“Tasty Thai in Basel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

It's hard to find flavorful food in Basel but malai Thai does a good job. The pad Thai was very tasty and to be recommended. Lunch prices are around 20chf and include soup or spring roll.

“Great Thai Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

I took 2 colleagues who had never tried Thai food before and they loved it. Great service, great food. Relaxed atmosphere. And very good value. I will definitely visit again when I'm in Basel.

“Great food, iffy service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2013

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.

“excellent thai restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2013

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.

“Tasty Thai Food....lacking atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2013 via mobile

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
