Manchester Restaurant Review – Busaba The Printworks

I have discussed before that I am retired and have new found freedom. I am lucky enough to have some fabulous friends who are also available some weekdays. We try and be the proverbial ‘ladies that lunch’


I like to share some of the activities we do and places we visit – reviewing the venue and food.

  • Name of venue visited

Busaba eathai

  • Reason for visit

Late lunch with friends – this meal was a competition prize. I don’t have any photographs of the dishes – too busy chatting and enjoying Sorry!

Time and day of visit

Wednesday 2pm – prebooked

First impression

  • Greeted and seated immediately. They were expecting us as it wasa  competition prize from Twitter.
  • Time to get servers attention/service

Met at the door by friendly staff – immediate attention. Our table was already prepared and set with prawn crackers and dips.

  • Food quality

This is the second visit for me. I have to admit Thai is not one of my favourite foods to eat, however the more I try it the more I like it. The food was delicious. We were booked in for a Thai Banquet lunch – a mixture of small plates and main dishes, served in a  sharing style.

  • Quality of Service

Service was prompt and friendly. The 2 servers named each plate as it was put on the table but there was so much I’m embarrassed to say that I can’t remember the names of most of the plates – there was plenty on offer. A great variety, 2 varieties of rice to accompany each choice.  Service was slick and efficient, plus accompanied by big smiles!

  • Evaluation

Really pleasing visit. Good food at reasonable prices. Nice and spicy – the way I like it!

As I said this meal was a competition prize but not in return for a review. The company and staff had no idea that my intention was to review for my blog. The opinions are not influenced by the complimentary food. We paid for our own drinks. I had a glass of house white wine – very palatable wine and reasonably priced.

The only slight negatives was the temperature of the area we were seated in – initially it was too warm – the air conditioning was blasting out heat, then I think it was perhaps turned off and a couple of my friends then felt cool – I was very comfortable when it cooled down – that’s an age thing – wink!

Also there was background music which, although pleasant and authentic to the Thai setting, it was a tad too loud

  • Would I visit again?

Yes, definitely. It’s a great place for a quick bite to eat.

Have you tried this restaurant? – there are many around the country – if so let me know your opinion I’d love to hear from you.

Here’s a link to the website to see if you could be tempted
