We really enjoyed our Thai evening in December. We managed to eat early and took advantage of the early bird menu. Great prices and good portion sizes. The Thai curries and starters were especially good. Lovely setting in a vaulted cellar.

The staff are always friendly - come here every time I meet my parents and I love it! My girlfriend is half Thai too and she thinks it’s amazing. Won’t lie and say I always have the same tiger cry (weeping tiger) but everyone else...More

Came to the Basement with my boyfriend on Wednesday night this week; the restaurant is so cosy and comfortable, and there is a very relaxing atmosphere. I had the Chicken Strip (Gai Keaw) for the starter, and it is INCREDIBLE. I had the sizzling sirloin...More
