We had lunch and it was amazing. Bangkok style pad thai and fresh curry chicken. A lovely mix and contrast of flavours and light heat. We also had calamari that was nicely breaded and tasty. The sweet chili thai sauce was too sweet to serve with the appetizer but that was the only not-quite-right note. A less sweet and more... More

This is my first time ordering from this restaurant. I did take out... $25.99 for a tiny mango salad (that could only feed one) and pad thai. Pad thai was good but a little over-flavoured. Best I've had in Durham though... still doesn't come close to Suko Thai in Mississauga!!! I think I'll save my money for sushi instead.

I had take out from this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews. I called and asked for house specialties and was not disappointed. The food was amazing, We had Pad Thai, and cashew chicken, both were delicious and authentic. We also had spring rolls. It was 40 dollars for two dishes and the spring rolls but honestly it was worth... More

We go to Sweet Basil Thailand for takeout often. Best Thai in Durham hands down. The Atmosphere at the restaurant needs a little help. More people dining there would make the difference. Very clean and neat but a little too subdued. Highly recommend it but make sure you have 4 in your group to liven the place up.

The food here is great! Good quality ingredients, good portions, great flavours, and well presented. From a food perspective, you can't go wrong. But... There's something odd about the servers and the atmosphere. It's always DEAD in the restaurant and so very quiet, it can be unnerving. Also, the servers seem so timid and quiet. I have no idea why.... More

Whitby is one of those suburban towns that, once you scratch its surface, has some wonderful surprises. This is one of those. This may be the best Thai food my wife and I ever had. If this was in a major city it would most likely have a go-to reputation. The food was fresh and perfectly prepared. The red and... More

My husband and I had dinner at Sweet Basil and I had the best pad thai ever! The food was very fresh and appetizing. Only thing I would change is add more vegetables to the vegetarian version. The vegetable spring rolls were great as well. All nicely presented. For girls night a few weeks later I suggested Sweet Basil takeout.... More
