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.

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 !

I've eaten here a couple of times before, and have always been pleased. I like their vegetarian meals and the freshness of their food. This time I was there for an early dinner, and I had the Satay Chicken and the Eggplant Salad, which were both excellent.

We visit Paso every year, we eat here at least 2 times in our 8 day trip. Sometimes more. We have NEVER been disappointed, not with the food or the staff.

Food was great, room was a wee bit dark and required our phone light to read the menu. Other than that, atmosphere was nice.

Love the variety of Thai dishes. Not the same menu as every other Thai restaurant. The place is busy so make reservations or get there early. Very good service. A real go-to place in Paso.
