“Great food, iffy service”

Went here with a colleague whilst in Basel for work. It was a Wednesday evening and to be fair the place was very quiet. I ordered a soup and main - both were very tasty but I'm fairly sure that the main should have included tofu which it didn't. After finishing we were going to have a last drink before getting the bill... but basically we were told no you need to go now we are closed. So not great service. I may go again because its convenient for where I am located when in Basel and has plenty of vegetarian options but it will not be first on the radar.

One of my favorite places for lunch! Excellent thai food, friendly service and fair price! Try the red curry and have a thai ice tea! It can be quite packed, so you might need a reservation.

Went on a Saturday night, the place was a little deserted even at 8pm, only 4 tables filled.

Its a shame, because the food is well cooked, fresh and balanced. The beef penang curry was especially good, as were the satay starters. Definitely worth visiting, in a city which lacks good South East Asian food, it would be a shame if this place disappeared

Only down side....the most confusing menu I ever encountered....non-sequential numbers, random photos, unclear sections

If you enjoy Thai food you will not be disappointed. One block from the Ramada Plaza Basel.
