Good selection

Good selection of vegan options. Clearly marked. I had the salad with soya chicken for lunch, which was tasty, filling and satisfying.

Fav restaurant in London

Busaba is an Asian/Thai chain restaurant located in different areas of the city, so it won’t be to hard to find one! The one in Shoreditch has a magic atmosphere, decorated with dim orange lights and the little bamboo fountains with flowers at the entrance. I guess is a place where you can either go for drinks with your girls or for a romantic dinner date. With fresh crunchy veggies, crispy tofu, garnished with crushed peanuts and fresh spring onions, this Pad Thai is a classic are you’re gonna loved it. You can add soy sauce for an extra taste, but it’s delicious even keepin it basic. Among the soft drink the Guava collins is the best, not too sweet and so refreshing! The Sriracha ho fun noodles are a flavor explosion in your mouth. Stuffed with wok-fried mushroom, red pepper and baby spinach seasoned with sweet chilli, soy and ginger sauce with fill your belly with no guilt after. Fried to perfection (who likes oily fingertips?!), the Por-Pi Jay are crispy vegetable spring rolls with Thai sweet chilli sauce, ideal as a starter or for sharing. Spicy and super creamy the Green Curry Jay is infused with lemongrass, chilli and ginger, with courgette, peas, zucchini, aubergines, onions, bamboo and sweet basil. It’s accompanied by a small portion of rice of your choice. A hearty dish, that will make your heart sings! Busaba is one of my favourite places to go for an easy lunch or dinner with friends. I really would like to know if you like it! Would you recommend it?

Pros: delicious food, everywhere in london, affordable

Cons: in some location, rude staff

Aubergine curry

Dining area is arranged into large tables that can accommodate groups up to 10 people. At the same time, the interior offers relaxing atmosphere with dimmed lights.

Vegan aubergine curry was a new item on the menu, so I tried it. The dish was delicious - it has all you can expect from a curry - but not particuliarly outstanding to similiar dishes that competitors offer.

Vegan options are clearly marked on the menu but not the level of spiciness.

Unfortunately, this branch doesn't serve deserts on the menu that you can find online except of icecream. I was really looking forward a vegan desert so I felt a bit dissapointed.

I would definitely visit this branch again because of the relaxing feel of restaurant and I bring in a larger group.

Pros: Spacious, Convenient location

Cons: This branch doesn't offer deserts apart from icecr

Yummy vegan pad thai

Great location and some nice vegan options . The vegan pad thai is yummy and spring rolls.

They have a good weekday early evening offer which is worth checking out and they were happy to switch for a vegan option. And you can get student discount!

Pros: Student discount and mid-week offers , Vegan options, Deliveroo!

Cons: Sometimes a bit slow service

Good restaurant in trendy part of city

Thai restaurant situated amongst several cocktail bars on old street.

The food was good and well presented with a few good vegetarian and vegan options on the menu as well as some interesting cocktails.

Unfortunately the service was a little slow to begin with; it took a long time for our order to be taken but the service picked up a bit after then.

Pros: Good food, Vegetarian and vegan options

Cons: Slow service
