Excellent Thai!

The food is delicious and staff are wonderful. I usually order ahead for pick up but have also dined in. The place is small, good for couples. Hours and days of service vary so make sure you plan ahead. Prices are reasonable. Very yummy!

Thai food is one of my favourites and this restaurant hasn't disappointed. The service is "no nonsense" but efficient and the place appears to be well run. I really like it and am looking forward to returning.

This place is SO good! LOVE their Pad Thai and Spring Rolls. Prices are ok, shoot for a combo or lunch special. If you order individual plates, it's gonna cost ya. But the food really is so good.

Decent food but they are a little expensive for Thai food. There are better, less expensive places in visalia.

We were on our way back from Sequoia NP and looking for a place to eat along the way to the hotel. It was more difficult than we thought because most restaurants around there were only open until 9 p.m. or even 8 p.m. We chose Thai Basil because they close at 9 p.m. and again, conveniently located on the...

Our family maybe eats out once or twice a week, and Thai Basil is always our first choice. We have been eating here for years, and have never had an unsatisfying meal. We love to eat family style, and get multiple dishes with varying flavors. The Fresh Spring Rolls are always amazing, and the best I've had. Other dishes that... More

Everything is great, but, be careful, you could end up waiting for a period of time. They take many telephone take out orders, and on Friday and Saturday, you could be for a wait. They put out the meals in the order they were taken, phone or in restaurant. So you may be behind many called in orders, and sit... More

I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. This is my second favorite eatery in the valley, well, it's tied for first place actually. The food is phenomenal, for lack of a better word. The dining room may be a tad small and sometimes service may seem to drag but the food is more than worth it, and the... More
