Description: The restaurant is founded in 2011. It is new to this town but Thai restaurants are not new to our experiences. We are a group of people who are passionate about food and have an overwhelming desire to create our own family restaurant where we can cook a good quality of food in a good atmosphere. We started our dream by renting a restaurant in Shipley, and then stepped forward to found our own restaurant in Skipton, the small historic market town in North Yorkshire with beautiful scenery, this makes it a perfect place for us.---Our Promises--- We promise to prepare and cook every dish with pride, using the finest ingredients and vegetables sourced locally, to create not only delicious but also healthy food for our customers.The tasty food is cooked by a chef of vast experience who worked for many years in a 5-star hotel in Thailand and in Thai restaurants in the UK. Not only do we aim to make tasty food we also strive to provide a friendly and excellent service in a smart and intimate dinning atmosphere.Our high standards of cleanliness are proven by achieving a5-star rating in Food Hygiene. We also have an excellent reputation given by our customers on Trip Advisor which ranks us amongst the top restaurants in Skipton. You can trust us to ensure that you will spend a wonderful time here, and you will want to come back again and again.

Nice atmosphere, fast & courteous service, and most importantly, excellent food. I had the green curry & my mom had the massaman. Both were delicious. Definitely recommend

“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2014

We visited the Thai Basil for the first time, and we were not disappointed. It is nicely decorated, with the waitresses wearing national dress. We ordered a mixed starter for 2 to share, which came with 3 dipping sauces. It was delicious, and not too out facing. For mains I had a lamb shank mossaman with egg fried rice, and my husband had a spicey king prawn stir fry with egg fried rice. Both meals were delicious, and the service was very good. We will be going again asap. The only slightly negative aspect is that we found the drinks to be very expensive. Two small bottles of beer, and 2 medium wines were approx £18. They also do takeaways, so we will be trying one this week. Can,t wait...

“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

I've eaten here a few times, and have absolutely enjoyed every visit.
The restaurant has a lovely feel to it, and the staff are always very welcoming. I have loved each of the different dishes I have tried here - they are always so fresh and full of flavour!
As I said, I have been here several times, sometimes as a couple, and at other times with friends - no matter the size of the group the food and service are always a really high standard.
This is one of those places that I will keep coming back to

“Taste with an Oriental taste.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Excellent choice of dishes, mild or hot. Well presented and tasted extremely fresh.
Although we were not rushed in any way service could have been better with a little tlc.
