We had a list of where to eat in Black Mountain, but one day just stopped into Thai Basil at an off-time. By the time we were finished the place was quite busy! Husband had the noodles and I had a salad. Best I've ever had - so much is fresh in Black Mountain and this lettuce was better than... More

Food was fairly tasty but not as spicy as I would have expected. I usually order a step below "Thai hot" and it's quite an experience elsewhere. Here, it barely registered as spicy on my tongue. Service was average, atmosphere average, restroom disappointing (no towels).

Our food was absolutely delicious; service was friendly and efficient; and the outside courtyard is beautiful. We stopped here for lunch mainly because so many of the other restaurants in Black Mountain seemed to feature some version of sandwiches, and we were looking for something out of the ordinary. We weren't disappointed in the least and would highly recommend this... More

We were passing through Black Mountain and tried Thai Basil for some change in fare. Honestly the food was average to good but not the best Thai I have had anywhere. We tried the Dim Sum as it is listed on the menu (wasn’t Dim Sum) so don’t be misled, it was Thai dumplings and we knew that from the... More

I love Thai food...and have driven by this place several times, questioning if it would be really any good. Darn. Should have come here earlier. It was wonderful. Stopped by here for lunch and got Pad Thai, knowing that is a perfectly unhealthy dish filled with noodles. Well..not here! Yes, there are SOME noodles, of course, but there was plenty... More

Want a real Thai experience, here's the place you want to eat before you go up onto the Parkway or before you head to Asheville. My first time eating here, and I will be back. Very flavorful, freshly prepared to order by Thai's from Thailand. Beat the big city crowd and stop here in Black Mountain. Only moments off Interstate... More

We ordered appetizers and they were excellent. Made a great meal, fresh and with good portion size. The sweet rice mango dessert was a real hit. Restaurant environment very pleasant. Service excellent.

Favorite spot for a taste of Thai food, freshly prepared, interesting choices,always good service. Unpretentious converted gas station with outside seating and comfy, low-lighting seating inside.

If I had to sum up this review it would be: Good food, good service, fair price, and very friendly people. My wife and I picked up our daughter (who has a limited lunch period) and went there on a week day. We were greeted by a very friendly man at the door and immediately escorted back to a table....
