Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Set lunch meal with 2 courses served between 12 and 2. The food was lovely and great value BUT we felt very rushed and pushed to leave at,/before 2 o'clock. We arrived 1.25 ish. Not a very relaxed time to talk with friends.

We had an amazing meal. The quality in the past has been variable with different owners but whatever was going on before this Thai restaurant is excellent now. We shared chicken satay and pork ribs to start, the satay sauce was subtle but still nice....We had various Panang curries for mains (chicken, prawn and vegetable) and coconut rice. It was all top class - great portions and really tasty. The coconut rice was the best I’ve had. My veg parang with packed with a huge variety of veg which was excellent. The ladies serving us were great and the whole meal was really enjoyable.More

Recently had a take away from Thai Basil with friends and we were all very pleased with the quality of our take away. My partner has a nut allergy and the care taken in the questioning over her allergies and the oils they have cooked...the food in impressed me and gave us a lot of confidence in what we were getting. Our friends from Hong Kong (now living in Bristol) visited us and we decided to take them to the Thai for lunch on Saturday. The food was again first class and our friends, who have travelled a lot in Thailand and Vietnam as well as having been Hong Kong residents said the food was genuinely authentic and could even tell us the oils that their meals had been cooked in. they said they had not found a restaurant in Bristol, up until now, doing Asian food that impressed them but would happily return here.More

Delicious lunch at such a reasonable price. Great service too. Highly recommended. This restaurant has recently changed hands and they've decorated and opened up the garden space too. The atmosphere and the décor is so much better than previously. The food was delicious too.

Nueked fishcakes could have been nice but so over microwaved they were rubber eggs texture. 3 main course all over cooked microwaved rubbery chicken. Ketchup flavour in the sweet and spicy it was almost straight out of the ketchup bottle. Browned off oven chip chunks...in the chicken satay. Cold rice was reheated in the microwave. I can't understand the good reviews on the food it's awful. Can only think that loyalty from the locals keeps the ratings up. Or other reviews are from people who've never eaten a decent Thai meal. Honestly this was a very poor Chinese take out nothing about the food said Thai standards.More

We ordered a takeaway set menu for 2 @ £28 per head. I had to ring as the app was trying to charge for 3. The food was ready to be collected at the appointed time. The food was outstanding. There was only one container...of rice which was surprising. There was sufficient of the other food. It is also very expensive, but you get what you pay for. The restaurant looked great and we will certainly use it again.More

Really really really good food, the new owners have turned it around. We travel over from Chepstow regularly and frankly if it was twice the distance we would still come.

Went for a meal last night , we've been going to this restaurant for many years . We ordered a mixed starter for 2 people, it was half the size of the portion it used to be and at least a third more expensive, Tom...yum soup was average and the Thai green curry was very dry and small . Its a shame they have lowered the food standards and upped the prices so much . Disappointed visitMore

Ate on a Saturday night when the restaurant was fairly busy. The food was very good, the service was very good and we paid a good price. I can’t really say more than that! Would happily go again.

We have been here many times over the years and the food has always been consistently good and, again, it didn't dissappoint. Food was good quality and tasty. Service was fast and attentive. The decor is in need of some investment and is looking a...bit tatty. While the food has always been consistently good I won't ever be able to give 5 stars until they sort the gents toilets out which are quite frankly shameful.More
