“Best Thai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

First time at Thai Basil. Small place, but large in flavors. We had the papaya salad, which had very fresh tomatoes, cucumbers and green beens along with the papaya. All items can be ordered 1-10 on how hot (spicy) you want it. Also had the Pad See Ew and Pad Ke Maw. Both were the best I ever had at a Thai rest restaurant. Also good prices and we had food to take home.
We will return for this great restaurant.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013 via mobile

Fantastic authentic Thai food. Their house dressing is spicy, salty, and sweet all in one, very gooooooood! The food can be pretty spicy so make sure to ask for your meal less spicy than you would normally get it. ( they let you pick your level of heat 1-10) my husband asked for 5 range of heat and he said it was excellent but really spicy.

“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.)
