Authentic Thai food is hard to find here in the southern region of the USA. Frequently they tone the spices down for Americans. Not so Busara! The flavors were rich and right on. Their extensive menu seemed to include several Chinese dishes, as well.

Busara is favorite of ours. I've been dining here for 12 years and have never had a bad meal or bad service. Never disappointed. Friendly staff & Great service. Fresh ingredients. Lime leaves and Thai basil are favorite flavors of mine. Busara gets it right.

Great place for lunch, efficient service, good prices and menu options. Has vegetarian options and will modify for vegan palates. Always busy at lunch, and many pick up orders, but still good table service.

Good commercial thai food with a good happy hour. If you want good Thai food that is consistent this a good spot. It is not breaking new territory but you will get what you are expecting.
