Basil was a great place to have our last dinner in Bangkok--the Massaman curry with lamb was rich in flavor and absolutely delicious. We really enjoyed the soft shell crab as well! The mojito bar was right next to us and very fun to choose from all the fruit flavors. Service was more than friendly, with people throughout our meal... More

Like the food and environment a lot, but the service was a little slow (might because of a big party dinner). Saw everyone is giving a high rate on the service, so should probably give another try...

Just a quick note to remind all travelers to try the upscale Thai food at this restaurant. I have traveled all over Thailand and eaten in hundreds of Thai restaurants and I can say without hesitation that they do it right in this one.

My husband and I feel like visiting "Basil", because we can not forget the taste of Yam Som O by Basil. We think this Yam Som O is number one! This time we invited our valuable guest there, and she liked it very much, too. When we order, we can tell the staff the degree of spicy. And if we... More

All of the dishes we ordered were excellent in taste and exemplary in presentation. Only exception would be the Mango and sticky rice, which should rather stay a street food dish. Service was friendly. Setting of the restaurant was pleasant. Rather expensive, however not over the top for the quality offered. Overall it was a great dinner.

Staying in Sukhumvit

Neighborhood Profile
Sukhumvit
With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys) where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for a lively night out, soi 4 for naughty nightlife and soi 21 for world-class shopping at Terminal 21. It's hard to cover everything this area has to offer in on day, so be sure to take your time. Sukhumvit is heavily congested with traffic during day and night, so getting from A to B is most convenient using the BTS Skytrain right above it.
