I was first introduced to Busaba Eathai during my teen years when it was just a restaurant on Wardour Street, it is now a recognisable chain of several restaurants throughout London and I was recently able to introduce the Little Londoners to the Shepherds Bush restaurant.
We arrived at around 11.40am, although 20 minutes before the kitchen opened we were invited to find a table until they were able to take our order (which is rare) and immediately offered a highchair if required. For only £5.90 the children’s menu offered a snack, main and drink. The options are a refreshing change to the usual fare seen on children’s menus yet still suitable for an immature palette.
Both boys opted for pick-up veggies to start with, followed by satay chicken, broccoli and sweet potato fries (these could have been switched out and replaced with either Jasmine rice or egg noodles). They demolished everything put in front of them and seemed to enjoy the meal as a whole, which brings me to…
What would did the Little Londoners think and would they go back again?
W (4) said: “This is delicious, it was yummy in my head and ate it all up! I want to come back here again.”
B (2) said: “I like chicken and chips, I want more for dinner.”
What do I think?
I have always enjoyed going to Busaba Eathai, I was highly impressed with the children’s menu and what they offer in terms of affordability. I would definitely take the Little Londoners back again. They were accommodating, attentive and timely, all the things required for an enjoyable meal out with children .
