Right on the main road in Black Mountain. Staff is friendly and food is really great. We love lingering there and ordering lots of appetizers, mains, and teas.

Who knew that you could find such good Thai food in the mountains of NC. Definitely worth getting out for a meal here. I had Pad Thai and it was awesome. They will adjust the spice level for those like me that do not do hot.

Everything at Thai Basil is well made and fresh. The coconut soup will warm you up, the pad thai is peanutty and invigorating. The seasonal sticky rice and mango will leave you wanting more!

Restaurant was on a wait with tables openly visible. Hostess sat us at a nice table but we were not greeted for 10 plus minutes. Server did apologize. Before our appetizers were delivered, another tables appetizers were brought to our table. The server helped get them to the correct table. Meals took forever. We had great conversation at the table... More

I could eat here every day and enjoy! Great fresh food. Wen, the owner/Chef goes above and beyond to need needs of customers. If you dont see it on the menu, just ask. All is good.

While the food was very good and the decor sweet, felt rushed by staff to finish the meal. We arrived an hour and a half before closing, ordered promptly, food arrived promptly with 45 minutes till closing. The waiter hovered waiting for our empty plates, asked several times if we wanted anything else because they were shutting off the grill... More

Starving in a mountain town, somehow Thai food didn't seem a good choice, but it was OK Thai food. That's all, just good decent food. We like Thai food, this was not awful, nor was it outstanding!

This is my "drive thru" place when I'm traveling from Asheville back to Hickory. It's right off I40, exit 64. I call my order in to go and it's ready when I get there. I love Thai food and I love how everybody has their own twist on pad Thai. This one is the fresh twist. Lime, bean sprouts, peanuts..... More
