“Terrific Thai food in Visalia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

We were on our way to Sequoia National Park and stopped overnight in Visalia. For out of towners, just finding this little restaurant is an adventure -- but the food is worth it. Know it is across from Blockbuster near the corner of a large shopping mall.
We shared standards like pad thai, green curry, etc.; all were excellent. The service was helpful and attentive.
We liked Thai Basil so much that we planned to have lunch here on our way out of Sequoia five days later. Unfortunately, it was closed on Saturday for lunch (though apparently open for dinner.)

“Small n cozy with excellent food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

Thai Basil has excellent food and service. A hidden little secret in our Visalia! The establishment is small and I almost wish it was bigger, but I wonder if that would take away the magic of what Thai Basil is all about. Come ready to wait a while for your food, but be ready to love and enjoy any dish in their menu!!

“Great Thai Restaurant in Visalia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

Terrific place. Great food; excellent service. Why is it that so many good Thai restaurants are in strip malls and difficult to find?
