Great Thai Food!

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... read more

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 !

This restaurant is clean, sharp and great. The food is fresh, the dishes spiced beautifully,and the service is excellent. This is on our mom's group dinner rotation. You won't be disappointed. The wines are quite good as well.

We have been here a number of times. Good is very good... The service is driving me away! They do not have a sense of teamwork ... Orders wrong, slow,clueless . Too bad but growing old. Lost in translation ?

Lunch here was wonderful. We started with the fresh basil rolls for an app. We had the Pad Thai, Vegetable Tofu Green Curry, and Beef Rendang. Everything was delicious. The food was hot and the service was excellent. Tried the Thai hot tea and loved it. Great place and I will be back.

I've been marooned on Cape Cod for four months. You can't swing a dead cat without hitting a terribly outdated plain restaurant. My taste buds have been screaming for something that doesn't taste like sewer rat on a stick. Then I came here. I had already had dinner and so I ordered something to take home with me while we...

Met my girlfriend there for lunch. She had the Pad Thai and I had the Crazy Noodle. They were both scrumptious. She's been there before and we will definitely return!

Ordered Curry Puffs, Fresh Basil Rolls, (both with regrets), Shrimp Papaya Salad, Seaman's Pik Pow, Pad Thai, Crazy Noodle, and House Siam Fried Rice(by mistake, should be Basil Fried Rice). Tried most of them, don't like the Siam Fried Rice. Crazy Noodle is the best and Pad Thai is good too.

I've not been crazy about Thai food in the past but these dishes were uncomplicated, not overly smothered in sauce and very tasty. Really enjoyed sampling the deserts with my coworkers. Other than the strip mall location and rather generic atmosphere, I would highly recommend.
