Great Thai cuisine, good ambiance and attentive service

This little Thai restaurant tucked out of the way in Bath is a nice little experience. The food is very good and the service is super attentive. Due to location it's never at capacity and they offer takeout (with a discount I believe). The ambiance feels a little dated, but this is lost in the... read more

We had heard good things about Thai Basil, so we thought we would give it a try. The staff were very pleasant and attentive. We sat down on a Friday evening at about 7pm. We were the first diners in but it soon filled up. The food was great. The starters were well presented and very tasty. We like to... More

We were given gift vouchers as a present, and were so impressed with the food. The atmosphere inside is great. The food is delicious, and the portion sizes are spot on. Would recommend visiting the Thai Basil to anyone.

To take home I ordered stir fried assorted seafood - king prawns, scallops, squids, mussels with thai herbs, roasted chilli paste and holy basil leaves. Sounded great. The reality wasn't. There were 2 prawns with not much king about them, 2 mussels, 3 unassuming pieces of squid and 1 rather miserable looking scallop and all bulked out with a mishmash... More

The food was fine. We were disappointed by the salads, which were drowned in dressing and lacked the crunch & bite we associate with Thai salads. We were there on a Saturday night (we were four) and by 8pm it was almost impossible to hear each other talk. There was a (noisy) table of 10 one side of us and... More

Food arrived within timeframe advised, 50 mins. Starters of fish cakes were nice and satay chicken fine. Pad thai was rather poor with hardly any chicken, been curd, etc just a mass of noodles. Would not recommend. Veg curry was however very good. Not quite sure overall rating then some nice food but could be improved decidedly in the ingredients.
