WOW. What a great place. Food is fantastic. Eaten a lot of Thai food before but this is a gem of a find. It a quaint place with a few tables only so it never feels busy or cramped. Definitely worth a visit.

We came here while staying nearby. We had been before a couple of years ago so knew it was nice. I had the Tom yum soup to start with, I love thai soup and it was great. The others had the starter for two and they enjoyed it. The crying tiger was very nice as was the green curry. I... More

On the way back from a short stay in York and the surrounding area we were hungry and looking for something with a fish/veg option that wasnt simply fish and chips. Came across this place and being in skipton regrettably i had decided it may not be all that due to the location (i just wouldn't presume a place like... More

Booked this restaurant at the beginning of the week for a meal to celebrate a momentous moment in time! On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly lady who showed us to our table which was in the window area! My partner had his first Thai meal no more than 3 weeks ago and was eager to try Thai...

We were staying in Gargrave, so only a short drive to Skipton. There is a massive carpark only 20 metres away from Thai basil. The building is beautiful, in what is now a regenerating area. There is a B&M store and a Morrisons across the way, close, but not too close. A bit of a shame these lovely old buildings... More

We have been here several times for lunch when we visit Skipton. The service is always very good and the front of house is always smiling and she always gives us a great welcome. The food is just typical authentic Thai food - lovely.

Visited this restaurant and had the lunchtime menu. The food was top notch and the special menu was brilliant value for money. Tom Yum soup was spicy and beautifully flavoured. The beef basil stir fry was lovely. Overall, in my experience you could not get this quality food for the price anywhere else. Definitely visit again when back in Skipton.

Day trip to Skipton for hiking and photography. I purposefully delayed my visit for Tuesday to coincide with Thai Basil hours and wasn't disappointed. As other reviews have stated the decor is great, service excellent and food delicious. Linen napkins and traditional Thai dress for the hostesses makes the experience that much more delightful. I was somewhat underdressed I felt,... More

Hadn't booked a table but we had no problems. Very polite staff. There was a table of 5 already in and it wasn't long before another couple joined us. The food is lovely, we had the number 2 set dinner with a soup to start with. Nice bottle of wine and a couple of shinga beers went down a treat.... More

The restaurant is founded in 2011. It is new to this town but Thai restaurants are not new to our experiences. We are a group of people who are passionate about food and have an overwhelming desire to create our own family restaurant where we can cook a good quality of food in a good atmosphere. We started our dream by renting a restaurant in Shipley, and then stepped forward to found our own restaurant in Skipton, the small historic market town in North Yorkshire with beautiful scenery, this makes it a perfect place for us.---Our Promises--- We promise to prepare and cook every dish with pride, using the finest ingredients and vegetables sourced locally, to create not only delicious but also healthy food for our customers.The tasty food is cooked by a chef of vast experience who worked for many years in a 5-star hotel in Thailand and in Thai restaurants in the UK. Not only do we aim to make tasty food we also strive to provide a friendly and excellent service in a smart and intimate dinning atmosphere.Our high standards of cleanliness are proven by achieving a5-star rating in Food Hygiene. We also have an excellent reputation given by our customers on Trip Advisor which ranks us amongst the top restaurants in Skipton. You can trust us to ensure that you will spend a wonderful time here, and you will want to come back again and again.
