“A must-Thai in Boracay”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Though it was the height of summer, we ordered everything spicy, like the Tom Yum soup and the pomelo salad. It was perfect, from the sourness of the soup to the refreshing tang of the salad, even the spring rolls and Pad Thai had something new to say. Situated near the back of D'Mall, it's not the most scenic of spots but once inside you won't be lacking for things to cool you down, with the plentiful fans and fruity beverages on offer. The herbs and spices inherent to the cuisine are all fresh and abundant, and these are what really give the dishes their great flavor. The chef is from Thailand, you can't get more authentic than that.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed 20 June 2014 via mobile

We had our first meal here on arriving in Boracay and we're very pleased with the experience. Great food, friendly staff (the friendliness quotient was very high across the Philippines).

Would have cheerfully gone back for more, but there were way too many options around.

“Authentic Thai Restaurant”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Located in Boracay's popular D'Mall, Thai Basil Restaurant serves a big variety of delicious and authentic Thai dishes. Quality and taste reach an absolutely extraordinary high level.
This is definitely a "must visit" restaurant during your stay on Boracay Island in order to make it a tasty one.
