I go there very often. The food is always good, people super nice and it's quick! You don't have time to go: they also deliver food at home! Don't hesitate!

There are not many places that are open on Sundays in Basel but this one is - and always very busy. We'd recommend you avoid the curries, but the fish cake starter is very tasty, and so are the noodle soup combi, pad thai, pad si yu and bai kapao.

i love lilys. it's got something for everyone, the food comes pretty fast for a Swiss restaurant, and the tables are long and you sit near people you don't know. Lots of options for all types of tastes, multiple asian options, but don't go here looking for fine dining - it's great for a fairly quick lunch

My Rating i s 3.5 for this but as it is not possible to provide 3.5, I give it a 3 rating. I have been to Lily's a lot of time and it has served me good food always. I do find veg options like Dal overpriced. This is not a completely Thai Restaurant and it has lot of options... More

If you are in Basel and looking for some Thai food this is your best bet. Although it won't win any awards it has good staff, decent food and reasonable prices for Switzerland.

I live in Basel and haven't been to Lily's for a long time without realizing why. After I went again this time I remember: The waiters/waitresses working there are not friendly at all. We felt like we have to hurry when ordering the meals. Still eating starter, they brought us main meal and placed it on the middle of the... More

Been a regular here for years and had to stop being a patron as the service got really bad - they just throw menus at the table and have a horrible attitude. I ordered for take out (pad Thai) and they have reduced the quantities. It's still sufficient but I used to save it for 2 meals and now can... More

Beware, the new supervisor lady @ Lily's is rude and impolite! We are regular customers @ Lily's and we always liked the food there even though the ambiance is not that great. It was shocking to see her rude behavior when she just dumped an extra glass (upon my request) on the table with no words. When I told her... More

Ordered Pad Thai, Beef Salad and Red Duck Curry and was quite satisfied with the food quality and portions. The curry had a surprisingly large quantity of duck meat. The beef in the salad was cubed and sauteed before adding the sauces so it was a bit more cooked than are the sliced beef salads typically. Pad Thai was nice... More
