We took the green Thai curry. The dish was good yet not amazing. We also took 5 dl of tape water which was charged 6.20.- (what kind of water is it at this price !?) When I ask to pay with the credit card, the waiter asked me to enter the tip. I found this very impolite and unprofessional. Overall... More

The Lily's restaurant is great for easy Asian food for both lunch, dinner and take away. It can be challenging in the evenings as it can be very loud. The team is nice and attentive. Service can be slow at times.

Restaurant serves dishes from Asia Pacific Countries, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. The Asian dishes I tasted were good and slightly modified to a western pallet. The coco Cota which is coconut custard with passion fruit was delicious.

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
