Absolutely delicious meal. We thought we had previously had great coconut rice but this coconut was the best ever. Our first time here, we will be back. Efficient friendly service, clean and pleasant. Thank you!

Enjoyed a wonderful Friends day out at Black Basil Thai. The menu is extensive but they do offer daily specials.The food was scrumptious,service was timely and friendly and we didn't feel rushed to leave. Will definitely return for seconds and happy to recommend this restaurant...to anyone.More

After a really bad experience with a Thai restaurant in our neighbourhood, we have been trying them all! This one is located a little further away from us, but we will now drive the extra way as it is amazing. Very Authentic, reasonably priced, and...packaged well for COVID safe takeaway.More

Best Thai- worth a drive from anywhere in Geelong! Amazing! Honest about wait times and apologetic if late- very rarely late though. The food is always tasty, perfect taste and consistently high quality. Absolute best Thai! Amazing for takeaway and for to eat in (non...covid times).More

Absolutely delicious! I ordered the green chicken curry and loved how many fresh vegetables came with it. They were really fast and I would highly recommend.

We absolutely love Black Basil Thai. Fantastic food. Jam packed full of flavour. Generous serves and well priced. We’re vegan and find it hard to find decent Thai options around Geelong. Black basil has a seperate vegan menu with several tasty dishes. Our faves: fried...rice with veg, chilli basil with tofu and veg, pad thai with veg and tofu and the roti with peanut sauce. All of these are on the vegan menu and are delicious!!!!! We have eaten in and taken away. Highly recommend Black Basil!More

This is the only Thai restaurant we will go to in our area. Tonight we went for takeaway and found them handing out free meals - the staff are always friendly and so helpful - we can't wait until they re-open and we can support...them again. They are the best. Thank you!More

We booked early for our anniversary. Glad we booked. People were being turned away it was so busy and all tables full. Service was excellent. Takeaway was happening at the same time but did not affect table service. The food was sensational. Well presented and...hot. I had to share dessert as I was full!More

Ordered chicken Pad See-ew and beef Massaman Curry and I haven’t tasted flavours like this since I was in Thailand. Absolutely delicious. I don’t live in the area, just passing by so this was my first time buying takeaway here and it definitely won’t be...my last!More
