Please don't tell anyone else, our best kept secret is no more. On our last visit we had a 20 minute wait. We have not found a dish we do not like, but our favourite's - the seafood with scallops and the duck, (also best pad thai, anywhere). We purposefully drive from British Columbia just to go for dinner here... More

Atmosphere and staff excellent -- FOOD WAS OUT OF THIS WORLD! My friend and I shared their chicken Thai salad and Orange Chicken special and this was the best food I 've EVER eaten -- and the price was $7.99! WOW! If I lived nearby I'd eat here more than once a week!

Service prompt and courteous. Food is good. Medium heat level is just enough to let you know it's there but not too hot for the ladies

This is the only Thai House I've found so far that offers Traditional Thai seating that we have yet to take advantage of. Gorgeous decor and atmosphere, however the staff are not the happiest, friendliest people and the food matches that. I've had very tasty, authentic Thai cuisine, but even at a spice level 4, it still tasted bland! My... More

Nice and clean Thai restaurant. Prices are correct and quality is good. Some of the dishes that we got were excellent especially the special Home Duck and the Spicy Seafood Fried Rice. We were disapointed anyway by the Bergamote Salmon/Scallops which were just boring without being bad. Quantities are not gigantic like other places in the US but were more... More

The food was not a stand out. The service started out ok but delivering the food to the table became quite a issue. Food was sitting under spotlight getting cold but not being served. Overall just a ok food night.

We went with friends with kids and Busara worked very well for us. We tried the fried rice, the Pad Thai, and the Panang curry and everyone, including the kids were happy.

Feasting in Thailand, the dishes there are spicier and of course tastier. Here, the dishes were sweet, too sweet, not spicy or hot at all or salty. I was very disappointed that Papaya Salad a common dish was not on the menu. My husband ordered a calamari appetizer and it was pasty, maybe it wasn't cooked long enough, plus the... More
