Busaba Eathai

This chain of budget Thai eateries is experiencing a growth spurt and Westfield Stratford is one of the latest. Patrons are seated around large communal tables, and the menu offered includes a decent variety of salads, soups, stir-fries, curries and noodle dishes. The old favourites are worth returning for, such as a soothing, galangal-rich tom kha noodle soup with chargrilled chicken and slippery glass noodles, or aromatic pandan chicken.

Was impressed by the quality of food here. The low lighting combined with incense and gold Buddhas gives the branch a more oppulent feel then you'd expect from a chain. Most of the tables are for sharing and given how busy the restaurant It can feel quite cramped. The menu has a good mixture of Thai favourites like pad thai and massamum curry but also some stir fry and char grilled meat dishes. The squid looks bizarre but tastes amazing. I think the dishes would benefit from more garnishes to get a proper taste of all the contrasting flavours in Thai cuisine. But all in all a pretty decent high street option that isn't too heavy on the purse strings. Not sure how I felt about the sweet potato fries on the menu though- I opted against trying them.
