Busabu Louisville Thai Delights

Busabu Means Flower

Busabu can be tricky to find, but once you do, you are in for a treat. Fantastic, Authentic and spicy Thai food

In Thai, Busabu means flower. It could well mean “Authentic and Delicious Thai Food!”  This is a great dining spot with a loyal following.  Be prepared to wait for a table during dinner serving times.  This spot hops.

Mild To Hot And Spicy

When the staff asks “how hot?” Keep in mind, Busabu will happily serve you some wickedly spicy food.  We have tried a number of dishes on the menu and have continually been impressed with the flavors and nuances of great sauces.  Try the Drunken Noodles.  This dish is loaded with veggies and offers big wide noodles.  Do you enjoy curry?  Busabu offers every variation of Curry you can imagine and some wok dishes spiced with dry curry powder.

Great Food, So-So Service

From experience, the food is great and very authentic.  So it is worth the wait.  But that is sort of the downside. Every visit I wonder why the restaurant has not added even one more staffer. Busabu could use a little more help to keep things moving.  Yes, the food is delightful with sweet, savory and spicy sauces.  But the staff seems always to be a little behind and hurrying to catch up.  The signage from the street is visible, but doesn’t jump out. This is not the usual sort of location for a food spot.  But once you find it, get seated and your food arrives, you’ll quickly see why Busabu Thai is so popular with the Boulder crowd.

Well Rated And Deservedly So

Check Yelp, Google or any of the ratings sites and you’ll read plenty of great reviews on Busabu Thai.  Recently named to Best of The West and in the running for Best of Boulder.  Be sure to try the Thai Iced Tea and Drunken Noodles.   Extensive menu, takeout available.   Official website is: http://www.busabaco.com/
