Very good Thai restaurant with nice service! Tried the green curry with chicken and it was tasty and flavorful. Would recommend !

If you are looking for authentic Thai food, this not the place. The choice of dishes lacks imagination. We had four dishes and three of them included the same vegetables. Fortunately we ordered the duck breast with the sauce separately. The shrimp wrap was quite ok. However all in all nothing exciting, very few Thai herbs

Very good Thai food, big portions. Nice relaxed sort of retro ambiance. And when you don't realise they accidentally short changed you, they call you back to give you your money.

This is my favorite asian restaurant in Basel. The food is good, the staff is friendly and the prices are ok. One thing I particularly like is that for many dishes you have the option to select between different meats (chicken/beef...) shrimps and even tofu. So if you are vegetarian or just prefer not to eat meat you have lots... More

Very convenient booking system on line, super easy for us non German speakers. The menu is quite limited in terms of choice but what we had was very good. The restaurant is obviously an old school swiss restaurant serving swiss food but I'm sure over time this will fill up with Thai niknaks. Overall very good.

Excellent food, managed by having a small menu and offering the choice of meat/vegetables/spice to your taste. Nice open-air section in a quieter area and the prices for Basel are good indeed making this an ideal choice for great food at a price below the city-centre offering. Informed and polite servers who are willing to offer suggestions and knowing their... More

We love to come here. The Thai food is excellent and moderately priced (for Basel). Our favourites are Nam Tok and the soups Tom Kah and Tom Yam. The service is really friendly as well.

This is the thai restaurant which could be founf in the NT areal before. The thai food is really good, the service great and friendly and all of this for not too much money. There is also a possibility to sit outside in summer. Minor point: interior is not so cozy

The people who now run the Nordbahnhof used to own a tiny place on the other side of the river with only about five tables! Now in the new location there is enough space both inside and out in the very pleasant garden. Service is very friendly and the food is delicious with a large selection of classic dishes to... More
