Nordbahnhof Thai Restaurant in St. Johann is the go to for Asian cuisine lovers in Basel. The eatery that has a retro style Quartierbeiz charm is always bustling with patrons. It is only around a hundred meters away from the Kannenfeldplatz bus and tram station so many commuters drop by for a quick Asian chow. The interiors are modest and not as commonly colourful as most Asian restaurants but the food that bursts with Asian flavours more than makes up for the lack of ambiance. A petite garden also allows for al fresco seating in the summertime.
 
 
Their menu features Thai favourites like pad Thai, spicy mango salad, spring rolls, Tom Yam and other similar soups, roast duck and various curries at budget friendly prices (not common in Basel).

Santa Pasta in Kleinbasel is a trendy lunch spot offering a few made fresh daily pasta options and antipasti choices for lunch. Owners Benjamin Leuzinger and Gastro Gabriel Tenger opened their first location on Rheingasse and the pasta success has led to another location in the St. Johanns suburbs. There is no set menu because they offer freshly prepared pasta and homemade sauces made from what they are inspired with from fresh market produce everyday. Spinach lasagna, meaty pasta alla Salsiccia with fried sausage, and spaghetti Vongole are just some of the hearty pasta offerings that diners may enjoy when they visit. The place is almost always packed with diners so it is quite convenient that they have a take away option. 
 
 
Santa Pasta is open Mon - Fri from 11:30am until 1:30pm. The Rheingasse location is open only for lunch but the new location in St. Johanns will also be open for dinner Tue-Sat from 6:30 pm onwards.

Thai Restaurant Boo in Kleinbasel is a relaxing Thai eatery with a vibrant ambiance. The family run restaurant is ideal for group and family gatherings. There are plenty of family style seating and a long communal table but there are a few small tables for couples too. Usual Thai favourites like Pad Thai, green or red curried dishes, and satay can be found on the menu. Their chicken with cashew and duck in coconut curry sauce are a big hit. Make sure to try their ginger tea, lemon grass iced tea and ginger beer. Their brownies with coconut ice cream is simply irresistible but there are also less sinfully gratifying dessert options like mixed fruits. Take away ordering is also available.

 

We love that they have free Wi-Fi so you can instantly upload photos of their yummy food and cozy setting on Instagram or Facebook.

 

Thai restaurant Boo is open for lunch from 11:30 am to 2 pm on weekdays and for dinner throughout the week from 6 – 10:30 pm.

 

WorldTop7 Insider Tip: remember to ask to be seated at a separate private table upon booking if you do not want to be seated at the communal table.
