A taste of thai

Having travelled extensively in Thailand I always like to try thai food in the UK. The Thai Basil Restaurant is a good place to eat, the food is tasty and although not exactly how you would have it in rural Thailand it is well worth a visit The staff are quirky but very friendly

We ate here on a Saturday night during our short stay in Bath. You don't feel like you are in England anymore when you step into this restaurant. It is popular so you might want to make a reservation during busy times. However, even when it is completely full it doesn't feel noisy or crowded. The menu is very extensive... More

Having a love of Thai food ,having been to rural Thailand many times,the Thai Basil provided good food and drink. Portion sizes were large and spicey,if you do wanted. The service was a little disappointing with several dishes being brought out to the wrong tables and food being cleared away before it being finished.

The restaurant is located very near to the centre of Bath and so there is very limited parking outside the restaurant. The restaurant is decorated very well and the tables aren't too close together so you don't get disturbed by other diners - unless they're incredibly noisy. The menu is well laid out and there is a good selection with... More

It has yet to let me down over some 20/25 visits in the last two years. This time a lunch visit of exceptional value! A spicy duck thai salad with all the flavours of fish sauce, chilli, lemon/lime, Palm sugar coming through on a whole duck breast cooked to perfection..... The other starter some excellent melt in your mouth ribs... More

I went to this restaurant with a group of friends for an evening meal. We loved it! Service was prompt, there was a great atmosphere and the food was just beautiful! They made it extra special for my friends birthday which made a good evening even better. It's a little further walk from the town centre but definitely worth it!... More

We planned to go here for a birthday meal, we love thai food but had not been out for a thai meal for a long time. I went on trip advisor and after researching a few thai restaurants in bath, we decided on thai basil. What a great choice, the service was warm and friendly and the food was fresh... More

Lovely evening last night, just as good as all my previous memories dining here. Staff are super friendly and attentive. Food is authentic, presentation of dishes is lovely and adds the personal touch. If you have room after mains, coconut ice cream is to die-for!!!! Keep up the great work Thai Basil!
