I have eaten in this branch of Holy Basil 3 times. The food is genuine Thai/Loatian style. The salads in particular are excellent. My only cricism is that it can be hard to get the wait staffs' attention - but it is always busy so its not because they are lazy.

I have decided to put a review on Shark Hotel for two reasons. 1) Over the years (last 7~8 years or so), they have been trying very hard to... More
