We were intrigued by our son and daughter-in-laws raves about the great food at Sweet Basil in Norman Oklahoma. Recently we dined there for lunch. The food is good but just average as far as Thai food goes. It's always a bit disappointing to us when a dish touts "vegetables" yet comes with so much rice and so few (and... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the romantic ambience and tasty food. They even have delicious sticky rice with mango! They are a little pricy and their servings are small in comparison, but a great gem nonetheless!

I love to visit Sweet Basil anytime I'm in Norman. The atmosphere is great, servers are friendly and helpful, and the food is delicious. You can select the heat level of your food, so those who love it very hot will not be disappointed. If you're like me though, you like it a little more mild. The fried tofu is... More

nice atmosphere, decent food, great service. the soup was pretty good. i had the garlic beef and that was decent. the thai iced tea was a little too sweet and it needed more cream.

We are always on the lookout for good Thai food and tried this place. It's a little bit pricier than some of the other options we've tried in Norman, but the environment is nice and the food is good. The pineapple fried rice is outstanding!

The best in Norman. I went out on a quest to find the best Thai food in Norman. This is it. Very good. Only thing I wish is they gave bigger portions.

Sweet Basil has been on our list of places to try, and we finally did. We loved it! It was excellent, quality food. The atmosphere was very warm and inviting, the perfect place for a quiet, extended evening. We've already picked up take-out several times since our first visit.

I really enjoy Sweet Basil's pad thai and tom yum soup! The tom yum is pretty spicy but really good! A bit pricey, but very good thai food. The inside is pretty cool too. And I Sundays I think they deliver now which is pretty sweeeeet

Well. the food was not bad, except mine had a rock in it. I bit down on it and thought I had cracked a tooth. I have not seen a dentist yet... Anyway, the waitress knocked 50% off that one entree, which is less than one would have expected, since I had eaten half of it before finding the rock... More

This extremely pleasant little Thai restaurant is tucked into a small storefront on Norman's Main Street, but the interior will surprise you: It's quiet, serene, and attractive, conducive to a romantic meal, a small gathering of friends, or a business dinner. The food is delicious and the staff are attentive without getting in the way of your privacy.
