This is the place to visit when you need to refresh and take a breather from the busy city whilst at the same time enjoy some nicely prepared and presented food. We called in for lunch and thought that it presented good value for money along with good service. A good selection of food including vegetarian options all make for... More

We recently visited Bath and had meals on consecutive nights at Thai Basil and Yum Yum Thai. In that comparison, Thai Basil lost. We liked: Traditional decor and ambience (except it was near empty when we ate early - though that was doubtless due to the World Cup Final that evening) We didn't like: Aircon inefficient or not switched on...

I have been to Thai Basil several times last year, and I really love it! The food is exceptional and servings are generous. And the staff is efficient and friendly. This is definitely a place to visit: I have invited many different guests there and they are always very happy with their experience at Thai Basil.

I enjoyed the lunchtime special, which was a huge three courses. I was pleased they had several vegetarian options. There were not a lot of people around. The service was prompt and the food was good. It was excellent value for money.

Friendly staff, excellent food, not too pricy. Had quite a long wait inbetween starter and main, but not too bad. They were very busy. Quite a walk out of town centre, but it's worth a visit for a good quality meal.

After a very disappointing starters at Thai Balcony we decided to ditch our mains and went to our usual Thai Basil for main course ... 10/10 food, ambience, service. Papaya salad was spot on, we tried a squid salad which I would definitely recommend!

Went to Thai Basil for my birthday and it was fabulous. It has a great atmosphere and is clearly very popular despite being just outside the town centre (the Italian next door as empty). The people were lovely and surprised both me and my wife when they sang happy birthday with a ice-cream cake and candle. I say it surprised... More

We went in here as it was on the top Thai restaurants in Bath, and we were truly impressed! The food was incredible, the authenticity and flavours were fantastic. The people serving were Lovely, helpful and we never had to ask for anything twice. We now go in here a lot and enjoy it every time!

We came here on a return visit to Bath, after 15 years, as we used to come here often when it was the Salathai. So glad we returned, as the food was excellent and it's obviously popular with Bath residents, as Midge Ure and family dropped in for dinner as well.
