Delicious spicy Thai food, draft local beer and friendly service. What's not to love? Definitely worth a visit

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

We ordered Spicy Basil Shrimp. The meal was adequate. For $17.00, our expectations were much higher. Clean. Nice, fully stocked bar. Tables outside. Friendly Staff.

This Thai food is better than what we have found in Boston! The service was friendly, as well. We had a wonderful experience.

Expensive but delicious food including the dessert.Cozy place to eat. The service was slow but the taste of the food was worth waiting. They missed my one order but they were able to served it at once after I reminded them I still want it. The lady who served us was friendly. Overall ,our experience in that restaurant was wonderful.

A group of us ate here one night after attending the Vermont horse show. The food was really good. Everyone enjoyed their meals. I ordered the spicy crispy pineapple chicken (it was served in half a pineapple) and it was delicious. It was just the right amount of spice for me and it was beautifully presented. I wish I had...

We had a delicious meal here. Selected a few dishes and accompanied them with a couple of martinis, which were special and superb. The food itself was very tasty as well. While prices are relatively high, it was money well spent for such excellent food.

Visited Thai Basil last year and the food seemed to have more flavor. Maybe they changed cooks or recipes? My daughter and her friends liked their entrees, mine was a bit bland. The service was sooo slow and almost non-existent.

So called Thai food. Very mediocre. Not seasoned well. Stir fry was just average. Service was quick and professional. Outside eating marred by traffic noises and automobile exhaust.

Four of us (2 couples) ate there on 7/23. There were about two dozen women and fewer than six men. The noise level was disruptive. Shouting at each other is the new way to talk I guess. Also, our meals were not cheap and not worth the money. I chose scallops with a cashew nut and other ingredient combination. There... More
