Good Location: Easily reachable (near Bahnhof SBB & very near tram station Zoo Bachletten (lines 1/8), a bit back from the main street = quiet, also has tables outside on the pavement

Good food: Owner is couple Swiss husband & Thai wife, so they know about Thai food

Longstanding reputation: Exists since 1991, i.e. they have built up a reputation which they are keen to keep, i.e. it's in their own interest to offer a good service, i.e. we should not have to worry about bad service.

Service is friendly, the young Thai waitress is so soft and a real beauty and was my highlight of the evening.

The interior is also nice. They have free WiFi, Thai decorations and decent Thai background music (low volume).

I have been there in 2008, 2016, 2017 and have nothing bad to say.

Went there with a friend past Friday. We were starving and ordered the appetizer platter for 2. There was deep fried vegetables a lot of it was potatoes and it was really greasy. The spring rolls were delicious and there was also a deep fried ravioli with a tiny amount of filling which we didn't know what was in there...
Main course we had the mild yellow curry with fried rice and Pad Thai with tofu. I ordered the pad thai because everyone on here was telling how good it is....It was average, it didn't have vegetables (besides a few spring onion and soybean sprouts!?)
For a price of CHF 31.00 I expect it to be a good portion, however it was quite small. We were lucky to have ordered appetizers. A man would have left the restaurant hungry. Not coming back as we paid CHF 107.00 for just two waters, the appetizer platter and two main meals...

Have been there quite a lot of times. Sometimes with my family and sometimes for a business lunch. Atmosphere (music, table decoration, etc.) is really nice and you feel comfortable. The owners and the employees are very friendly and the service is great. Food is good as well. They offer a lot of different dishes. If you are a group of people and you are willing to share your chosen plates they offer the possibility to serve the food in the middle of the table (on candles so that it stays warm). Last but not least: If you like duck meat you should definitely order the whiskey duck! Wine list is outstanding.

Very good Thai food , Thai-Style Beef is amazing its spicy but not burn-your-mouth spicy and Beef with oyster sauce was tasty. The ice cream is a nice way to finish the meal. I really like the mango ice cream. They served it in the actual freeze mango .The owner is friendly and nice. Atmosphere really remind me of restaurant in Thailand, Thai old school song was playing in the background.

A colleague found this place by accident we decided to try this on our last day in Basel glad we did the food was great and authentic Thai. I can really recommend the Massaman curry very tasty. Crispy duck is also very good.
Service is excellent and very quick. we have tried most of the top rated Thai in Basel and this comes high in the list.
