THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Busara Restaurant Review

: Proof that Denver has at least partially emerged from its cowtown cocoon---a Thai eatery serving upscale and exotic dishes opens its doors in lower downtown and does remarkable business. If you are a fan of spicy food, you will love this place. Even the house salad dressing contains a warm combination of peanuts and chilies. But it's not all sweat and runny noses. Each dish contains contrasts. Sweet and sour, firm and soft, spicy and cool... you get the idea. In a cozy and understated turn-of-the-century storefront in trendy and restaurant-ridden LoDo, Busara carves out a niche for itself by dishing up wonderfully executed Thai cuisine to an appreciative audience that often borders on being a mob. Exposed brick walls, crisp white linens and sparse, tasteful decorations set an elegant tone. Curry, coconut milk, basil, lemongrass, tofu, soy and oh yeah, chilies make numerous appearances on the menu. The lunch specials are a bargain- all of them under $10 and served with a small salad and jasmine rice. Presentations are all attractive without being over the top. A nice beer and wine list is present- although the wines are priced way high. Remember, this is the high-rent district after all. The menu has a great mix of chicken, fish, shellfish, pork, beef and vegetarian dishes. There's something for everyone- except perhaps those who thrive on the bland.
