It's nice to find GOOD ethnic food when vacationing. When you are obligated to eat out so many nights in a row, it is nice to find something other than pizza, or bad Chinese, to mix up the multiple restaurant meals. Thai Basil was tasty, nicely prepared food. The great bar helped, as did access to outdoor seating. An enjoyable... More

The food quality is very good. The wait staff however, is intent on trying to get you to order what they want to sell you. This leads to miscommunication and food brought that is not what you wished. It ruined what could have been a nice meal. Advice-listen to your customers

I frequent this restaurant often. The red curry with vegetables and jasmine rice is my favorite. Also the appetizers, crab angels, edamame and basil spring rolls are excellent. Food is always hot and comes out quickly. The only disappointment was my husband's Pad Thai, very average. Daryl the bartender serves up awesome Cosmo's and martini's. Enjoy! Lunch menu is very...

Great place for a light lunch. My husband and I were eating heavy dinners on vacation, and I was wanting something lighter for lunch. We stopped in and had shrimp spring rolls and an orange Cosmo. It hit the spot. The food was great as well as the service.

This is the second time this year that we've had lunch here and loved our selection of 4 appetizers to share. One day we'll get back there for a dinner meal. They had outdoor dining.

On a recent trip to Manchester Vermont my wife and I decided we wanted to try something a little out of the ordinary. We noticed Thai Basil right on main street. It's hard to miss as they have an outdoor dining area right in front of the restaurant. We ate in there outside dining area it was a nice choice.... More

My nephew chose this restaurant. He has been here many times. What a good choice! Our server Denice was very knowledgable and helpful with the menu. She also has a great personality. We all enjoyed our food. Cudos to the cooks. All of the staff was very friendly. Make this restaurant one of your stops.

Massaman curry is quite good. I would ask for more veggies in it, however. The basil spring rolls are scrumptious. The patio is cute. Wait staff was adequate, although distracted at times by a cooking show on the Food Network. This was funny since there were no patrons at the bar.
