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

Omg I love this place! It's the perfect mix between quality Thai atmosphere and cleanliness. I could eat here every day. The prices are fair and the quantities do not leave you unsatisfied at the end of the meal. Perfect for families and for groups.

Yes it's flavours that unite, clash & mend in your mouth. Starting with the mango tea! talk about different (delicious). This meal is a walk into flavour lane, from duck to eggplant- it's all very tasty! I have added some pictures to help you "visually". Judging by the number of customers on the week end, do make a reservation.

My husband and I go here a couple times a month for dinner. Good menu and drinks list - I like a sake with Thai food and my husband likes a beer from that area of Asia. The food is very good and the service is friendly and helpful. The Tam Yun soup is very tasty as are the curry... More

Treated my best friend and her husband, who visited Toronto recently, to Thai Basil. They stayed with relatives at Richmond Hill and I brought them to Thai Basil due to reviews on TripAdvisor. The place was packed but they had a couple of tables available so lucky us for having gotten a table even without a reservation. The female wait... More

I went here with my wife for Dinner I chicken with peanut sauce and the spinach. It was very lightly seasoned. However, I was looking for more favor. The price was a decent value and the flatbread was pretty tasty.

We visited Thai Basil via recommendation and I found my best green curry here. I don't take too much for spicy food but the curry here satisfied my appetite with flavours and body..the best! We ordered the lettuce wrap before our main course, its perfect complement of spicy meat, vegetable, cool lettuce leaf wrap made the dish unforgettable. You should... More
