We chose this unassuming Thai restaurant because the location was convenient, but after the wonderful meal we know we will be back. The Red Curry catfish was spot on, the Win Ton soup was complex and lovely, the chicken satay and eggplant were very good, and the brown rice and pad Thai were expertly prepared.

Honestly, think its the best Thai food in Fullerton and surrounding areas!! Satay to the Tum Yong Gung soup, then the Panang and noodle dishes are very good! The service is decent, but usually pretty busy so may take some time... I really like the sauces and spices here, get an eight on the scale and its so good!

Just when I needed comfort food, I remembered Thai Basil and their great-value, delicious-tasting fare. Quick, fresh, healthy, well-prepared and generous portions. Highly recommended!

This is near my office but never had the occasion to go in. My brother had tried it and asked me if I wanted to go to lunch there, which I did. I have now been back 4 times. Great authentic Thai food. They have lunch special menu with lower prices and small portions, but perfect for lunch. They are... More

Have been coming here for a while now. Wife and I love their food and is not too expensive. Unfortunately, sometimes the wait can be up to 15 minutes to get seated. However, we highly recommend this restaurant.

My husband and I found this restaurant when looking for a place to eat near our hotel. It was very crowded on the Sunday evening we stopped in, so we thought we found a good spot. No one asked to help us/seat us as we stood inside the restaurant. We opted for take-out, so I approached the counter and placed... More

Found this restaurant online while in CA on vacation. Interior is nicely decorated with basic Asian accents. We started with summer rolls, which were very good. The best dish we had was the pad see ew with Chicken. We could have eaten two more plates of that! My husband had the red curry chicken which contain a sprig of seasoning... More

It's no secret anymore. Everyone knows about the authentic Thai food and rich flavors. When it gets busy, the service is so-so, but it is totally worth the wait. Things that are not to be missed: Tom Kah Gai soup, spring rolls, deep fried trout with mango salad (I know. Get over it. It's great.) It is a crowd-pleaser whether... More
