Went there for Valentines, for a Valentines Dinner package. Food was great, the ambience is great, but they did not think thru how they seat their Valentine's guest's vs. regular guests. So, we had a noisy, walk-in couple, who were seated next to us, which ruined the nite. I did complain to the manager and then, they changed our seats... More

Came here as we were staying at the Sheraton grande hotel. I think the food was exceptionally good and staff so attentive. You can choose a set menu or go a la carte.

We were staying at the Sheraton Grande and decided to try some of our hotel's restaurants after reading many rave reviews. Basil didn't disappoint. The restaurant has an impressively beautiful setting (the pics don't do it justice), serene ambiance, great service and the most delicious Thai food we've ever had. We were treated to a complimentary starter which was heavenly... More

Basil has been a favourite for many years and the quality of the food continues to impress as does the service. At Basil's you get excellent Thai food, immaculate service and more.

Over the past few years we have eaten at Basils several times and we know it can be hit and miss. This time the decor looked particularly dated and the food was poor. The satay was quite tasteless and a touch undercooked. We then had seabass in tamarind sauce which was better then the satay but nothing special. We found... More
