I was very happy with my lunch at The Basil Leaf. The sushi was very fresh and the portions were very generous. I will go back again tomorrow for lunch just because I enjoyed it so much. Great value also, very reasonable.

We love Thai food and tried the Basil Leaf twice in the month of February 2015. This place gets busy, so time your trip accordingly. I should start out by saying we are not Sushi eaters; however, the sushi presentations that I saw being delivered to other tables was a feast for the eyes. We ordered more traditional Thai food...

I chose Basil Leaf at the recommendation of local St. Pete residents and I had a great meal. I only order sushi while dining with friends; unfortunately, I was solo this trip. It's just too much food alone because I like to try a variety of choices. However, my ginger chicken tasted as delicious as the beautiful presentation with an... More

I have been a regular patron to the Basil Leaf since opening night. - Great sushi - Try the Spicy Tuna, actually has a strip of fresh jalapeno though it which really lifts it above the standard spicy mayo version. The Pad Kee Moa also a particular favorite. Great food Good Service makes this one of my go-to restaurants

Our visit here was a very pleasant surprise. Our dinners were very tasty and nicely presented. Portions were large with both of us having to take home leftovers. I ordered my dinner extra spicy and it actually came that way. Prices were very reasonable - great value for money spent.

This place is delicious, great service and the food comes out hot and fresh. Pad thai is one of the best we will be back.

The food was excellent. The portions were generous and the spicing was perfect. This was one of the best dining experiences we've had in quite a while.

Only a few parking slots in front of this unassuming venue make you think it's less than popular but locals know it's a go to spot--go around to the side and get in line. Creative sushi/low calorie but tasty soups (King of the Sea my favorite)/dependable Thai entrees such as Pad Thai/and attractive presentations from willing to please chefs make... More
