Who would have thunk it ? World class Thai in Carson City NV. Clean, handsome restaurant with outstanding food. Me and the kids drove about 40 minutes from S. Lake Tahoe and had a feast - Pad Thai, Wonton Soup, Chicken Satay and Curry Puffs - all absolutely first rate. Coming from NYC - I thought we had the good... More

y husband and I LOVE The Basil. We have been there five or six times since I read the Yelp reviews and I am so happy we decided to try it. The service is always wonderful! It seems as if every server stops to check on you. They are very attentive and last time we visited the Chef/Owner stopped by... More

The Basil has always been one of our favorites; we revisited it again with our German-Thai chef friend. He declared it now the best Thai place in the Reno-Tahoe-Carson area. Even the carry-out is outstanding.

Wound up here because our usual restaurant was closed. The staff is courteous, attentive and helpful. Menu selection is vast with more choices than you could eat. Food was cooked fresh, fast and served hot. All requests were accepted by the server and the food was excellent. Wound up here 2 times in the same week and the 2nd experience... More

If you visit Carson City, then, be sure to try The Basil. This is Thai food at its best. We started with the chicken satay. Then, we had wonton soup which is full of vegetables, shrimp and several wonton which were stuffed full with ground shrimp and pork. Next up was roasted duck salad which was as beautiful as it...

Elegant and friendly staff. Very nice atmosphere with outstanding Thai menu. We love the coconut chicken soup. Their teas are very nice. Excellent mid town eatery. Nice place to meet friends.

This is my gold standard of Thai restaurants. I try Thai places whenever I'm traveling, but would be hard pressed to say I've ever eaten anywhere as good as The Basil. Food is always amazing, service is excellent, atmosphere is charming. We're regulars, so I get a hug when I come in and they start our mango rolls when we... More
