Really good food, fast service

I've always come to Thai Basil for lunch and have never been disappointed. I think I've tried half the things off the lunch menu. You are served soup right away and your food comes out shortly after with a pork or veggie egg roll. The portion sizes are perfect and the taste is delicious. Perfect... read more

I've eaten at Thai Basil numerous times - often for lunch and a few times for dinner. The food is great. The service is great. The prices are very reasonable. The staff are all very friendly and make excellent recommendations if you are unsure about what you want. This place is quick, easy, and no hassle.

The food here is terribly un-authentic and oddly slimy. The service is rushed, and rude. I ordered a Thai iced tea, and the milk was bad in the iced tea. When I told the waitress, they would not take the iced tea off my check. I had taken 2 sips, and they insisted that I pay for the whole thing.... More

Most of the time, I just call in the order and they have it ready in about half the time promised. I also visited on an eat in occasion and the service was just as good. Lots of food for the price and always on time. I'm there at least once a week. Can't get enough of the place. The... More

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

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
