Love the red curry dish

Thai basil is a very important part of Manchester! Consistently good thai food, and the lunch menu is a great deal. Beautiful restaurant for dining and great for takeout as well. The coconut red curry is hands down my favorite dish.

The location of this wonderful Thai restaurant , is in an historic downtown building. I have not had the pleasure of dining in, but have had take out twice. Both times the food was prepared and packaged perfectly and arrived home warm and ready to eat. I look forward to eating more of the many wonderful Thai Basil Selections!

Eight family members were at the Northshire Bookstore after fun shopping at the outlets.. We popped into Thai Basil to have lunch before some of us had to head back home. We each had different appetizers and lunches.. We shared around the table and agreed their good was tasty! It was a fun time with good service and good food.

I stopped by this restaurant to order take out. I should have read the reviews before I decided to have thai for dinner. I ordered my dinner with the bartender for 1 appetizer, 1 salad and 1 noodle dish. It was a 40 minutes wait for the food. Given, that the restaurant did not look busy: the bar have 4... More

A group of us were in Manchester at a workshop. We decided to splurge a little and go to Thai Basil. It was a little pricey but the food was outstanding. Several of us purchased side dishes and shared them. Each one of them was carefully prepared and delightfully presented on their respective plates. But most important of all--the food... More

The menu is extensive and the portions were enormous. Service was excellent. Our server was very friendly and gave us ideas on places to visit while vacationing.
