I had not been here in probably 7 years, but wanted to see if it was as good as I remembered it being, when I lived in the neighborhood. This place used to be packed on a Saturday night, which is why I made reservations. Turns out they weren't necessary. For a long while, our party was the only one... More

Our server at was one of the worst I've ever had. He was rude and abrasive, we were the only table he had yet he was slow with every aspect of waiting. Meanwhile one other server had the other 5 or 6 tables occupied. He seemed to be fast and polite. I'm not sure why it was this way, but... More

We stayed in downtown Denver 7/30/14 and 7/31/14. We got into town around 9pm so we were limited as to what could be delivered to our hotel. We had a craving for Asian food, and the front desk at the TownePlace Suites gave us a list with a series of restaurants that delivered after hours. Thai Basil was on the... More

There are lots of good Thai restaurants in Denver. This one is OK, but the service is severely lacking. Not only slow and inattentive, but with an attitude. We ordered pot stickers as an appetizer. After a long wait, the server brought a plate of oil-soaked pot stickers. After a long time to get the server's attention, we asked him... More

We didn't eat in the restaurant- we had take out. I wasn't overly impressed- the crab wontons were the best part of the whole meal. I didn't care for the spring rolls at all and the scallops were just okay. We'll probably try someplace else next time.

Having gone to other Thai Basil locations around the Denver area I was surprised when visiting this location to find a run down establishment with very dark lighting and below average food when compared with their other locations. The soup was luke warm and fairly tasteless. The entrees were only average in quality, appearance and taste as compared again to... More

Located just a couple of blocks from the convention center, this place draws quite a crowd during business days. We had a 20 minute wait at 1 pm on a Tuesday. The food is okay, not very spicy at all. My usual order of green curry was served up quickly and came with a lot of rice. The dish was... More

This food wasn't so bad that I couldn't eat it but l don't plan to return. We had red curry, chicken soup, spring rolls, and cheese wontons at Thai Basil. Everything was just mediocre. Specifically, the chicken they put in the soup and curry was fatty and the pieces were too big for my taste. Generally, there didn't seem to... More
