Excellent food, the chicken satays were amazingly cooked, the steak main (weeping tiger) was beautiful. Genuinely one of Basingstoke's best independent restaurants.

We visited The Lime Leaf last Friday for the first and last time. The quality of the food was appalling with the sizzling duck being greasy, fatty and stringy. The Thai green curry was a mass of over creamy stodge. To top it all we asked our waitress who turned out to be the owner how's business and she spent... More

We've been going to the Lime Leaf since it opened and it never fails to be a lovely visit. The food is lovely and fragrant and always top quality. Massaman Curry a personal favourite. The wine is also excellent and I'd recommend the house white! The staff are attentive, polite and eager to please and I couldn't recommend The Lime... More

Popped into here and had a spot of lunch with my partner on a Friday and had a table outside so can't really comment on the restaurant inside. Was greeted by a very polite gentleman and ordered coke and lemonade as both needed to drive and found the glass a bit on the small side but hey ho. Starter of... More

We regularly travel along the M3 past Basingstoke and on a trip back from Dorset we looking for a Thai meal. The Lime Leaf is not too far from the M3 junction so we thought we'd give it a go. Parking was easy in a car park behind it. We stayed downstairs which I believe is more cafe style than... More

Just reminding travellers to Basingstoke and locals alike that we have an excellent Thai restaurant here. Went again after a big day our last Thursday and the Masaman Curry is just the best ever. Warning: Portions can be LARGE and a set Menu may be more than you need to eat!

Lots of people I know really like this restaurant. And I can't seem to figure out why. The service is mediocre, the food is reasonable though, but not amazing. Not the best Thai food I have eaten, nor the worst. Just somewhere in the middle. So if that's what you are aiming for, then go for it!

Been recommended this place by my parents and many others around town, so thought I'd give it a try... and my first Thai meal. Phoned and booked in advanced, unfortunately we were late due to delayed trains but the restaurant were more than accommodating.

Well Thai food is not always to everyone's taste, often too spicy, but here, yes you can get spicy hot but you can also get much more gentle dishes, which have elicate flavours, different form other far eastern cooking. This place is small but the food is lovely and the staff are equally lovely, nothing too much trouble, and that... More
