I've eaten here a few times, decent Thai food. I have had better but I also have been to 40-50 Thai restaurants in the state of California. Toss in a few more fresh herbs and spices, this could be a top 5 restaurant for me.

Pretty much everything on their menu is awesome. Orange chicken is amazing!!! They close in mid-afternoon then reopen for dinner so watch your clock.

While not the most spacious place I've ever enjoyed, the Pad Thai is hands down the best ever. The orange chicken is a family favorite & don't miss the satay.

I had lunch there today. I have eaten at Thai Basil in the past, but It has now been a year or more since I was there. I do remember having very good food, but sometimes with poor service. On better days, the owner would actually visit with each table to make sure we were enjoying the meal. Today I... More

Love love love this place; it's the best Thai food ever and we have become regulars. The place is small so get there early (5:00 pm). Service is excellent! We get the level 5 (heat wise) 10 being the spiciest, We enjoy spicy but be careful not to get hotter than 5 (personal opinion),

Whenever I need Thai food, I look no further than Thai Basil. It's not too great, which is sometimes a problem for me, and always delicious. I also like how they ask how hot you want your dishes... it's on a 1 to 10 scale. The downside is that it's a pretty small operation and its so good, they can... More

I was next door conducting some business when my stomach decided it was hungry. I saw the Thai Basil sign and decided to give it a try. When I enter the place it was small, cozy and very clean. My order was taken promptly and food served in less than five minutes. The food was great and the spice was... More

Overall disappointed with food and service. Untrained wait staff. Chicken was tough and dry. This used to be my favorite Thai food restaurant. Credit card machine down. Out of beef satay.

I went to eat at Thai Basil for the first time. I was not impress by their food and service. I went there with my wife and the wait for the food took 25 minutes to be served to us. I got bored and hungry and drank all of my water. By the time the food got to our table,... More

We always get the pad see eu whenever we have thai. The pad see eu at Thai Basil was good but certainly not the best I've had. However, the place was packed within 15 minutes of them opening at 5 pm, so I'm thinking they have some EXCELLENT dishes that we just didn't order. I'd definitely eat there again if... More
