My family and I are regular customers at this place. Super clean, friendly staff, excellent menu. The food is always fresh and absolutely delicious. We've had many items on the menu and we're never disappointed. Definitely the best Thai restaurant in Richmond Hill. Best in GTA in our experience.

My absolute favourite was the spicy coconut chicken soup - it's a must-try! The young coconut rice that came in an actual young coconut was absolutely yummy. The place had very nice and zen like Thai decor. Waiters were very attentive. A must-go place for a casual family dinner!

She gave it to me and disappeared quickly. Found out that they had added 12% for a party of 8 and... More

The food was very good. It is reasonably priced and the service is great and very quick. The food is (as far as I know) pretty authentic. The lunch special is a great deal and the options are not very limitted. Pad Thai is very good.

Thai food has always been about flavours and Thai Basil does not disappoint in that department. My wife and I have frequented this place often since they open a little while ago. It's a nice place, their dark halls with warm re-claimed type wood and Thai decor is quite appealing. The place has good valued lunch menu and the food... More

This is our go-to restaurant for lunch, take-out, and dining in for dinner. The menu offers a lots of choices for vegetarians. For example, basil chili fried rice, panang curry and basil tofu green bean stir-fry. Like that I can take out their lunch specials anytime before 5pm. Service is always great; staff is very friendly. Nice and cosy atmosphere.

This is my favorite thai food place and I've tried a lot of different places! I live in Newmarket and drive all the way to Richmond Hill at least once a week to eat here because the Thai food places closer to my area just don't taste as good as this place. Their lunch specials are such a good deal... More

For Thai food, our go-to is Thai Basil. The selection is good and the dishes are fresh and tasty. From the spring rolls and mango salad to the pad thai, noodles, spicy curries and assorted vegetable dishes, there's something for everyone. You know what to expect, it's pretty consistent and the servers are attentive. Reservations are recommended on the weekend.... More
