My wife, who is Malaysian, and two Chinese friends and I dined twice here during a recent trip to see the Fall in New England. We were attended to by the lady owner on both ocassons, who did not push expensive dishes, as we have experienced in other restaurants, but joined in a lively, albeit brief, discussionon several dishes which...

Located right on Main Street in Manchester this is one of the area's top restaurants. The decor is very tasteful. One enters in front next to the bar. Beyond the bar are tables and further on a separate dining room. All tables are covered in tablecloths and cloth napkins. This is my second time here and just as good as... More

We both enjoyed the best meal of our holiday so far. The menu is easy to read and the choice of Thai dishes excellent. Restaurant was very busy for a normal weekday evening, but service prompt and courteous. Only thing to watch is that they're closed on Wednesdays.

Food was exceptional! Get in early to make a reservation as they get packed. Service was great as were the prices. Definitely going again when we are back in town

I found a review of Thai Basil on a vegetarian travel blog when we found ourselves in the area. I'm so happy we did! There are plenty of vegetarian options, and the server was knowledgable about vegan choices. I love Massaman curry, and Thai Basil's is excellent. We also had the spicy basil stir fry, which was very good. The... More

We had been wanting it go to the Thai Basil for years and this trip we went out of our way to stop here. We were seated in the inside dining room and were the only people there. Several tables were occupied outside. The owner or manager was bossing around all the employees right there in front of us in... More

The Thai iced tea is great. The Musaman curry was good but a little too sweet for my taste. I loved the cashews in my curry. Tom yum soup had good flavoring & it had shrimp. Tasty food. I would come back for more.

This is a quaint restaurant in the center and they offer an excellent selection of Thai food. We were both pleased with our selection and the pricing is reasonable.

We stopped here on a beautiful Sunday afternoon and had great food and very good service. The appetizers - Thai spring roll and chicken satay - were outstanding. Our Pad See Ew and Curried Chicken were also very good. We will return for sure. We had a little glitch when the check was incorrect - not in our favor. It... More
