A pal and I were visiting the Carson Valley last weekend. On Saturday evening we checked Trip Advisor for dining options. How could we pass up the Number One rated place? The waiter helped us pick out selections and vino. Everything was fantastic. The food arrived quickly even though they were busy and the overall experience was superb.

I arrived just before closing on a Monday night (after calling a few times for directions) and they could not have been more gracious to have me! The seafood salad was wonderful with the lime dressing. Nice atmosphere, great food and wonderful service. Now I see why it was rated #1 in Carson City!

Food is innovative, tasty (can have it hot), and fresh. Good way to expand food horizons from different cultures.

My son and I ate at the Basil and it was fabulous! There were so many delightful things about the meal...texture, layers of tasty flavors, visual appeal. Thai cooking at its best!
