Busaba Kingston offers an exotic fusion of traditional and contemporary Thai cuisine on the banks of the Thames. Floor-to-ceiling windows showcase the restaurant’s stunning location.

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 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.

A stroll over the bridge from Hampton Court Palace, Busaba Kingston Riverside is also a short walk from both Kingston and Hampton Wick train stations.

    Sadly not the experience we were expecting. My "succulent" chicken livers to start were over cooked & dry, luckily the sauce provided some moisture. The chicken satay peanut sauce didn't even taste of peanuts & was highly spiced yet no indication of this was seen on the menu. In a similar vein, the chicken main course was very spicy even after being advised that it wasn't by the waiter before hand & no indication of such on the menu.

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    I wouldn't have written a complaint but I received an email asking for a feedback.
    We have been going to Busaba over 2 years almost every Sunday (Sunday isn't busy so at least we don't need to book a table so it's become our Sunday date night restaurant to go). We always liked the food, the staff are very nice most of the time. But recently we have noticed a significant drop on quality of food.
    Yesterday we had an appalling experience in the Kingston restaurant.
    I always eat the same dish (Sen chan pad thai) so I know how it tastes, but yesterday it was full with chilli, absolutely uneatable. I like spicy food, I love chilli, but eating yesterday meal made me sweat, ruined the taste of my wine. It was absolutely terrible. I didn't want to reorder my food, because in the meanwhile my partner was half way through his meal (which was also with too much chilli!!!!).
    And the top of all these, we were waiting more than 10-15 minutes for the staff to clean the table, even though they weren't busy by that time we finished with our meal (well I wasn't able to finish mine).
    The reason I'm making the complaint because I still have heart burn because of the food,

    Busaba is a neighbourhood restaurant that can always be relied on for tasty offerings. We booked ahead as we were treating my niece who was visiting from Dubai, to lunch.
    However, the service was awful. We got to the door and stood there unattended while staff saw to everything and everyone else, even things that seemed not urgent, like wrapping cutlery in napkins. Eventually we called out to one who then came over and attempted to seat us. While we indicated to her where we preferred to sit, a colleague came up and whispered to her, whereupon she claimed that we could only sit in the part of tje restaurant we were not keen on, even though there were empty tables elsewhere, Grudgingly, we took our seats. 15 minutes later, we had to call the waitress over to take our order. No offer of drinks first etc. so we ordered and ten we waited. The water came to the table, but nothing else did for a full 20 - 25 minutes. Then it all came at once, after we enquired twice; starter and mains arriiving together. Interestingly, at the second time of asking, the waitress claimed she didn't know what was happening in the restaurant that day and apologised for the wait for our food.
    The curries and the grilled salmon were all tasty, as were the calamari and the Thai coleslaw.

    Felt like we'd been put through the wringer just to have a simple lunch. Sad. I'd like to go there again because of the food, but the service was awful.
