Busaba Eathai is a Thai restaurant in Dubai Marina with a relaxed vibe and delicious food.
As loyal customers of the London-based Thai eatery, we were excited to hear that they had recently landed in Dubai. Located on The Beach, JBR we immediately felt nostalgic as we recognised the distinct decor of this casual restaurant chain. The dark wood floors, low-lighting and communal benches give it a casual yet sophisticated Asian vibe.
We started our meal with the restaurant’s signature dish, Thai calamari (37 AED). A must-order, it is lightly battered and exploding with flavour. The recipe is one that is kept under wraps, so you definitely won’t find this dish at any other restaurant in the world.
The order of the chilli prawn stir-fry (51 AED) had a nice spicy kick to it. Our personal favourite was the mussaman duck curry (60 AED)-a beautifully cooked duck in a rich and tasty sauce. We were quick to scoop it all up with a crispy thai roti (18 AED).
The service was friendly and attentive and the waitress knew a lot about all the dishes on the menu. Overall, the experience was good. Busaba Eathai offers fresh and flavoursome Asian fare and the added bonus is the generous portions. Oh, and its all-day dining.
