Thai restaurant group Busaba is set to open the latest restaurant of its casual dining concept in St Albans, Hertfordshire.
Launching today in the heart of the town’s shopping district, the restaurant will offer visitors the classic Busaba experience with modern Bangkok eating and a stylish fusion of Thai design features.
The 115-cover restaurant, which comes complete with a 17-seat private dining room, is the group’s 16th location following the recent opening at Oxford Circus and the third regional site after launches in Liverpool and Manchester.
The new site will be the second to adopt Busaba’s evolved design, drawing inspiration from traditional Thai architecture, textiles and joinery, with added layers of modern day Bangkok. A heated garden terrace with 28 covers will also offer guests the option to dine outside.
Popular signatures 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 recipes created 17 years ago in collaboration with former Michelin starred chef David Thompson, and stir-fry dishes cooked in sizzling woks.
Jason Myers, CEO of Busaba, said: “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. 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.”
