Have had both lunch and dinner here and both were very good. Food is fresh, staff is excellent, and there is outside dining as well as lovely inside seating.

Thai Basil is our go to lunch when we are visiting Manchester. The portions are huge and their lunch specials are great. The prices for lunch are extremely reasonable. Dinner is also fantastic. The food is awesome and the servers are very helpful and attentive. This is the best lunch spot in town.

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.

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.

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.
