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. From the lady who took our reservation, to our waiter and waitress, the overall ambiance and of course, the food itself. We liked the idea of ordering from a IPad. It... More

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). The satay ruam - mixed grilled satay of chicken, prok and beef served with... More

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

So we've chosen BASIL. At they price they do charge you're expecting something, a kind of experience. Yes, the interior is nice, modern but... More

Thai fine dining with a very reasonable price tag. Despite being concerned that this retaurant was inside one of a chain of hotels, we found that as soon as we walked in, you didn't feel like you were in a hotel. The atmosphere was great, with friendly and helpful staff, and we thoroughly enjoyed the food. We'll definitely be back.
