We are vegan and in this place there are lots of options for us . The mushroom hummus was really good and the falafel as well. The regular hummus was also good even for me was a little bit bitter because of too much thaini . But as Middle East cousins for sure they cook well . Staff is also... More

This place is awesome! Good value for money and tastes excellent. I highly recommend mothers vegetable soup and cous cous it was exceptional would happily order it again! Could possibly be shared between two people with an entree. Next time we are in Samui we will definitely come back!

A lovely surprise in Chaweng if you like middle eastern food. Could sit in the main dinning area or the enclosed air conditioned room . Really enjoyed our food ,beautifully baked bread, huge portions of tasty food . It's down a side street of shops next to the boxing stadium.

Were here for ~5 times and it became one of our favourite place to eat on Sundays (when we have a day-off and vegetarian places are mostly closed). Basilicom provides a lot of vegan options (with hummus, falafels, tahini, couscous, etc) that are tasty, big portioned and reasonably priced. Great to see special vegetarian and vegan signs for the dishes... More

I'm from England so only recently been introduced to Israeli food and this one did not disappoint. I loved the food, ambiance and the price was also very reasonable. The staff are also very friendly and helpful in helping you choose the right dish for you. Highly recommend!
