Really enjoyable evening

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.

Myself and my partner have been to the Thai basil many times over the years we have lived here and we can confidently say we have never had cause to regret it. Whether you are popping in for an express/cheap lunch or going with a group of friends for full meal, the quality of the food and the service is... More

The food is awesome, especially the thai curry. Order in advance as it takes quite some time for the food to arrive

The food here was quite nice and overall we enjoyed until the bill arrived and I realised I had been charged for a second bowl of prawn crackers! Outrageous eh and I informed the waitress that the manager was tight and I would not tip or ever go again as I had never heard such drivvel. Beware of hidden and... More

We dined at Thai Basil for lunch but I'm not sure what ingredients they are using in the green curry. It's a very strange consistency. Gave me a stomach ache. Great value, but I'd pay more for higher quality food.
