of us as the others were children and one of my party members is vegan. I called ahead the week before once I had paid my £70 to advise of my requirements and I also entered them on the 'easypreorder' website.
We ordered the A La Carte food and the children's meal and asked them to be brought out with our mains. When the starters came out there was only enough for 7 people, when we questioned this and asked for another 2 portions, we were 'barked' at by Angela who told us 'it's a sharing menu so what do you expect'. After a lot of huffing and puffing, we finally got the extra portions that were rightfully ours anyway. Next the mains came out, I specifically asked for only plain / jasmine rice and we were still provided with a mixture that included the coconut rice, which ended up being wasted. As requested, the A La Carte meals came out but the children's meals had not (two children's portions of chicken fried rice). When we asked where the food had gotten too, another waitress went to check and advised that it was now being prepared. Clearly, the order had not been put through until then because we waited another 10 minutes for it to arrive. I also order two portions of Matchstick chicken for the children to enjoy with their rice. I asked Angela about the Matchstick chicken 4 times before it arrived and was given various responses 'wait a second', 'it's coming', 'it'll be two minutes', etc. the dish arrived just ahead of the sharing of dessert when the mains we being cleared. I don't want to write an essay but I hope you get my drift. The attitude of Angela is not that of manager or a person who's role it is to provide customer service. I enjoyed the food but I will not be visiting that branch again. It was not something I expect in any establishment, especially not in Chelsea.

Really bad,,,, bad food,, and service

Very disappointing. Restaurant 56-60% full, service abysmally slow and food quality below expectations -precooked and barely warmed up in the case of some dishes

We are a family of 6 visiting for my daughters birthday. We booked but when we arrived at 7:30pm it seemed to be a surprise.
As I write we have been waiting for our food for 1 hour and 6 minutes.
The waitress and manager came to explain a minute ago that the kitchen was struggling with the volume of orders. The food seemed to come in no particular order in the respect that the table next to us with a family of 5 sat down 20 minutes after we arrived and are currently finishing their main courses. It's like having a full restaurant is a surprise.
Update: the starters arrived after 1 hour 13 minutes.
The worst experience in a restaurant I have had in years. The water we asked for never arrived.

Terrible from start to finish, poor service no attention to customer basic needs. No or poor presentation of the dishes served. Left with money on the table as no one attended for 10mn after servir the bill not even on a plate or inside a book. Terrible! Food tasted ok but without the presentation it felt like going to a mates pad.
