The Basement Thai Restaurant Graphics Header

Located in the centre of Ashbourne, serving authentic Thai dishes with scent of sweet and spice flavours. Open for lunch and evening meals.

Welcome to The Basement Thai Restaurant

The Basement Thai Restaurant took up residency in 2010 at the centre of Ashbourne, a market town in Derbyshire. Run by a passionate team of individuals bringing culture, passion and their love of food to the table.

Traditionally Thai food is freshly cooked and offered on boat canals, on the streets, or at open markets, taken home, consumed at any time of the day and well into the early hours, it is the way of life in Thailand. Here at The Basement Thai, we transform street food into a restaurant sit-down meal with skills and knowledge pass down through generations.

Experience the culinary journey to Thailand with our favourite dishes crafted with original Thai flavours, an explosion of flavours and colourful fresh ingredients.

We invite you to join us for quick lunch or a relaxed evening meal in our intimate and relaxing restaurant.
