Best Mango Roll you'll ever find!!!

I've never had a mango roll before, but this was amazing!!! The fresh basil was tasty and aromatic and mango was plentiful. The peanut sauce was perfect. Large roll for $7.95 is almost a meal. I also ordered my favorite dish- panang curry with chicken. it was good, but then I realized they... read more

This restaurant never disappoints! Food is always delicious! The value for the food is awesome! The menu has a wide range of outstanding dishes. Each visit I try something new and have yet to find anything that was not superb. We usually bring friends as it is a great place to catch up and enjoy great food. I do not... More

This is one of the best Thai restaurants in the country. Located on main street in the heart of Carson City you can get fresh Thai cuisine served with a smile. I have eaten here over 20 times and never had a bad meal.

Hands down the best Thai food I ever had. Since I use Tripadvisor I'm rarely disappointed but also rarely are my expectations beaten by far like they were at The Basil. Outstanding duck ("honey duckling"). Go for it! I'd love to go back.

The food was really fresh and tasty. I might take a quarter star off for the cold rice, but everything else was outstanding. My Tom Kha Gai (Coconut chicken soup) was as good as any I've had anywhere. My wife's Tom Yum Goong (Hot and sour shrimp soup) was excellent. Our main dish, large enough to be shared, was assorted...

This is a fairly moderate priced restaurant. The food is always good and ample portions. Service is friendly and good. I have ate there for business and just with family. I give it a great place to eat in Carson City if your like Curry type food.
