Set inside the world-famous exhibition and concert venue, Busaba Eathai The O2 offers informal Thai dining in a social, intimate setting. Communal tables make for a bustling ambience, with colourful cocktails and small plates adding to the laidback feel.

Flavoursome delicacies from across Thailand are served on the Busaba Eathai menu. Aromatic noodle soups include tofu and glass noodle, made with fresh oyster and wood ear mushrooms, while celebrated pad thais pack in smoked chicken, king prawn and shiitake. Mouth-watering curries are rich in colour and perfectly spiced, with the likes of banana peppers, Thai aubergine and bamboo shoots. For those just after a quick bite, there are small sharing plates of specials such as Thai tacos, chicken lollipops, and soft shell crab.

Sweet treats on the dessert menu at Busaba Eathai London include exotic flavours like pandan roll with coconut ice cream, passionfruit mousse, rich banana fritters and gluten-free crème brûlée. There are Thai beers and spirits, colourful juices, as well as signature cocktails made with exciting additions like rice tea, mango lassi and mulled lemongrass wine.

Offering inventive takes on Thai classics, Busaba Eatthai The O2 is a 3-minute walk from North London Tube Station.

    It wasn't authentic Thai, chicken pad Thai had large chunks of chicken that had no flavour. Service was somewhat slow.

    It was not exceptional, the waiters seemed to lack the enthusiasm to deliver a memorable service...

    The excellent cuisine was matched with the great atmosphere. The waitresses were very helpful and efficient. The manager was extremely helpful on our query.

    Awful. Completely different to usual Busaba Eathai experience on Panton Street in central London. Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, but the kitchen sent out miserly portions which we queried and were replaced. Told us the chef was used to different portion sizes; we effectively had starter size portions for a main course price. The table staff resolves this, but it's interesting to think we would have been overcharged if we hadn't questioned it when it was so noticeable.

    The food was amazing,would recommend the calamari - the best we have tasted! The massaman was delicious in fact the complete meal was great,service was friendly and fast. Oh the Pad Thai is another must!! We will definitely go back when we go to our next show, Busaba Eathai was the perfect start to our evening with Celine Dion!!

    So disappointed in our experience last night. We have eaten at Busaba Eathai on the last 3 occasions we have visited the O2 for concerts and always so happy with the excellent service and quality of food. We took my son to see Ed Sheeran for his 9th birthday last night, and booked a table for 5.30pm. We arrived at the restaurant at 5.25. We stood in a queue for 15 minutes, with no one acknowledging us, or the people in front of us - lots of staff were walking by and standing by the front desk to process orders. After worrying our table was going to be given away (as we were now 10 minutes after booking time) and establishing the people in front of us hadn’t booked, I approached one of the waiting staff to explain we had booked, to be shouted at to get back in the queue and wait.

    We eventually got seated at 5.45. The waiting staff all appeared incredibly harassed - they were running around and throwing dishes in the stations with great crashes. We waited until 6.15 for drinks. Our food arrived at 6.25. We had ordered prawn crackers from the children's menu for our son, and cashews. These never arrived. My noodle dish was freezing cold, clumped together and inedible. When we eventually got the attention of who I assume was the very busy looking manager, and explained we hadn’t received some of our food and it was cold, he removed these items from the bill, but did not have time to apologise.

    Having had such a lovely dining experience on previous occasions I can only assume the restaurant was incredibly short staffed and this contributed to the awful service. There is no excuse however for shouting at waiting customers, and this most certainly did not give a warm welcome and really ruined the first part of a family outing for my son’s birthday. Surely if the restaurant is located in a venue that has regular events, the anticipation for busy evenings like this should be accounted for in planning staff, particularly door greeters. We won't ever go back.
