This was actually my husband's introduction to food outside Mexican/Italian/American arena and let's just say we've frequented it quite often since then! A huge selection of food choices and always super good. They also have smoothies of all kinds (mango to even avocado!) if you're ever in the mood for them. I always get the ginger onion shrimp and it's... More

Three entrees and two appetizers under $30.00. Freshly made appetizers nothing pre-wrapped or frozen. Service was quite good and food was aromatic and tasty.

I have had better Pad Thai elsewhere. There was little meat and it was mostly a plate of noodles. It came with an egg roll which was good. The service was fast and polite. It was a quick, inexpensive and tasty meal. The hot tea came in a large, heavy mug which doesn't seem right for tea. I wouldn't hesitate... More

Service was beyond slow and waitress was very rude. I do not recommend dining at this establishment.

I've eaten a variety of Thai dishes in many restaurants across the country. I wouldn't snobbishly refer to myself as a Thai "expert," but I have a pretty good idea of what constitutes good Thai food. This is not a place to which I would return again, because they don't make much effort to create authentic Thai dishes. However, considering... More

We recently went to Thai Basil when we were in Springfield for lunch. They have a large menu, with lots of delicious-sounding dishes, Thai, Japanese, etc. We had the shrimp tempura for an appetizer, and it was good. The vegetable soup which came with the meal was a little bland, but the vegetables were fresh. My husband, mother, and I... More

Prior to Thai Basil we always went to the other neighborhood Thai restaurant. Now this is our go to place. We live 5 minutes away and usually get takeout here. The chili dish, pad Thai pad se you, and fried rice are among our favorites. They also add items to an entree if you ask. We call and food is... More

That is about all I can say about the dining experience here. I think people give away far too many 5 star reviews which have driven this place up in the ranking. I rely on tripadvisor every week when I travel and this is the first real miss for me. I knew I should have gone back to the same... More

After eating here about 15 times since they opened, with something different almost every time, my wife and I have never had a bad meal. The appetizers are all great and the entrees are very good and served in portions that are large and filling. We are blessed in Springfield to have three or four good Thai restaurants, but this...
