We have eaten here several times on trips over the years and always been impressed. This time I was somewhat disappointed. We enjoyed the curry puffs as our appetizer - so yummy and not very many Thai restaurants seem to offer them. My disappointment was with the entree I ordered - Alaskan King Crab and Jumbo Shrimp Curry. I expected... More

Wandered in here after a dusty morning outside of Carson City looking for some light yet filling fare. As in, we were hungry, but not for a big burger and fries or some such. The Basil was a revelation - really. Where do these folks come from? How do they end up n Carson City, NV? However it came to... More

We eat here pretty regularly and are never disappointed. Friendly, attentive staff. My favorite is the Pad See. My husband likes the curries. Always a treat. We have done lunch and dinner here.

Great service and consistently great food make this one of the only places to dine in Carson City. Clean, pleasant atmosphere, friendly staff. The food is superb. Can't say enough. You will not be disappointed.

We enjoyed the pad thai noodles for lunch, and it was delicious. Lunch came with a delicious light soup, salad and an app. The service was warm and pleasant. Highly recommended!

When I have eaten in at Basil, the food is excellent. Carry out was good. I'd give it a 3 1/2 stars, but since that option wasn't available, I gave them the benefit of the doubt. Our group had shrimp pad thai, Curry Chicken, Pad See Ew, and crispy bbq chicken. Everything was good, but nothing spectacular.

Walked away very pleased. The food here was on point! I went with green curry and shrimp based on a recommendation from our server and was not disappointed. I was impressed with how quickly our dishes came out, how my glass of water did not go below 1/4 of its glass (essential when eating spicy Thai!), and how clean the... More

We had the pleasure dining here almost 2 years ago. Since we live in the Midwest we are unable to come here often. We made a large trip detour to make sure we could dine here again. I had the yellow curry with chicken. It was like a very pleasant dance of my taste buds. There was a slight problem... More

The Basil in Downtown Carson City is a good thai and Asian restaurant. The owner and staff have been very friendly and served us with a smile throughout the evening. The food was very good and we didn't wait long for it. The prices are a little over average, but the quality of food and service and the atmosphere in... More
