Food wasn’t very appetising. The downstairs toilet floor was badly flooded but left open for anyone to use without mopping it up. Saw into the kitchen whilst downstairs and felt ill. Won’t ever go there again and have advised friends to avoid.

Sadly one of our favourite places has really gone down hill. We were pretty well the only people eating there at 9pm on a Friday , and the food was really disappointing. Such a pity, but will not be returning.

Worst Thai food I’ve ever eaten. Coconut rice was more like a dessert laden with sugar. Awful main course with little flavour. Grumpy staff. I don’t recommend and will never visit again.

Enjoyed a pleasant evening meal on Saturday with my wife. We had the mid price set menu, which was very tasty with multiple courses and generous portions. Reasonably priced wine. Service was extremely polite and very efficient. Much of the clientele was SE Asian - which I consider a good sign! ...and this helped to add to the international ambience of an evening in cosmopolitan Bath.

I love going to this place. It's my favourite Thai in Bath. Was a super busy Saturday night so service was a little slow but the food is always tasty

Food was certainly not fresh, I would hazard a guess that some had been warmed up as the meat was very chewy and had little flavour. We were only 2 of 6 people on that night and the atmosphere was non existent, not a great night. We were staying the night in Bath and for all the restaurants in Bath I think we picked the wrong one. Sorry Thai Basil.

Food was good although very heavy. Waiting stuff was okay, but got the order wrong and tried to blame it on us, although we ordered using the numbers on the menu to avoid confusion. Wasn't very nice after as well. Wouldn't go back as it's an average restaurant.

Awful. The worst food I have ever eaten by miles. Having been to many Thai restaurants and to the country itself I was expecting much better. Avoid at all costs. Literally.

Decent thai food sweetened a bit for the western palate, we liked that becuase our daughter can't handle spice at all. This was a good balance where we still thought food was authentic enough while she could also enjoy.

The food was very authentic as it was our first time at a Thai restaurant. The green curry was impeccable and all of the starters we had ordered were delicious. Would recommend.

Did not have much time as it was a pre theatre meal. I hope to spend longer next time. The green curry is to die for

My son and I were looking for a nice Thia restaurant and Thai Basil was just perfect. My son asked if he could have traditional soup with noodles. The waiter said that they would make it for him even though it wasn't on the menu - now that's service! The food was delicious with perfect Thai flavors. A lovely evening!

Had an enjoyable meal from the set menu. All of the dishes were delicious and there was food left over. Service friendly and attentive.
The atmosphere score marked down purely because we ate at a time when the restaurant was quiet.

Best, most authentic Thai I have had in England, including London. Sauces were wonderfully and authentically spiced to perfection. Further, I was very impressed when the staff kindly, but firmly stepped up to insist that a family take responsibility to manage children which they were allowing to noisily run about as they ate their meal.

Went here whilst in a weekend break in Bath with friends. The food was delicious and very tasty. Some of the dishes were quite spicy as well as tasty. Service was fine, not in your face but respectfully discreet and polite. Didn’t have to wait long for the food. Would definitely go again.

Booked on a whim after walking past and being enticed by the lovely smell. Early Saturday evening on a day when Bath rugby club were playing at home. The OpenTable reservation hadn't gone through so maybe we caught them on the hop. Service was very slow, however when the food did come out is was of a very high standard. Would recommend for the food and value but the service needs to improve at busy times.
