Don't be deterred by the nondescript storefront appearance or the sparse decor. This place shines where it counts; food, service, cleanliness and cost. Very friendly and pleasant service. We shared the scallion pancake, garlic beef, and fried ice cream, all were delicious and perfectly sized portions since we weren't taking food back to the hotel with us. If this were... More

The staff and the food were great. I would highly recommend Basil Thai Restaurant. The red curry chicken was excellent. It was the late Fall so patrons were few but I did notice that they received many take out orders.

The exterior is "unassuming" but the restaurant was comfortable and the food excellent. We had the lunch specials and all 4 of us thought the meal both very well prepared and reasonably priced. My special was the cashew nut with tofu only mildly spiced. This restaurant was a real treat for our vegetarian guests.

We had a wonderful dinner last evening at this restaurant, We both stated with Tom Yum soup. It was just the right heat. My soup had huge shrimp, my husband had the beef. He thoroughly enjoyed it!!The noodles by the beach was excellent and the pineapple fired rice, absolutely delicious? Our waiter was friendly and attentive. The kitchen can be... More

Took a chance and tried this place out for an early dinner. No other patrons so was a bit skeptical. Glad we did because food was delicious. Started with veggie fresh rolls, which could have used more herbs and looked a bit sad with pale lettuce, but they were still good. For entrees we shared beach noodles (pad kee mao?)... More

The little gem is withing walking distance from our home but like many others reviewers have said the row of stores doesn't look to spiffy. It seems to be recently painted and the inside is just simple but the food is the best Thai food we've ever had. Fresh, crispy, tasty, just mouth watering delicious. Another bonus is you can...

To start, thank the other reviews for convincing us to this location. We drove by it looking for our motel and I comment there is a Thai restaurant. The food was very good. My starter was a golden bag followed by Pad Thai with chicken and shrimp. The starter was crispy wonton bag stuff with sweet corn and chicken. The... More

So flavorful and delicious! The Duck Choo Chee is to die for. Pad Thai full of large shrimp and the noodles were delicious. Great chicken satay. Wonderful Noodles by the Beach. Overall, scrumptious food at a good price.

From the outside, for that matter from the inside too, the restaurant doesn't offer much of an appeal. Based upon TripAdvisor reader reviews, we overlooked the appearance and experienced one of the best Thai meals ever. Service was very attentive and fast, the meal was an unexpected delight and the price was downright cheap. We shared steamed dumplings cooked to... More

These folks are super nice and accommodating. All the food is amazing and fresh, though the portions are on the small side. The spicy calamari is amazing. The duck on the beach is also really good. They use tons of fresh ginger and garlic, very fresh and appetizing.
