Went to Thai Basil with friends who were visiting Bath. We had the set menus, and had a really delicious meal - the starters were amazing, and we enjoyed the variety of main dishes on offer. Food was so tasty, especially the duck. Left with very full bellies! The staff were really friendly and were happy to adapt one of... More

Love this place second time back. Great service, quick, and great spices...Didn't eat in the restaurant but obviously the food would be the same which is great. We ended up getting three starters and four main dishes and we have dinner sorted for the next day (two of us)

Came here for a work leaving do and had an excellent time. Being vegan and eating out can be tricky but there were loads of options - I found it hard to decide! We had an absolute feast. The coconut rice is a must, and my dish of sweet & sour stir fried veggies and tofu was one of the... More

This restaurant has turned into my new fav thai restaurant in Bath! We asked for Dim sum starter, not a big - not big but great, wanna make it clear- portion but ideal for making room for the delicious curries that followed! We asked for duck and veg green curry with jasmine rice. Both delicious, spicy but eatable - you... More

All four of us were looking forward to a lovely Thai lunch and we were not disappointed. Beautifully prepared along with a delicious New Zealand wine....we went away very contented. All plates and dishes were clean and so thanks to Sue and the attentive staff...a really enjoyable time. We all recommend the main menu as there is plenty of choice.

Recommended Thai restaurant. They serve variety of Thai dishes. One of my favorite is Thai noodle such as Thai boat noodle and Thai spicy noodle soup.

We made a hasty decision and went for the set meal A which was very good but we wished we'd been more patient and chosen own selection from the extensive menu. The mixed starters were excellent and my favourite was the chicken satay. Of the main dishes, the duck with tamarind was the outstanding dish with a lovely rich sauce.... More

After decades in Hong Kong with amazing Thai food and traveling to Thailand, we usually look for Thai when we travel. We are often disappointed, but not with Thai Basil in Bath. It was authentic, delicious Thai served by friendly Thai people. The Tom Yum Goong was especially delicious as were the curries, eggplant and shrimp dishes. Delicious.

Today six of us gathered here for a family lunch while out for the day in Bath. I had reserved this restaurant as we all enjoy Thai food, and as it was Christmas week expected everywhere to be full at lunchtime. We arrived at 1pm and were immediately shown to our reserved table. The decor is very nice and there... More
