Excellent food

Very good food but not a lot of atmosphere. The Yellow Curry Chicken and Pad Thai are the best I have had anywhere.

I have had the pleasure of visiting this wonderfully authentic Thai restaurant 3 times now and cannot say enough about how great the food is! I am new to Thai food and thought I had great food one time on vacation. Then I returned home and visited this little gem of a restaurant and had OUTSTANDING Thai food...much better than... More

Excellent, authentic Thai food in Andover. I travel frequently to the area for work and grab take-out from That Sweet Basil most trips. Great food and good prices. They are heavy on the spice, so go easy. I typically order 3 starts but knock it down to 2 when ordering here.

We have been going here for the last 7 years and love it! The food is always good; made to specifications and is good value for the money. Ample options given on the menu and the service is friendly as well!

I always like my meal at Thai Basil, their duck dishes, fish dishes and noodle dishes are always fresh and very, very flavorful. Even their dessert, Thai custard is out of this world. We love it there and in this strip mall it's the only restaurant worth going to. Nice atmosphere, attentive staff makes me say, " two thumbs up"

Thai Sweet Basil is a local gem with great food at a very good price and very solid service. We eat here once every few months and really like this place, and the people that run it. The menu is broad and very very good. Yum yum yum !
