great Thai in Paso Robles

I find this food too sweet for my tastes though it may be appropriate for most American palates. Good location and comfortable inside but the food is nothing special.

We always seem to stop at Basil Thai when we are in Paso Robles. They have an excellent appetizer platter with a little bit of everything. That, together with an entrée is just the right amount for dinner. The first time we were here we ordered way too much food but learned from our mistake. On this visit we had... More

My daughter in law and I had dinner here and it is my opinion that it has the best Thai food on the central coast. Started with Thai Rolls. We had two dishes, Pai Thai Noodle and Pad See Eaw Noodle with beef, that we shared and finished our meal with a yummy coconut creme brûlée. Both entrees were delicious... More

A pleasant surprise. Probably one of the least expensive meals we had in the downtown area. Would consider returning.

We popped in for a quick bite and ended staying for a while. The food was so great, the wait staff we friendly and knowledgeable, and the ambiance is very comfortable. The flavors were all subtle and nothing we had was over done. The ice tea was cold and the food came out hot. I will be back every time... More

Everything from greeting to recommend food items was great. Then the food arrived. Outstanding. Atmosphere is nice. Great for a date. Open kitchen so you can see them prepare your food with fresh ingredients. Try it if wine tasting. Will open up your senses for more tasting the next day.

Would have given 5 stars but the restaurant was a bit noisy. My husband ordered our green curry with medium heat. Too hot for me. If we return, I will definitely go with mild.

When in the Paso area I always try to visit Basil Thai for lunch or dinner. The food is great and the service staff is extremely helpful. This last trip I tried a new starter - Golden Bag. It was savory and very mild tasting. I spiced up the meal with Pad Kee Mow, which is a spicy rice noodle.... More

From the large glass pitchers full of fruit and iced water sitting on the counter the experience is charming. Right on the main square in Paso Robles this dining is a treat. Delicious food and plenty of it. I love the flavors of this restaurant. I come back whenever I visit Paso Robles!
