Sweet Basil is a nice surprise for a Thai restaurant in Zürich! During the week they offer four different daily dishes, as well as a la carte. With a restaurant that showcases 'You are what you eat!' at Sweet Basil the focus is predominantly on using very fresh, basic seasonal ingredients with full attention to authentic preparation, and celebrates lighter...

As my family and I attempted to eat ramen at Ikoo and they refused to seat the six of us, we headed down the street and decided to give Sweet Basil a try. We were greeted with warm welcome and the waitress immediately made space for us. Being from Bay Area where Thai food is just about everywhere, I really... More

Just went to this little place after work, with already high expectations as I had seen the good ratings on TripAdvisor and know the already very high quality of food in Zürich. Those expectations were obviously too low as I had a moment of true awe when I tasted my meal. Truly delicious, flavourful, tasty and filling but also light... More

Had a great yellow curry with vegatables and chicken and a good glas of Riesling on the side. My boyfriend had noodles with beef and broccoli. Simple but tasty. Not cheap, but affordable and good service.

It's always a pleasure to enjoy the sensational food, the friendly staff and the most funny Boss. I can't give a recommendation what to eat because it all tastes incredible. For dinner it's recommend to reserve a table.

They have a nice selection of thai curries and the service was good. The place is really quite tiny, so make a reservation beforehand. Very nicely situated near Stauffacher tram station. All of us had a different dish and they were all equally excellent. A bit expensive, but typical Zurich ...
