We happened upon Basil Bistro by chance, after walking around our hotel. It is one of those restaurants that doesn’t really have any faults, it is good. The reason we would give it only 4/5 is because of the price. You can find similar quality...More

Delicious food and great staff. I had the bruschetta B80 to start. Tomatoes on too were nice, but it would have been nicer to have toasted bread or a bit of cheese. But still, I enjoyed it. I had the morning glory with chicken B100,...More

We ate here a couple of times and had the massaman chicken curry both times which was great value for just 90 Baht. A nice break from all of the pizza slices we ate whilst in Phi Phi 🙄

Excellent yellow curry, best Thai I’ve had on phi phi. Only disappointment is for 30 baht you only get a solitary spring roll. Otherwise 5 star.
