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.

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
