About Basil Nut Cafe & Restaurant

Nestled in an arcade on Katoomba Street in the picturesque Blue Mountains, is family-run café Basil Nut. This labour of love is the culmination of years of experience for a brother and sister duo, with an internationally-inspired menu to suit any palate. Once inside this rustic café, the colourful chalkboards and olive-green interior walls with ambient lighting set the mood for casual, mouth-watering dining. From an Asian street food menu, delve into steamed prawn and scallop dumplings; while those on the go can grab a chicken burger, drizzled with green curry mayo. For a tantalising main, opt for Hall of Fame dishes like an exotic Kullaway seafood curry of King prawns, ling fillet and calamari, cooked in a whole coconut shell, with Chef’s special sauce, peppercorn, kaffir lime and basil.

Very tasty genuine flavour


This is a fabulous foodies venue! It has the feel of eating in the inner west but in Katoomba! The Exotic Kulaway Seafood Curry is simply a masterpiece - both in presentation and taste! There is a huge variety of dishes without loss of flavour or detail to presentation!! A must if visiting - book or you'll be disappointed!!!
