We only discovered Sweet Basil a few months ago, despite having a commercial premises just a few doors away. The food is always extremely fresh and very tasty. The salt and pepper squid is amazing; melt-in-your mouth, with lovely light batter. The crispy duck is also really tasty, as is the seaweed. We always go home with a goody bag!... More

My friend and I pop in here regularly for dinner. It's one of our favourite restaurants. They usually do a nice offer if you spend more than £25 on food you can buy another specified dish of the day for only a pound. My favourite is the sweet and sour chicken but every dish I've tried has been wonderful. The... More

They sat us (a table of 6 adults) at peak time on a Saturday night without booking, which was impressive. We had the whole of the upstairs to ourselves, then about 10 minutes later another table of 4 arrived after us. We tried to get the waitresses attention to let her know we were ready to order our food, but... More

We have been here many times and have never been disappointed. The waitress always remembers the three of us and greets us with a warm and friendly welcome. It was a busy Friday night and a lively atmosphere. The starters are delicious, spring rolls and Thai fish cakes. Our mains consisted of sweet and sour cod, sweet and sour chicken... More

A real star that we have been keeping quite about for a good few years now. However it would be unfare not to give it its place at the head of all the other restaurants we have reviewed. This is consistently the best restaurant we have eaten at, the quality of the food, cooking, presentation & sever ice is always... More

This was not the first time that I had visited this restaurant. Friendly greeting and made to feel very welcome. The waitresses were attentive and helpful about the menu. Two of the four of us have food allergies and the staff are always careful in checking if they are not sure about the ingredients. We have never had any problems... More
