I think Basil is more fusion than classic Thai, at least what we ordered. We tried several of the signature dishes. A spicy tuna tartar was very good, the fish and mango salad ok, but the high note was the spicy softshell crab with basil and peppercorns. Really delicious. We asked for medium spicy and it was perfect. Portions are... More

For our last night in Bangkok we had dinner at this up-scale, more expensive than usual Thai restaurant. We were greeted by professionals who served us very well and were very knowledgeable. As we were four, we decided to take two tasting menus (the 1300 and 1700 bahts) and two extra main courses and shared all around. The food was... More

Staying in Sukhumvit

Neighbourhood Profile
Sukhumvit
With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys) where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for a lively night out, soi 4 for naughty nightlife and soi 21 for world-class shopping at Terminal 21. It's hard to cover everything this area has to offer in on day, so be sure to take your time. Sukhumvit is heavily congested with traffic during day and night, so getting from A to B is most convenient using the BTS Skytrain right above it.
