A delicious restaurant where you can have nice meals. You sit on big square tabels all togehter, with other guests exept your around 8 people than you'll probably have one for all. The all togehter gives a nice atmosphere but perhaps not the best for a candle light dinner to make a proposal.

I tasted the fried shrimps in the chilli sauce, spring rolls and the beef and ginger. It was delicious and the price range is really good considered the quality of the food. Really nice spot!:)

I had lunch here with my youngest son and we both really enjoyed the food. The staff are very good and friendly but will leave you alone till you're ready. The food may not all come at the same time but this was not a problem as it's well worth waiting for.

I have been to Busaba Eathai a few times and in various locations. The Soho is probably the one I have dined at most. On this occasion it was a spare of the moment and I hadn't been to this branch for a few months. The first thing I didn't like was being escorted to the seats facing the window.... More

Consistently tasty, well presented Thai cuisine. I have been going there for years and wonder whether portions have recently become smaller though. Beautiful decor: what was the need to change it then (e.g. new tables, the old ones looked much better)? I also wonder whether the wood from the decor is entirely sourced from sustainable forests.

Visited Busaba last night with a friend and I was really disappointed. I am vegan and used to go to Busaba regularly in the past as a vegetarian so I thought I would pay the place a visit. I checked with the manager when I sat down to make sure I could eat more than boiled rice. He was very... More

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
