Bringing the buzz of Bangkok to St Albans


A new Busaba restaurant has just opened in St Albans and the owners hope it will bring the buzz of modern Bangkok to Hertfordshire.

The restaurant, which comes complete with a 17 seat private dining room and a standalone bar, will pride itself on offering modern Bangkok dishes in stylish Thai surrounds.

“After two successful openings in Liverpool and Manchester, as well as our recent launch in London’s Oxford Circus, it’s a great pleasure to announce the opening of Busaba St Albans,” said Jason Myers, Busaba CEO.

“We’re excited to be part of this buzzing city which has such a colourful history and thriving cultural life. As we continue to introduce the concept of Busaba outside of London, our vision of taking modern Bangkok food and hospitality nationwide is becoming a reality.”

Drawing inspiration from traditional Thai architecture and modern day Bangkok, the interior boasts a palette of gold, bronze and more urban influences and includes the six natural elements (water, earth, fire, metal, air and wood) deemed essential to positive living.

Exclusive collaborations with renowned street artists, Alex Face and Rukkit, will feature on the menus, while the standalone bar adds an extra dimension to the venue. A heated garden terrace offers guests the option to dine outside.

Popular dishes such as the Thai Calamari and Tamarind char-grilled Duck Breast can be found on the menu together with fragrant Thai curries still using the same loved recipes created 17 years ago in collaboration with former Michelin-starred chef David Thompson.

The restaurant’s new ‘Best of Busaba’ set menu will also be on offer, giving diners the chance to sample the most popular dishes for £18.90. The ‘Express Lunch’ menu will offer a new dining option to the midday crowd, while families are also catered for with a kid’s menu and a ‘Bangkok Buggy Park – suitable for prams and buggies to help families and other guests dine in comfort.

To complement this, Busaba will offer a range of Thai inspired cocktails and freshly made, exotic blended juices, alongside Asian beers and Thai spirits.
