Square Meal Review of Busaba Eathai Bird Street ?

Ten years, ten branches. Busaba Eathai has picked up the pace of late, but standards remain high & its regulars loyal. This chain of Thai eateries, conceived by Alan Yau, gets away with things a less sexy outfit could not: hour-long waits for a berth, no starters, no desserts, communal tables. What’s its secret (aside from the Thai calamari which has most readers in rapture)? In short, it’s ‘quick, affordable, informal & open all day’. Chic interiors, low lighting & that all-important ‘buzz’ don’t do it any harm either. There’s a feeling that portions are shrinking, but the menu of stir-fries, curries, noodles & salads still pleases most visitors. The appeal of certain dishes never diminishes – think stargazer monkfish curry, stir-fried morning glory, & pad thai with prawns, not forgetting those delectable calamari.

    inher30s :: Christmas Lights & Busaba Eathai

    Getting out of the cold, we duck into Busaba Eathai off Oxford Street (Bird Street to be precise) for a quick bite. Chargrilled chicken with Sticky Rice for me, Prawn Pad Thai for Friend S and Ginger Peppercorn Thai Calamari to share. We were pretty hungry. Hoping for a Hainanese Chicken rice replica, i was extremely happy with my dish. Although a bit peeved at being offered an entire chicken leg (What, I’m expected to cut it myself?), it tasted gooooood – the sauce was a spice delight, the pickled salad throwing a sneaky punch, all elements having a little party with my tastebuds...

    andmorefood :: busaba eathai, london

    fantastic thai all over town. I’ve wanted to share this place with you guys for so long, and even though I’ve been here more than 10 times now, it’s so much a weeknight-treat sort of place that I’ve never had my camera with me. (well, so thank goodness for the iphone, and sorry for the artificial quality of the photos) I’ve had all the noodles on the menu, all the grilled dishes and the sides, most of the soup noodles, and my partner has basically worked his way through the rice dishes. I suppose what I am telling you is that I have never had a bad dish here, although the strangest one that I wouldn’t order again is the fruit salad – which was not to my taste though I wouldn’t say it was a bad dish...
