My daughter and family love spicy Thai food and brought me here for my first real exposure! The appetizer platter was great with a sampling of lightly fried calamari, veggie spring roll, mini fried egg roll, and amazing chicken satay with famous peanut sauce. Crab cake appetizer was delicious crusted with coconut breading! I don't like anything hot, so loved... More

This is hands-down my favorite Thai food in North County. I LOVE the Sweet Crispy Chicken Basil dish, and their garlic shrimp is delicious.

The ambiance was kind of "weird," as it was very quiet for a Saturday night. But the service was good and the food excellent. Not to mention the wine. You are in Paso Robles, after all ;-)

Wow! Loved the food and so did my wife. Nice place and decent service. Location was smack downtown. Ate green curry with rice and my wife ate salmon in a banana leaf with coconut rice. Drank thai coffee. Probably the tastiest thai food I've eaten.

Really good Thai food and a cheaper, more casual alternative to other downtown Paso restaurants catering to the wine tasting crowd. Clean, modern restaurant with full bar, including local Paso wines. Serves what are possibly the best green and red curries I’ve ever had.

We had visited here two years ago and had a wonderful meal with great service. Apparently something has happened and this could almost be called the "Attention Deficit Disorder" Restaurant. The wait staff including host and server all seemed very distracted and kept looking away to other tables even while taking our order. The food was OK as Thai food... More

My wife and I went to Basil Thai for dinner while on vacation in Paso Robles. The restaurant is located on the downtown square. There is very large menu. We loved the service and the food was very good. We were looking for something different one night and I'm glad we went to restaurant. Highly recommend for those looking for... More

We had two great dinners at Basil last October when we visited Paso Robles. This time, our dinner was good but not outstanding.

What a great vibe and great service - and food was very good and quantities were excellent. Loved this place ! Our waiter recommended some very good choices for us to try and we were not disappointed, however it was a little spicy - one persons medium is another persons HOT! but was very very tasty and flavorful !
