Visited in October for a meal, portions seemed quite large which kind of justified the amount paid. Gave free prawn crackers and ice cream but I would rather have a cheaper price to pay instead of "complimentary" items. However, when I ordered a takeaway the food lacked flavour and wasn't anything like when I visited.

Food was very very good indeed. Service was quick and attentive. Quite pricey though at roughly £30 per head. Ordered from the Chinese section. Didn't have anything from the Thai menu.

Just had to say thank you for our takeaway last night. It was delivered within 20 minutes. The food was piping hot (including the soup) and all was delicious, particularly the sweet and sour chicken which was succulent. You really are still the best, keep up the good work!

Lighting is terrible, food is average, service was ok. There is nothing special about this place. It needs a re vamp to compete with today's current market

We had a family meal which was very good, we had a mixture of dishes, very plentiful and extremely tasty. The staff were welcoming and polite, and we look forward to our next visit, it's well worth a visit.

Another great meal at Sweet Basil. Their wonton and vegetable soup is the best. If you enjoy Chinese food, you won't find better then this excellent restaurant.
