Ask me last year and I would clearly recommend this place for a good taste/atmosphere/price. However last visit this year was somewhat disappointing. The menu has been changed to less interesting choices (imho) and the taste wasn't as good as I remembered it from earlier. I should probably give it another try in some months, but so far would not... More

If you like asian exotic food, then Lily's is the place to go in Kleinbasel. And also the styling in the restaurant give it an ambient that makes people / visitors want to connect to each other, smile and just enjoy a great time with great food. My favorite at Lily's is the vietnams coffee after I had the great... More

When in Basel and craving Thai I do frequent this restaurant. It's generally always busy but because you share tables it's never been an issue to be seated. There's a large outdoor eating area which is nice to people watch. There's good size portions and the service is good and quick.

Have eaten here many times over the 16 years I have been working in Basel. Seating outside in summer is a great way to spend an evening, good food and drinks, watching the world go by. Service is quick and friendly, the food cooked to order, arrives hot at the table.

I lived in Basel for several years and this was one of my favourite places to go to. Is decently priced (for Basel/Swiss prices) and the food is pretty tasty. Service is also good. In my opinion, it's one of the best Asian restaurants in Basel. Reccommendation: try the chicken fried rice or the pad thai noodles

We have been going to Lily's for years and have always had great food and good service. I have not been for awhile though, and this time there was a huge difference. We were in a group of seven. One of the servers was angry to walk back from the kitchen to our table when she had passed over one... More

We were alerted to this Thai restaurant by a helpful front office staff at our hotel. It was just a 5 minute walk to the restaurant from our hotel. It turned out that it was not a Thai restaurant as such but rather an Asian restaurant. The range of dishes here were from the following countries: Indonesia, Thailand, India, Vietnam... More

As one of the reviewers has put it aptly - it is a little bit of everything from the east. I have been to this restaurant several times and its a very consistent experience every time as it relates to food, ambience and service. First - it is almost always crowded. And in light of the crowd, I think the... More
