Basil was probably the most expensive meal we had in Thailand (although still not unreasonable) but what it offered was authentic Thai food of a very high quality with surroundings, service and presentation in keeping with the kind of fine dining experience that westerners are accustomed to. highly recommended - would be well placed at the beginning of a trip...

Go to Basil even though we don't always stay at Sheraton. Been going every year since it opened. Ladies always greet us like old friends and the food is pretty authentic. Love the amuse bouche of betel leaves. All dishes seem to be outstanding and I love the new iPads as menus. Anything with tamarind sauce is to die for... More

Very elegant service in an expensive hotel in the business district. I wasn't staying in the area, but made the trip to Sukhumvit based on plugs in sundry guidebooks. It was a very nice meal--beautifully-presented spring rolls and duck as a main course. The service was impeccable. However, it was @$75 for one glass of wine, some spring rolls, and... More

My wife and I dined at Basil last night after a cocktail or two at Bar Su on the ground floor. In every respect, this restaurant did not disappoint.

We went here on our 1st evening in Bangkok. After a long journey it was a very relaxing place to be. We were surprised that there was only one table occupied, but that was probably because we were late. Although everything was great. We were positively surprised by the nice appetizer and explanation of the dish, it was fun and... More

I have had dinner here twice during my stay at Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit. Whilst others have commented that the food here is too tame, not spicy enough and modified to suit the taste buds of tourists, the food here was good for me (as a tourist).

In a city where Thai food is everywhere, while the ambiance of this restaurant is nice, the food is very much prepared with the foreign tourist in mind, which as a local resident is not what I generally look for. Don't expect to find very spicy food here or whole steamed fishes served over a fire here, but what you... More
