It's difficult to go wrong with the Thai Basil, curries, pad thai, and dishes incorporating chicken or seafood. Usual vegetarian options available. This is a great place for conversation; the staff... More

This place is pretty small and on a Friday night you can tell if a place good downtown is good because its crowded but not true here, the food was mediocre at best. We eat out almost every night and have pretty idea what is good and what isn't . We wanted to try and we did and that is... More

Visited this place in early October. It's fairly small and unpretentious, located in Downtown Chico very close to the Chico State campus. Parking can be a challenge depending on the day and time. We tried to go there for lunch, but they are only open for Dinner on Saturdays. We had 2 versions of Pad Thai, one with Shrimp, one... More

Thia Basil lies in the heart of downtown Chico. A modest exterior and interior, but don't let the decor fool you! Thai Basil serves the usual complete Thai menu along with a handful of beers to complement it.

Great place, recommended by locals so we looked forward to the experience, excellent wait staff, even on a busy night they were attentive to a group of lingerers who didn't mean to show up late for the reservation but did. Group had a variety of entrees that we shared and it was all good. Wish I lived local so I... More
