    Not our first time eating here and definitely won’t be our last! Everything about a meal at Holy Basil is always fabulous! Staff are always so friendly and helpful- loved that last night 2 of our group really wanted the barramundi but another- the birthday girl wanted duck but both were in a red curry sauce, the waitress heard us debating and informed us that they could do the duck in a Massaamum sauce instead! Everyone was happy! All our courses were Delicious! Can’t wait for our next visit!

    Thoroughly enjoyed my meal & appreciated the chef checking on our service. After our chat about our love of Thai food, the chef prepared a serve of my favourite salad. Will be going back as often as I can.

    Absolutely delicious food, friendly & attentive service and very efficient delivery time with the serving of our meals. Before ordering we requested extra support with specific dietary restrictions and the staff were so informative about all ingredients used and offered wonderful alternatives and options to meet our specific needs. Would highly recommend this business to anyone and we will be back.

    Holy Basil Thai is a lovely restaurant. The food has an exquisite, distinct taste compared to other places around the area. For this particular dinner, I ate samples of the surprisingly not chewy calamari, the crispy barramundi fish, the crunchy pork belly and the pad siew. The people who work here are inviting and flexible with requests and orders. I appreciate how organised the restaurant is.

    Blown away by Holy Basil, the food was simply fantastic. I am very familiar with Thai food having spent a lot of time in Thailand and this place is up there with the best I've had in Australia, if not the best. A slight western twist on some dishes but so creative. The staff too couldn't have been better, very attentive without being in your face. They make you feel so welcome and help out with recommendations along the way. We had our 4 year old son with us and I think he made a few new bff's with the staff. Its very popular, we went on a gloomy Tuesday night and the place was packed - I can understand why. Can't believe I've lived in the area for 7 years and only now found this place. Do yourselves a favour and get down there asap.
