SquareMeal Review of Busaba Eathai Floral 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.

I love Basaba Wardour St. Just visited Floral St as a closer alternative. Pad Thai Jay – long on oil, short on veg. Tofu oily, rubbery, over-cooked. Restaurant very nice inside and out. The veg there is – cooked nicely indeed, but oily with the noodles. Virtually unsqueezable lime segment came with it. A bit of a greasy spoon Pay Thai really. With Gerrard St 5 mins walk away, there are better options. Could do better.

Our group of four Asians and me were pretty disappointed with the food here, admittedly it was Saturday night and the place was heaving, but service was pretty chaotic even if very cheerful. I guess a lot of people will find the food OK, but it's very bland and anglicised – actually correct that, it's Chinesey. I've never before had a papaya salad without a trace of chlli. If you like real Thai food you can do much better elsewhere.
