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.

With limited options we didn't know what we would find - but this place was far more than just satisfactory! Would highly recommend on any night of the year. One in our party said the crispy duck was the best he's ever had! High praise coming from someone whose had many duck meals in his lifetime! Curries were delicious and... More

Thai Basil was a lovely stop for lunch. As a Thai restaurant in the wintery village of Manchester, it's not something you would normally look for to keep that warm New England-y feeling. Nonetheless we did enjoy our lunch and the service was great!

Great food, with a nice atmosphere, they also are great with accommodating allergies and kids! This is a restaurant we go to every year and enjoy it. Not very fancy, but great quality.

We walked in to Thai Basil restaurant in Manchester tonight and had a terrific meal - one of our best dinners in quite some time. The restaurant has two rooms, a lively front with a bar and a few tables. The dining room to the side is quieter. Tonight both rooms were filled and the wait at the bar was... More

We didn't really know anything about this restaurant but it looked nice with it white table clothes. Despite the fact we had hiking clothes on we were not deterred. Once the lunch crowd started hopping, we shouldn't have feared. The dress was a mix of chic to, well, hiking clothes! Our waiter was pleasant. We ordered the spring rolls. Oh... More

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.
