Cycling on the shoreline of East Coast Park a couple of times, finally had the chance to give this restaurant a try. I do miss Thai food ever since the pandemic. Basil & Thyme restaurant was surprisingly authentic flavours considering we are in the middle of the beach front park. The moment when the Thai chef came out to greet us assured us the food is legit. Our team end up having a big Thai feast as soon as he found out we were from AtlasPocket.com
We started the lunch with papaya Thai salad: Som Tum and of course Tom Yum Soup to open our appetite. The fried Tod Mun Goong (prawn patties) and Satay Gai are my favorite. Usual staple like Khao Op Sabparot (pineapple fried rice) , Khai Jiao (egg omelette), Thai Green Curry and Pad Thai noodles are very visible on their menu. I must say their portion size are generous. Not everything here is spicy and best part of all, they always have vegetarian version from Pad Thai to fried rice. Service here is prompt and can get very busy especially on weekends.
Some of our highlights are the deep fried whole sea bass with sweet and hot sauce and the red & green curry are tantalising to my taste buds and a chilled glass noodle salads to soak all the heat in. Its a fun family restaurant that parties hard on a weekend evening. The crowd is lively as the band play live music.
Basil and Thyme opened in 2019. A Thai restaurant sporting a Micro-Brewery and a live band space. Tucked away on the shorelines of the East Coast Parkway, this beautiful ambient restaurant not only located right in front of a beautiful beach view but has a rather eclectic interior to match it. Overall a relaxing ambience that naturally makes you feel warm and welcome. As the night dawn, a live band stage comes alive with a well equipped bar, it promises to be a great evening hang out area for you and your friends. On the weekends it is your family haven to have an alfresco day strolling in the parkland area or go cycling like we did, after which you can enjoy a Basil and Thyme meal.
