Busara Restaurant Review

: With a menu geared to corral a devoted Western following, Busara welcomes all to a modern setting outfitted with Thai trappings. It's contemporary food and that means some of the dishes don't sound particularly Thai, especially the lamb curry and the starter soup called Bangkok bouillabaisse. Otherwise, look for the ubiquitous pad thai, soft-shell crabs and honey roast duck. Mealtimes may be busy, but you won't feel pressured to eat fast and clear out. Also located in Reston Town Center.
