I've been wondering about this place and one day decided to give it a try. First ordered Chai Tea which is great love the drink.

I've eaten a lot of Japanese food in my time and this place does excellent sushi rolls and gyoza. Lots of sushi rolls to choose from and the teriyaki is reasonable too. So you can go knowing that is going to be good (can't comment on the Thai side of things as none of our group ordered any). However the... More

Last night, my two kids, husband and I went on a walk looking for dinner options along St.Pete's beach that offered something different from the burgers & fries joints that seem to prevail along the area and we were thrilled to find Basil Leaf!

I got the sushi appetizer and thai hot drunken noodles with tofu. Both were very good. The wasabi was particularly powerful, which I appreciated. Very pleasant atmosphere, nice decor.

Pros: Delicious food if eaten in-house Clean Wi-fi available (free) Cons: Surly service No full liquor license Food taken 'home' is only so-so.

Coming from NYC it says a lot when I say this was great Chinese/Thai. All the ingredients were fresh and it was not oily or heavy.

We went in early, around 1pm for lunch. There were only 3 other people there. Service was fast. Food was good. Nice to get some vegetarian food with all the burgers and such in the area

Best Thai food I've ever had anywhere. Tasty, well executed, visually appealing, many options. Service was at times slow and uneven (one waitperson took an appetite order for one person then 15 minutes later another person took rest of appetizer orders for 6 people; had to wait 35 minutes despite a reservation).
