Some things just standout from the rest, and Holy Basil has achieved this on many levels. Holy Basil is situated in Canley Heights, an area renowned for good Asian food at reasonable prices, in restaurants with basic decor.

Holy Basil, however, evokes a totally different atmosphere when you enter the restaurant....you feel like you are in a restaurant in Newtown or Surry Hills in the city. The place is nicely furnished and gives a warm ambience with its' predominantly wooden decor. There are also tasteful artworks on the walls.

We decided to order a variety of dishes: avocado shake, pineapple rice, grilled beef and chicken curry. The avocado shake arrived nicely presented in a large glass, it tasted fluffy and had a nice avocado taste and was just right in terms of sweetness.

The pineapple rice was nicely spiced and flavoured, a great way to eat rice. The chicken curry was a little spicy, but the curry flavours were well balanced. The only disappointment was the grilled beef, which was a bit too dry and overcooked.

It's good to see a restaurant with the guts to be different from the rest....good food and good service in a nicely furnished restaurant...consider trying Holy Basil the next time you are in Canley Heights.
