“5 Star Service”
Reviewed September 2, 2014

Our visit was an early evening one, midweek. The restaurant was quiet when we arrived but by the time we were ready for leaving it was much more busy. The quality of the food was very good; between the five of us we had a mixture of Chinese and Thai. The waitresses were amazing, ready to bring you your next course or prepared to wait if you wanted a rest. A particular plus point for this restaurant was that they were able to give good advice on allergies, for example gluten free or dairy free. We liked the atmosphere of the place, which is not large, so I'd advise booking beforehand. Parking is available opposite, or there is on-street parking nearby. I hope to return here soon and would heartily recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes Chinese or Thai food.

“lovely food and great staff :)”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

We visited again last weekend and everything was just as good - lovely food. My Szechuan vegetarian dish was lovely, as were the ribs for starters. The staff are always really attentive and not thin on the ground. Will definitely visit again. Very reasonable prices... We didn't have it this time but they do a main course dish for £1 sometimes (one pre-set dish which they advertise on the day in the restaurant - you can't choose a particular dish as it is already chosen) if you spend over £25 (we have seen this at the weekend sometimes anyway) so that can work out well. Definitely want to try more Thai dishes at this place as there are unusual ones on the menu and not all the standard ones in most Thai places... and the Chinese dishes are always lovely here.

Reviewed July 23, 2014

So looking for a place to eat in Outwood, with so much choice!

Chinese food/Thai food? I had two courses of Thai food which was fantastic, my dining partner had Chinese was of equal quality

The service and surroundings were also very good.

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

“The One We Judge Others By”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

We have been going to this restaurant since it opened and have never had a meal which is less than excellent. Whenever we go to any other Chinese restaurant we can't help but compare it to Sweet Basil and very few come up to this standard. The staff are amongst the friendliest and most helpful we have come across.

If you like Chinese food you will not be disappointed
