Basically that is what decided if I enjoyed my holiday or not, basil was perfect place for me and my wife . Bit expensive but value for money. Authentic Italian taste to food and warm service .

4년전에 트립어드바이져에 찾아 보고 간 곳인데 기억을 더듬어 가보니 그대로였다. 핫야이에 3일 머물면서 매일 갔는데 보통가격으로 5성급 호텔 식당의 맛을 느낄수 있었다. 어떤 음식을 주문하든지 실망하지않을것이다. We were here 4years ago, we had lunch and it reminded us the memory that we had a wonderful time which kept in our mind. Just by chance we come to Hat Yai again,... More

I went here twice, though not very often I do look forward to going back again. The food are great, wide selection of Western foods, steaks, pizza, etc. I have never tried but friends said that their pizza is great, I'll be sure to try it on my next visit. Prices is above average, but still cheaper than most Western... More

Its not easy making a great pizza, but that's what they do here + they serve other western food as well with prices starting around 180 baht. I ordered a ham and mushroom pizza, 9/10 cost 250 baht, its a large size suitable for 2 people. The restaurant is plain looking and from the outside it looks like its closed,... More

2 appetizers and 3 main dishes each with a distinct flavor and done well, a lovely bottle of wine for a reasonable price, and a bright cheery interior. Good job Basil!

We had a really excellent lunch at this European restaurant. Pan fried foie gras, scallops, three types of really delicious pasta, tiramisu. You are spoilt for choice by the varied menu and we did not even look at the separate pizza menu. Wine prices were not unreasonable, although I would have preferred a simple wine list as opposed to a... More

I think they was nice before. I ordered foie gras with mango, grill scallop, tuna salad, meat steak from Australian, tiramisu, pannacotta and one expresso coffee. I like foie gras sure. The... More
