      A really good authentic thai cafe in the heart of Kilburn. Great menu, great prices

      On the Kilburn High Road, just down from where Willesden Lane intersects, sits a small cafteria style restaurant called 'Spicy Basil.' Yes, the name is appauling, the decor is pretty bland - the wall feature is a television split between 4 CCTV views, so you can watch yourself whilst you eat! - and thus you could be forgiven for for avoiding this place and going to one of Kilburn's other restaurants.

      However, the food is exquisite. Having lived in Thailand I have got a sense of what is good Thai food and what isn't and this cheeky little cafe-style restaurant has got it perfect. I have eaten there on several occasions, sampling: the pad thai, the Tom Yung Prawn Soup, Several appetisers, Several Chicken and Noodle dishes, Green Curry and Masaman Curry. All tasted as if I was scoffing my face in Koh Pangnan and, what's more, didn't cost too much more than there!

      Main dishes start at an impressively low £4 and rise staggeringly to, errr, £6(with rice or noodles depending on your dish). Appetisers are possibly how they make there money as they are all over £3 (i.e. for 5 mini spring-rolls) yet are very tasty. But generally you can have a really good, filling meal, with drinks for under a tenner a head.

      Drinks are impressive... They do their own fresh juices and a range of teas on top of the usual canned fluids. They also sell baby coconuts (though £2.50 each) which I simply adore and find hard to get this far away from the tropical regions.

      All in all, not a place to impress decor wise but as a late night meal or cheeky little taster of a bite this place is fantastic... kapon kap!
