On April 8, 2016, my husband made a reservation at Basil's for our next to the last night of our Thailand vacation, November 18. The reservation was confirmed by Basil's. On November 18, we went from our hotel across the river to the Sheraton Grande for our dinner reservation that evening. Much to our surprise, we were told Basil's was... More

Presentation here is as important as the delicious Thai dishes, from the restaurant decor to the plates used to serve the food. Service is excellent.

Nice welcome. Relaxed atmosphere. Elegant yet casual place. Good service. We were the only foreigners that day for lunch. Menu is comfortably divided into regions of Thailand: you may "visit" any of the places that appeal to you based on the detailed description. We enjoyed local white wine with our meal from two different regions. A fixed-price menu allowed us... More

Robert and I had an excellent meal here before on travels to Bhutan. Our server and I bonded over health issues - she was sweet and kind. We stayed at the hotel and were only sorry we didn't have a chance to eat here again.

I had the green mango salad with crispy fish. This very good dish was topped by the main course, which was Chicken Massaman. I didn't know it can taste so good.

Got dinner with my wife. Our salad and soup were amazing but main courses were very average. Service was extremely slow. Drinks didn't come until we were done with our appetizers. Rice came well after our main dishes were served, one was a curry which kind of needs some rice. Not a horrible experience but would not go back. Too... More

They have a great selection and it was very well presented. However, there just wasn't enough of anything. I had just 3 pieces of meat in my curry

Staying in Sukhumvit

Neighbourhood Profile
Sukhumvit
With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys) where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for a lively night out, soi 4 for naughty nightlife and soi 21 for world-class shopping at Terminal 21. It's hard to cover everything this area has to offer in on day, so be sure to take your time. Sukhumvit is heavily congested with traffic during day and night, so getting from A to B is most convenient using the BTS Skytrain right above it.
