Surprise discovery in Hat Yai suburbs!

We took a tuk tuk out to Thai Basil after seeing it on Trip Advisor - and it was well worth the inevitable haggling with the driver!

If you love pizza with thin crust and spaghetti dishes, this is the place. It's hard to find a nice western food restaurant in Hatyai and I think this place is the best. The only thumbdown is the restroom : it needs to be renovated. Also, you may need to apply a mosquitoes repellent before entering this restaurant.

This place was hard to come by. The tuk tuk driver couldn't locate it as it was within the inner streets. Thankfully we finally got there as it was well worth it. Layout is cosy & simple. Service is attentive & friendly. Menu was quite extensive. Everything we tried was very good & rich in flavor. The 7 of us... More

There is too much of italian and french kitchen in this restaurant, but also thai; i ate a superior level of food but not expensive like i thought before entering in... More

Duck Breast with Foie Gras with Creamy Mash Potato, on orange mustard is the best I ever had! I would expect to pay a lot more than what I did - for the food quality. Service, however; was not best. I am a very fussy client. I don't like the fact that they use cracked plates and food that don't... More

Owned by a very passionate experienced Thai chef who has worked in many fine dining establishments around the world, Basil offers very good Mediterranean Thai Fusion food with a good selection of wines. A must visit if you are in Hat Yai. We still miss this place and look forward to dining here again in future!

I have stopped over in this Southern Thai town for many years now, and have always struggled to find good Asian fussion food. I gave this restaurant a try after checking various reviews on Trip Advisor, and wasn't sorry that I did. Service was good. Food quantity and quality was good.

All dishes are good quality, creamy and tasty but not outstanding. Many choices of wines to select. Location is not quite good, quite small. Price is reasonable.

Came by to the restaurant and having high expectations after reading it from Trip Advisor. Probably because I'm from Penang that is full of wonderful food. Though I would say the food is okay but I had expected more from it. Another thing to note, the cappuccino really lacks the taste of a cappuccino. It tasted more like black coffee... More
