We went for dinner while on vacation. The food was great and staff was attentive and friendly. We both got pad kee mao.. The veggies were fresh and the meal was super yummy.

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

We were looking for a quick but delicious late lunch, and Thai Basil simply fit the bill. The service was excellent, the food met my husband's desire for really hot Thai and mine for mild Thai with fresh veggies. Lunching outside was pleasant and relaxing, just the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Oh, and it was almost embarrassing... More

One of the first places I ate when I moved to Black Mountain and I was not disappointed. I had two out of town guests with me and we all enjoyed the food immensely. The only thing that was better than the food was our hilarious waiter. He was a great tease and a lot of fun to be around.

I love the owners and they work hard to provide good service and tasty food. It is quite authentic by American standards. Atmosphere is top notch. Lunch prices are very reasonable. Overall, it's better than several Asheville Thai places.

We eat at Thai Basil on a semi-regular basis, bringing both friends and family along for the experience on occasion, and have never been disappointed. I have been to quite a few Thai restaurants and Thai Basil is a step above most, in terms of food quality, presentation and service. If you want your dish to be extra, extra spicy... More
