Always a good meal.

We have been coming back to Thai Basil for a few years now and the food is always great. The restaurant has been very crowded as of late which is a good thing and the food quality has remained very good. Love to sit by the window tables and watch the snow fall during dinner.

I love Thai Basil. We've ordered across the menu, and the food is fresh and clean tasting (not oily or overcooked). We've never been disappointed. Great martinis too. FYI: If you as for "really spicy," your food will come out REALLY spicy. They are great about preparing the heat to your palate. My only complaint is during weekends when they... More

Decor needs a little updating but I was very impressed with the food and great service. Go for their specials - you won't be disappointed! The cold basil roll was awesome. Their "spicy rating was pretty accurate but *** was as hot as I could take - blowing your nose at the the table is not attractive! I had the... More

Wonderful, authentic Thai food right here in Manchester, Vermont. This place is so good, it rates right up there with any great That restaurant in either New York or Boston. It's that good! The waitstaff is awesome too!!

Not the very best Thai I've had but I was giddy just to find a decent Thai restaurant in southern Vermont. What might be "average" in NYC or NJ seems "very good" in this locale. That being said, Thai Basil served up yummy soup, appetizer and entree (I had the green curry noodles). Mostly I was grateful that the restaurant... More

Food is consistently good. Lots of choices. Will help with your spice needs. Tells what is gluten free. Will prepare according to allergies.

We went to Thai Basil on Saturday night. Glad we had made reservations. The restaurant is not large and there is an active bar so the crowd was getting close to our table in the front window. So much so that the waiter had a difficult time getting to us with our food. The food, however, was delicious. My wife... More

This apparently if a very popular restaurant in Manchester. It is very hard to see why. It is certainly not up to the standards of Thai cooking that I have come to expect in Connecticut, but maybe there are no real quality options in this area of Vermont. Hard to believe there is not something better. Our service was horrible.... More

Food was lovely and price was reasonable. However, the hostess was amazingly rude to us and other customers. People with reservations were summarily told that their reservations could not be met. Fortunately, we got there and were given a seat without incident but I would be wary of returning.
