We visit Thai Basil every time we are in Skipton and it never disappoints. The food is superb and there is excellent service to go along with it. We will definitely go again next time we visit. .

The food was very flavoursome. Definitely rated it highly along with other Thai food I have had. A more traditional atmosphere rather than modern. Service was good.

Excellent food, excellent service and excellent price. Only criticism would be that they could have cleared the litter from near the front door. Would definitely visit again.

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.

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.
