Thai Basil Indiranagar Bengaluru

Craving for Thai food in Bengaluru..

Look no further than Thai Basil, a small Thai restaurant in Indiranagar overshadowed by the bustle of the surrounding pubs and restaurants.
Thai Basil (previously called Thai House) serves lip-smacking, authentic Thai fare of vegetarian, chicken, seafood (fish, prawns, squids etc) and beef dishes.

What to eat:
Like most Thai restaurants, the menu is pictorial – you can see the image of the dish on the menu (super convenient on what to expect)
I highly recommend to try the below:

  • Appetiser:
    • Papaya salad (can be ordered as veg/seafood/fish/egg etc) is absolutely refreshing, tasty and not heavy on the stomach.
    • Tom Yum soup (can be ordered as veg/seafood/fish/chicken) is a riot of flavours , aromatic and cooked to perfection with spices
    • Note: 1 bowl of soup is massive and can serve 4 persons

  • Drink: Ice Lemon tea is my favourite, they do serve soft drinks as well
  • Main Course:
    • Thai Red Curry and Thai Green Curry: both are delicious and supercharged with strong aromatic spices.Pair this with a bowl of sticky rice or steamed white rice.
    • Pad Thai Noodles: Non-spicy, rich in flavour and very tasty. They come with a load of sprouts and crushed peanut powder – that add the crunch and elevate the taste.
    • Note: the main course portions are big, so order as you go.

  • Dessert: very limited options, it’s best to avoid this and head out to your favourite ice-cream/pastry shop in Indiranagar
    • Strawberry Desserts: head to Milano ice cream, about 500m from Thai House to savour the strawberry sundae made from fresh strawberries.
