This place serves great, fresh Thai food. You can easily select your heat factor, which I also enjoy. My favorites are the Chicken Phad Thai, Green Curry with Chicken, and the Spicy Shrimp. They also have smaller portioned lunch specials that come with an appetizer. We often order in on the night shift at work and they are happy to... More

When recently visiting Visalia went back three times within four days! The Fresh Spring Roll and Pad Thai with Shrimp were as expected - delicious. Something new to me was the Tom Kha Kai (cup of soup w chicken) for only $3.50 - yummy. And all four of us raved about the Four King (meat combo fried rice). However, the... More

Of course, that statement is made by me, a Gringo! The food ingredients are fresh, preparation is fresh and you can have the food as spicy or not spicy hot as you want it. But if you want 0 hot, be sure that your waitress understands NO hot.

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
