Spicy Basil

-

Finally got around to visiting Spicy Basil in Kilburn. It’s been on my list for a long time as I’ve heard that’s it’s one of the top Thai places in London.

So of all, this place is not fancy.. It’s very basic and no frills. There are 2 floors, the top floor is very cafe like, small and tight with loads of people. However, there is a downstairs which is a recent addition, this area is a little more spacious and is where I ate. When I entered on a Sunday night the place was packed and buzzing. Lucky, we where shown a table without waiting.

Spicy Basil focuses on providing their customers with good quality food at a very good price. Every main is £5.50 and the curries comes with rice, so no need for those extra side orders. The red curry I had was thick, spicy and full of flavour, I really enjoyed this dish. The starters we had, especially the chicken Satay was brilliant and is now my favourite around.

Where the food and value excel, the service and overall ambience is very underwhelming. It’s all about quick turn around here, in and out no fuss. Expect you ask for cutlery or chase menus when you sit and food coming at different times. There was around a 7mins wait between the mains combining which meant I was waiting around while my friend and his wife where eating away.

So a visit to spicy Basil is definitely recommend, as the food was very good. As long as you sit downstairs and are with good company you will have a good time.
