What is it: Restobar - Lounge

Where: 4, Mandlik Road, Colaba, Mumbai 400 001., Take the 3rd Left turn after Regal Cinema on Colaba Causeway and you will spot Busaba on your left, right next to Indigo.

What it says about itself: 2001 gave birth to Bombay’s Busaba Restaurant and Lounge Bar. Executive chef and founder Nikhil Chib brings his fresh idea alive by creating one of the first South-East Asian stand-alone restaurants and lounge bars India has seen. Busaba has an intimate relationship with South-East Asian authenticity. Busaba’s creative appeal carves a niche of Asian cuisine stacked with excellent chefs from Vietnam, Thailand, Korea and Burma coupled with a chilled out lounge. In the running for 8 years, Busaba still remains a popular resto-bar catering to an eclectic clientele. Busaba continues to hold a name in
Bombay for a special dining experience.

What we thought of it: Busaba means 'flower' in Thai. Nikhil was chatting with a cabbie about his new restaurant. The cabbie told him that beautiful girls were given petnames and the prettier ones were called flowers or "Busaba". That’s how the name came about. Busaba is NOT a fine dining restaurant. They like to be more bohemian, kitsch, more relaxed. This is a place for someone who wants to have fun without having a stiff upper-lip. Busaba prides itself upon the fact that they use ingredients like Thai Galangal to retain the authentic flavour of the food.

User Reviews:

Pradnya Hattangadi I have been to Busaba a couple of times and i must say it is a really relaxed place; Altho' the people who come there dress up a bit too much. They have a great drink called the Belly Button which you must try out, and their Momos are damn good too. The music is basically techno type stuff.... im not really a fan of that but then 4 belly buttons down, the music kinda loses importance. Also the owner is damn cute... so u must go there.
