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

We were back in town with our oldest daughter who was running in the Thunder Road marathon. Since she loves Thai food, we used Trip Advisor to find this gem. The appetizers were all excellent. I had pork Nam Sod for the first time. Although my "chef's special" Red Curry Duck was only OK, my wife and daughter both loved... More

I work in the downtown area and have been to this restaurant tonnes of times. The food is always excellent and has been like that for years, but this place has some real issues. If you are visiting Charlotte and are in the downtown area for lunch, if you are visiting after 12 PM, its really hard to get a... More

Fantastic Thai food, made to your spice preference. Plenty of seating with nice atmosphere. Good acoustics so you don't have to yell. They take reservations which is a plus for large groups. If you have a group of five or more they add gratuity for you, so read your bill.

I eat here at least once or twice a month for lunch. I love their Pad Thai, it's fantastic. I've noticed that the portions have shrunk and the price slightly increased though. As far as service goes, it's mixed. I've had good and I've had bad. I have, on two separate occasions, witnessed the managers be extremely rude to customers... More

The food was wonderful. All your traditional Thai dishes, served quickly and fresh. Nice atmosphere for a date or a business luncheon. Price was reasonable and they also had a full bar. Pineapple Mojitos were also great. Staff was attentive. One of the best thai dinners Ive had and I frequent big City spots with excellent food. This is among... More

We ordered takeout from here since this restaurant was conveniently a block away from our hotel. The dishes were extremely delicious although a little expensive (the entrees were over $15). We ordered ginger chicken -- this dish was wonderful, it had a very nice ginger taste to it. We also ordered the pad woon sen with steamed tofu. I loved... More
