Recommended Thai restaurant. They serve variety of Thai dishes. One of my favorite is Thai noodle such as Thai boat noodle and Thai spicy noodle soup.

We made a hasty decision and went for the set meal A which was very good but we wished we'd been more patient and chosen own selection from the extensive menu. The mixed starters were excellent and my favourite was the chicken satay. Of the main dishes, the duck with tamarind was the outstanding dish with a lovely rich sauce.... More

After decades in Hong Kong with amazing Thai food and traveling to Thailand, we usually look for Thai when we travel. We are often disappointed, but not with Thai Basil in Bath. It was authentic, delicious Thai served by friendly Thai people. The Tom Yum Goong was especially delicious as were the curries, eggplant and shrimp dishes. Delicious.

Today six of us gathered here for a family lunch while out for the day in Bath. I had reserved this restaurant as we all enjoy Thai food, and as it was Christmas week expected everywhere to be full at lunchtime. We arrived at 1pm and were immediately shown to our reserved table. The decor is very nice and there... More

Good food, really reminded of Thai food I ate when I was there. The waiter is very nice, but when a bigger group arrived she got a little lost and took a bit too long to bring the check. Lost one star for service in my evaluation, but still a recommendable restaurant.

I have never written a negative review before, but sorry to say that I must after this terrible takeaway Thai meal. Totally overdone/basically burnt prawn crackers, TINY, overdone sticky rice which was totally inedible - ended up having to make our own rice at home because you could barely slice the sticky rice up. Extremely thin, watery rice, and unappealing... More

Couldn't fault it! Great tasting food and the service was superb. Although they were not too busy with people eating in the restaurant they seemed to have a healthy flow of takeaway orders leaving the kitchen. Despite this our food came quickly, was perfect and the service was great. Great value for money too!

I decided to try Thai Basil Restaurant rather than the other Thai nearby where I stay. The restaurant itself very authentic and the food very tasty just like what REAL Thai people to die for. If you craving Thai Food with authentic atmosphere and taste during your stay in Bath. I would recommend this one.
