Being a snob in such matters, I feel bad when I am not eating the native food where it’s good, but travelling with children (mine at least) it’s a different game - they want the usual stuff from back home. In our case (and not just ours I guess) this means chicken schnitzel with chips. Anyway, we ended up looking for it here.

Surprisingly we adults also enjoyed the meal, because the food was good and the atmosphere was pleasant - the service was good and the place felt hospitable (you’ve got to hand it to them - it requires quite a lot of patience. The waiter even spoke surprisingly good Hebrew). I ate Shakshuka with Falafel, which is a concept I haven’t previously encountered, but it kind of works, and the children got what they wanted.

Of course, it’s not the quietest place in the world, but that’s not the owners’ fault…

This Israeli style restaurant serves amazing food and very nice atmosphere! The service needs some work, a few wrong and forgotten items happened by when the right food came it was amazing.

We went to Basilicom after reading few reviews on TripAdvisor and I must say, completely worth it. The food was great! We had a perfect fresh and tasty salmon with salads and 2 extras for 350 bath! Super fair price and I definitely recommend!

It's nice inside bit off from side road with Google however won't be a problem to find it.
Positive:
staff was very nice and friendly.
Chicken steak was very good

Not so positive:
Phad Thai was ok have tried much better ones.
Rice which came with chicken was nice but cold.
I'd give this restaurant another shot tho to try their other dishes, lot different varieties in the menu.
