Very good local Thai

Food is great but at times inconsistent as far as spice goes. I order the same stuff and i like spicy food but sometimes it's just spicy and other times it's nuclear spicy. When you ask to just make it regular spicy they just go ahead and make it not spicy. I realize some peppers are spicier than... read more

We were looking for a good Thai restaurant and our neighbors took us here. Food was very flavorful and not spicy which my wife liked. I ordered a dish that said moderate heat and there was very little. I would have preferred some heat. That was my only complaint. All 4 dishes were tasty. A soup was delicious, steamed dumplings...

We come here roughly once every two months, and have never had a bad experience or meal. It's BYOB, with some different juice choices that the kids love, particularly the mango juice. Our family votes the chickent wings the best of all time, particularly with the Thai dipping sauce. I'm a fan of the vegetable soup with glass noodles, terrific... More

We are locals and love this place. Very, very good food and excellent prices....never have had a bad experience. Only negative is that they bring out main courses too fast. Plus it's a BYOB.

We went to this restaurant on a Monday(July 20th,2015) @ 7:30 pm. When we arrived the place was fairly busy but lots of table available. We ordered a appetizer, but had no utensils or napkins to eat it with. We also ordered a main entree at the same time we ordered our appetizer. Our appetizer arrived fairly quickly. Our main...

We were a large group of 15 including kids. They accommodated us very well. The service was pretty quick. Appetizers came in no time and even the main course was quick. The prices were decent. Neither too high nor was it cheap. Above all the food was tasty and it came in good portion size. The ambience is not bad... More

This is my go-to thai restaurant, hands down. My husband and I don't live quite as close to Sea Girt as we used to, but if we're craving some hot, delicious pad thai we make the trip here. Whether you eat in or take out, the food is always hot and fresh -- and they make it pretty quickly too!... More

Love this place, and they know me and my friends FAR too well. We always have a great time, whether we are a small or large group, or even the times I go there by myself. The only downside is that they charge a ton of money if you want extra shrimp/chicken/beef with your meal. Other than that, it's a... More

I have dined quite frequently at Siam Basil. The food is consistently terrific and each meal has been a treat. The only down side is the wait staff NEVER SMILES! It is a bit off putting, and it would just be nice to be served/greeted with a smile. Not too much to ask.
