About
Basil Box drew its inspiration from travels abroad while venturing down the bustling streets of Southeast Asia. Brimming with life and flurries of people going to and fro, we found refuge in the form of aromatic smells wafting from vendors peddling carts of fresh, flavourful ingredients. We wanted to bring these vibrant colours, tastes, spices, and aromas abroad. Our name Basil Box: Basil - a prominent ingredient in Southeast Asian cuisine. Box - replicates the convenience of eating your meal in a portable and eco-friendly bagasse (sugarcane fibre) box.

Best lunch buffet in town. I love their chaats and sweets in particular. Last time I was there for a buffet lunch, I had several servings of chaat and worried looks from the servers... LOL
