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

Arrived at 7:20, ordered soup as starter and main courses at 7:30. The table next to us, that ordered the same time, got their food within less than 10 minutes. We asked whether the soup is going to be served soon. Were assured it would arrive very soon. Eventually, the people at the table next to us were finished and... More

Went here with co-workers. We sampled each other's dishes. Everything was fabulous. Service was timely. Very clean! Have never had Pad Thai that tasted so good. Fresh noodles, jumbo fresh shrimp, plump mussels, etc. Must stop here!

I had placed a to go order for some food. On our way there our dog got out and was hit by a car. We had to take him to an emergency vet. I received at least 50+ calls from the restaurant owner yelling and screaming at me wondering why I did not pick my order up. Even after explaining... More

We didn't know the place or recommendations. We were hungry after a day at Sequoia Ntnl Park. After a quick look at the menu and the restaurant mood, we decided to stay. The owner/manager was very helpful and kind suggesting the menu and combinations. We tasted 4 dishes and all of them really delicious (Soup, Pineapple Shrimp Curry, Pork Spiced... More
