Really impressed with the quality of the food here. Everything tastes fresh and we were amazed at how quickly everything came out. It must have been anywhere from a couple of minutes for the hummus and fresh baked flat bread up to 15 for the meat and chips. We were very hungry so it was very pleasing that everything came out so quickly. We may have over ordered as we thought the dishes would be smaller. Not sure if I'm proud or ashamed that we managed to eat everything. We spent not far off £30 with tip and had around 7 dishes and drinks. Very good value. Now in a food coma. Would highly recommend.
Only one downside, they don't take card. Thailand charges around £5 for cash withdrawals at ATMs and you don't really want to keep taking out cash. I also stupidly only took a credit card so had to walk back to the hotel for cash.

Basilicom offers Israeli food prepared with great accuracy.
Food is very tasty. We tried the chicken steak which came with a small salad and two sides. We had a Falafel in pita which had a weird spice but generally tasty, and a Burekas which was wonderful.
Staff is friendly and helpful and place is clean.
Highly recommended!

The place is nice and modern. Food was unfortunately just barely ok, and they didn’t have three out of the five dishes we ordered. They advertise to be vegan friendly, which based on the menu would be the case, but when so few dishes were available, our meal was a bit of a disappointment (menu marks seafood vegetarian, which is strange). They didn’t have stuff like potatoes, which is not exactly a seasonal ingredient and could be stocked from any supermarket near by. No milk alternatives for coffee, not even coconut milk.
Falafels were ok, yet fatty. You can get better ones from the street stalls. Arab salad was nice, a lot of fresh coriander. Jahnoon didn’t impress, the egg was gray and clearly boiled a day before, and there was no spicy sauce like said in the menu, and the roll was squishy and tasteless. I’m not an expert of this dish, never had it before, so no idea if it’s supposed to be like that.
Fresh juices were nice though.
Food quality would be 3 stars, just the overall experience with missing dishes drops the score to 2.
