The family had lunch here, a new experience for pre-teen twins who never had Thai food; they pronounced it "delicious." Although, I have had better, the food was mostly good, especially the spring rolls. Pleasant service.

Authentic and great place to eat. Be sure to make a reservation as it gets very busy for dinner. Lots of options for vegetarians and if you like cocktails quite a selection

A totally random pick as we were driving around. It did not disappoint. The food is reasonable authentic (although not very spicy). The portions were good (for the pad thai) and the price very reasonable. A good find.

I recently had lunch at Thai basil after only eating dinner there before and was not disappointed. It's definitely worth going to when you're in Manchester the food is always wonderful and the service is great. Will be back soon
