Great Pad Thai!

Went here with some friends and had the best pad thai! Their drinks are also pretty good. Looking for some great thai uptown? Go to Basil!

The best coconut soup I think I have ever had. I also had the ginger chicken which was good. Nice atmosphere and friendly bartender/waiter.

We went on a Saturday night but were able to get a table for two. The waitress was very helpful in explaining the menu and spice levels. The food was fresh and tasty. The papaya salad was different than what I have eaten in Thailand but still tasty. The green curry was excellent.

We visited this restaurant when traveling on business to Charlotte. This restaurant is clean and spacious, but the food is just average. I wouldn't rave about this restaurant to everyone I know or anything, but the food was good. Not sure I would go out of my way to visit this place again.

My husband believes it should be law that all other Thai restaurants have Basil's recipe, so he wont have to each sub par pad thai again! Great pad thai, good service. Bring your sweater though, as even the employees appeared chilly the winter evening we were there last. As this restaurant is uptown, be prepared to pay to park. The... More

This place was just so delicious! The service was great and the food was so good. We will definitely be coming back here again! We got the fresh spring/summer rolls and the stuffed shrimp for appetizers. For our entree we ordered the prik khing with chicken. If I was there for another day, I would have gone back again!

We did a team lunch here. Pretty crowded but very organized and the service is quick. Try the Tom kha gai soup. Decently priced for the location , food, ambience and service.

The restaurant is very pleasant. The service is good and the food is good. My quibble is that there are other places with just as good Thai food in Charlotte that do not charge $16 for Pad Thai

Went with a group as we heard good things about Basil. Unfortunately, our experience was much less than desired. With a party of 8, 3 dinners had to be sent back. My wife ordered a Shrimp & Chicken dish.. When it arrived, there was no shrimp. After sending it back, the dish was returned with ONE shrimp and the dinner... More
