“Very good Thai restaurant, nearly great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Called in one Saturday evening for a meal for two. The restaurant is nice with carved tables with glass tops and other nice Thai touches.
We decided on the "Basil" set menu with a mixed starter followed by a selection of four main dishes and jasmine rice. All of the dishes were very good, and the prices for the food and wine reasonable, service was a little slow in places despite the fact it wasn't that busy on this particular evening. Recommended.

“Very Tasty Lovely Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Visited Thai Basil on a quiet Monday evening with three other friends, very extensive menu, resonably priced, attentive service and the most delicious thai food. Would recommend.

“Best Thai I have had in England!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Went here on a Saturday night - booked a table for 4 people at 7pm and there were only a few tables occupied but it soon filled up and fast! The food was amazing - spring rolls, chicken skewers, prawn toast and dumplings were fantastic starters. We all really enjoyed our mains and the coffee was actually quite good too.
This is the best Thai food I have had since moving to England 2 years ago...thoroughly recommend it! Would advise you to book.

“Book early.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

This is a popular haunt with the local (we had to wait 2 hours for a table) and is not in the central part of the city but slightly off on Walcott St. The food was lovely and so were the staff. The decor however, and the toilets, needed a little attention. It was little dated but no complaints on service.

“A great find in Bath UK”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

3 of us went to Thai Basil on a Saturday night. At 6.45, we were the last table available. Loved the food! Penang Vegetables is a very good selection of fresh vegetables in a yummy sauce, mild and delicious. Lovely Chicken curry and plenty of steamed rice. For the UK, a very good price - and we had a bottle of wine!
