It's such a pity that Busaba Thai was permanently closed. I just saw from outside which it looked so cool bar with cool design. Actully, I am looking forward to visit this bar after MCO in Malaysia. Unfortunately, Busaba Thai was gone.

Good neighbourhood Thai place! When my family wants good Thai food, we always go here because the food never disappoints. Consistently it is always good food and very polite staff that make you feel comfortable and you will enjoy your whole dining experience!

I’ve visited this restaurant a few times when it was first opened some years ago. To my delight during recent visit, we had the same quality Thai food and the ambience is just as warm and cosy. My friends enjoyed the overall experience they had...there. A good place to entertain for some good Thai food.More

The decor was very elegant and subdued. The food was authentic Thai. We especially liked the clear Tom Yam soup. The seafood was fresh and the servings generous. The staff were courteous and the service excellent. The night we went (Friday) there was a live...piano recital. They serve beer and wine, which is available by the glass or bottle based on preference. All in all a wonderful dining experience.More

Was there attending a family members wedding reception,which means we were upstairs in the private dining area. There was an upsetting event that happened that night. I ordered a glass of water or bottled water for my 6 year old downstairs at the bar and...the guy in the bar said I need to order it upstairs (where our dinner was held). So I went up and ordered and I clearly said I don’t mind paying, and the supervisor told me “ you are not allowed to order anything that is outside of what is already arranged for the dinner”. Please note that they were only serving wine and lemongrass water for the dinner. Please also note that they were serving mugs of beer that was being paid for on Cash on Delivery Basis. You can just imagine my shock to what the Supervisor said to me. Water. A simple order which I intend to pay was rejected. Yet they could serve beer? What nonsense! I had to go the the seafood restaurant next door to buy water for my kid. Can you just imagine all that spicy food and you cannot get a hold of water? After highlighting my concerns to the organizer only then we got some bottled water and that was around 8pm. The dinner started at 7pm. For a restaurant with many awards it is shameful that this could even happen. ——————————- The Food : It was alright but not great. Tom Yum soup stood out the most. I absolutely loved it. The rest of the food choice was alright but not great. So I feel that it’s not worth it at all because the same quality can be found at a standard Thai restaurant. If posh Thai food and service is what you’re looking for, then by all means please go ahead. The Service: Despite the one unpleasant event that night, the staff in general were helpful and courteous. They were attentive, however, I feel like they were undermanning. There were 6 tables and I only saw 3-4 servers. Maybe something the management can work on? The ambience: The interior design is beautiful. The restaurant itself has a dim-lit romantic vibe going on and it gives you a luxurious feel. The Ladies Room: Is well kept and clean.More

Visited for a birthday celebration with 11pax and a baby. Food was mediocre considering it’s premium price. Ambience was good. However, considering there were just 3-4 small tables dining, staffs were not attentive at all. Had to remind them several times (X2-3times) for rice, tea...cups, cake and clearing of table for the cutting of cake. Flagging down staff also proved to be a difficulty as staffs were always not stationed around occupied tablesMore

The overall rating 'average' does not really describe the whole experience. 'very good' would have been a bit too much. In my opinion, the right choice would be 'Good!' cause staff is nice, place is lovely, atmosphere is great and a value for money is...excellent. What more can you ask for ?More

Great place! Even with a full house, it was not noisy. Was looking for a place where we can carry out a decent conversation over dinner. Places like WIP on the ground floor is just too noisy to be able to do that.

I visited Busaba at Sunway Hotel with family for a birthday dinner, and safe to say I was quite impressed with the place. The ambience, quality of food, and service was impeccable. The one downside was that the tomyam soup (which is typically a must...have when dining at a Thai restaurant) is not served for groups. It is only served for individuals. Prices are a little steep considering the very small portions, but it is worth a shot if you’re looking for a fancy place to dine in.More

We went here and eat last December 20, 2018. The crew and staff are very polite and generous that they allow us to come in even after our reservation was over. We were a little late yet they have accommodated us. A friend of mine...is a vegetarian and they immediately provided her with a vegetarian menu. We ordered their sampler appetizer where you can taste all of the appetizers they have in small portions and I must say that it is awesome. I had my TOM YAM Soup and to my surprise, it was really an authentic flavor. I 've been to Thailand so I know the real taste. The sour and spicy combination of the food make me knock out. All of the food we ordered are delicious. my friends love their chicken in pandan leaves too as well as their pad thai. I wouldn't forget the drinks we ordered. I love my drinks which i forgot the name but it has a BUTTERFLY in its name. Totally refreshing! When we are about to leave, we cannot resist but to take photos on their 2 horses display at the main door The staff didn't hesitate to take our photos in. I love the food, i like the ambience and its value for your money! Will i return again to this place? Definitely YES.More

Great range of flavours and delicious spring rolls. I found the chicken too spicy and the rice too sticky.
