Price: Cheap but not too cheap
Score: 6.5/10 (although AH says "fail")
Disclaimer: This antiblogger has never knowingly eaten loatian food and for a while has heard of a legendary fried ice cream that emerges from the kitchen of Holy Basil.
Loatian food: most of the menu was Thai...ordered a few things that said "loatian" in the menu. For the uninitiated, it tastes fine. The fried rice salad and grilled chicken tasted good despite AH classing the fried rice salad "unauthentic".
Fried ice cream: if you're thinking of going to Holy Basil just for the fried ice cream we'd recommend not to.It's ok but not spectacular. A large triangle of ice cream in filo pastry covered with caramel sauce. The issue is the ice cream. Other restaurants can hide no frills ice cream in a tasty batter but with such a thin exterior the ice cream is exposed. It'd be better if the serving size was reduced and the quality of the ice cream increased.
Overall ok but over hyped.
