I've eaten here several times and I always find something unusual and good and on the menu. They serve forbidden rice here as well as aromatic rice, which is wonderful.

Went for dinner without reservations. No wait. A small house with different roods for groups. Menu had more choices than we expected at a Thai Restaurant. Four people had four different dishes and a plate of appetizer and it was all really good food. Thoroughly enjoyed the food, but there was a very loud party in the next room, and... More

My Thai wife and I have been enjoying this place for some time. Excellent choice of authentic cooking although I avoid some of my wife's choices which she orders at top of the heat scale. Attractive dining room with outside dining in back during good weather. Service always polite and efficient. Good place to move away from pad thai and... More

Love their outdoor patio. I had pad thai with chicken. Was very good BUT the medium is now very hot. I overheard the waitress telling the next table that medium is hot - I've ordered medium here many times before and it was never this hot. maybe I'm getting sensitive! Lobster dish was only ok (my partner had). Fresh wrapped... More

I absolutely love this place. I've tried quite a few items on the menu. The food is always fantastic and the staff is great. During the warmer weather there is outdoor seating available. The seating inside is close together in a smaller space, but absolutely worth the trip.

My spouse reported that her comination plate (C4) was very good, and the others thoroughly enjoyed their plates. The pad kee mao was also very good. Be sure to ask for the "heat" you want The restaurant was in... More

It was getting late after we checked into our B&B, and we chose this restaurant because it was close by. We are certainly glad we did. The restaurant is on the top floor of an old house (their bar is on the bottom floor), and we were lucky that we got there about 1/2 hour or so from closing. The... More

Tried to take my daughter out for a special homecoming lunch today using a pre purchased Amazon.com voucher. Arrived to be told we could only use the voucher in the bar, and only after 5:00pm. Voucher clearly states " Sweet Basil/ Basil Bar", not just Basil Bar. Just read reviews for Basil Bar, which say inappropriate for children, so I... More

Order the house special curry with chicken. Tasty! A lovely outdoor patio when the weather is good. Unfortunately, parking is absolutely awful. Good luck there!
