I planned my stops on a road trip to and from Arizona and Oregon so I could eat twice at Basil. I love this place, the ambiance and the wonderful food. I try something different each time and have yet to be disappointed. On my most recent trip I had the chicken pad thai and it was the best I... More

Wow! We're visiting from the Washington, DC area and tried Basil based on reviews here. SO glad we did! Wonderful flavors and a wide variety of options. The duck arrived in s beautiful serving dish, and the topless seafood was perhaps the best single Thai meal I've had. Highly recommend!

Basil is an excellent Thai restaurant more elegant than average service, a tasty menu, quick service, and a reasonable price. We will always eat there again when in Carson City. We eat a lot of Thai food and this ranks near the top. A surprise in a "cowboy" town.

Had it not been for the reviews in Trip Advisor we might have missed this fantastic restaurant. Service was fantastic and the owner/chef visited every table. She relocated from Thailand and having visited there twice my wife and felt that we were back. The restaurant was loaded with regulars who are lucky to have this resturant in their town. I'm... More

Perfect experience in every aspect...food, atmosphere, and the service! We live at Lake Tahoe, NV and were doing errands in Carson City when we stumbled upon the best Thai food ever. Head to the historic downtown part of Carson City where you will find parking off the main road. We started our meal ordering the Coconut Soup filled with straw... More

Two weeks ago we visited Carson City and was recommended by our hotel to The Basil. One of the best Thai cuisine we had in a long time. The owners (Nan-main chef- and Bob) were very gracious and accommodating to our restricted diet. We had the vegetable dish with the eggplant and green curry. Highly recommend this place!

My wife and two boys visited Basil in early July on a Saturday. We got there as soon as they opened so it was not busy at all. It is a nice place, comfortable and relaxed. The staff was kind and very helpful and helped us make our menu selections. My son had the topless seafood, which was really good... More

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
