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. Although Pomelo wasn't on the menu the friendly staff said it was no problem to prepare a Pomelo salad - so we ordered Tom Yang Gung and Pomelo... More

Punctiliously clean real chefs prepare the ingredients for every dish here. As an opener, you are presented with leaves of hot basil with small pots of additions such as peanuts, chutney, herbs, dried shrimp, onion and you roll them up. The main dishses are generous serves, so don't over-order. The degree of spicijness can be adjusted, but unless there is... 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

Good food in great atmosphere, but too expensive for what you get. There are better price/quality restaurants in Bangkok.
