This is without question my favourite Thai restaurant anywhere in the world. The food is to die for, the service is truly excellent and the mood of the restaurant right on the money. If you don't eat anywhere else in Bangkok, eat here!!!!

We were given the options of what to make a few days before and all of the ingredients were cut and measured out for us when... More

While there I had dinner every night, at a different restaurant except one or two repeats, the majority of them serving Thai dishes, a few of which were very good. On the next-to-last day of my visit in August I ate at Basil, and had the best... More

Nice restaurant in 5 star hotel conflicting with plastic street-food-like menu with images, a pretty clumsy service and Western-adapted Thai food. Overrated.

Food tasted ok, but nothing more. I think some previous review was spot on about the spice being toned down for westerners. There are a number of things we... More
