Get there right on opening if you want to sit and eat straight away, as by 6pm you've got a decent wait on a typical crowded weekend night. We got the beef masaman curry. Soooo tender, and an excellent portion size. The penang curry was...More

This has to be the best Laos/Thai food in Sydney. The food is absolutely amazing, an assault to the taste buds. The Duck salad is to die for. The BBQ ox tongue was amazing and so were the other dishes we ordered. The restaurant was...More

Have been going to Holy Basil for quite a few years now and it never disappoints. Consistently freshly made food and always great service. Will keep coming back!

Food is good, not to salty and spicy. Tom Yum soup is amazing. Curry is tasty too. Beef tongue is not too good, a bit chewy

Nice environment, tasty food and great service. We've gone there as a group and we shared whatever we ordered. Everything was delicious, but Thai rice with prown was the best.

They serves Good authentic Thai food. The portions are Big. And their fried icecream is yum. Recommend that you book for a table or come at a non busy period.

As always - BUSY! And waiting still around 30-40mins for dinner to get a table. For newbies, sign your name on the waiting list - although reservation is accepted for 8 or more people. More staff attending and more efficient in managing the wait and...More
