This restaurant was a surprise. It's rather hidden, but near the Settler's Cemetery and behind the Marriott. It's larger on the inside that it appears to be. Our waiter was excellent. Based on his recommendations, we ordered drinks (like a NC beer and an Asian Pear Martini) and lovely food. The dishes were not only fabulous - the presentation was... More

Our visit to Basil was a great experience. Waiter Brinson explained menu and answered all our questions clearly. Food was hot, delicious and enough for two. Try the wontons - so good! Parking deck nearby is reasonably priced.

Being new to Charlotte I searched for a reasonable Thai establishment, as it is one of our favorite cuisines. SO glad we gave this spot a chance. We arrived around 7:20 on a Friday night and only waited about 10 minutes to be seated, despite the place being packed. They do not accept reservations between the hours of 6:45 and... More

Went out with friends for dinner at Thai. I had the coconut soup and beef salad, since I was looking for Paleo friendly options. The coconut soup was plentiful and we shared it among 5 people. I thought the portions were all generous. We had all courses. Apps, dinner, dessert and great cocktails! The waitstaff seemed to work as team... More

Basil Thai has opened a second restaurant in Charlotte. It is housed where Jo Jo's Bistro used to be in Stonecrest Shopping Center (in Ballantyne). The food and service were great and I really liked how they lightened the atmosphere. Portion sizes were large as you would expect for an Asian Restaurant.

I thought this restaurant was very nice. The food was average but the lighting and ambience was very appealing to me. The service was good and I will probably return.

I stopped here for lunch and seeing the line inside and every table full I knew I hit the right spot. I had a ten minute wait, and during that wait the line waiting just got longer even with some people deciding not to wait. The staff was friendly, chatting freely with someone from out of state. I had egg... More
