This is a place worth a return visit. It is the best place for Thai food with excellent service and easy parking.

We went for lunch and had Bangkok bouillabaisse (good), Tom Ka Gai (VERY good), seafood combination (ok), and pad see ew (good). Service was friendly and fast and the restaurant was nice and quiet. The decor is also nice. The price was $33 before tip.

The good is very tasty, plenty of choices, the portions just big enough that you never leave hungry but not too full either, the prices low, the parking lot big, the tables numerous, the interior decor nice, the staff attentive and friendly - what else could I ask for?

Busara does it well, and at a reasonable price. The service time from order to table was literally 7 minutes. Visible but unintrusive service. Fair pricing. Smiles from the servers. I'll continue to visit!

When you are presented with the menu, it may take you about a half hour to read all the items they have to offer. Even if you don't see something on the menu you would like, they could make it for you (my friend ordered walnut chicken made with beef instead of chicken). I had Gai Yad Sai, which is... More

Nothing to right home about. Panang Curry was just so so. Although the A/C was on it was still warm inside.

The food was great. It is on the pricey side. I met some friends here and had a great time. Customer service is great. It took some time for our food to come out but overall the food was very good.

This is our favorite Thai restaurant. Friends insist on going to Thai restaurants that the newspapers rave about and that cost a small fortune - but the food here is better than any of those. And the prices can't be beat.
