If you are in the area you must Visit it! Delicious and authentic thai food! *They don't serve alcohol and on Saturday night usually you have to queue for long time - worth the wait!

What can I say? my cousin discovered me the place. More recently, I think the last 2 years, they have made works to make it bigger. The food is good, the service great and the price is according. From all the thai places or "thai wannabe" places in London, this is the best, believe me. Maybe there are 1 or... More

Went with my family to Spicy Basil with a recommendation from my work colleague as I like Thai food. I can rate five star rating for this amazing Restaurent. Although it's small but really busy.

Visited a few times, when I called to confirm where they brought halal meat from. I couldn't get the information needed, other then that the food is good.

If I ever live in London. This is my regular hide out. A beautiful plate of delicious Phat Thai for £6. Most dishes, a full meal goes for similar prices but it's not the price that attracted me. It's the hustle n bustle of people walking into this no frills, cafe style restaurant that is also jammed packed with customers.... More
