Stopped here and got a couple rolls for take out. I can't comment on the service but take out didn't take long. Great fresh Sushi.

“Delicious food in cozy atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

Last night, my two kids, husband and I went on a walk looking for dinner options along St.Pete's beach that offered something different from the burgers & fries joints that seem to prevail along the area and we were thrilled to find Basil Leaf! Yes, the restaurant's decor is a bit on the crowded end, but the food is fresh and flavorful, the atmosphere is welcoming and cozy, and the staff offers great service.

The menu is ample and offers both sushi as well as Thai dishes. Our family shared some delicious tuna rolls, a flavorful coconut thai soup, a succulent beef pho and a tasty side of shrimp dumplings. Suffice to say that dinner at Basil Leaf was one of the best parts of the day for we shared dishes, laughter and felt right at home. Our server was cordial, prompt and was able to accommodate vegetarian options for us.

If you are in the area and want fantastic sushi and/or thai food, good vegetarian options that are not a bowl of lettuce and reasonable prices, please give Basil Leaf a try, you won't regret it!

“Tasty Sushi & Thai Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

I got the sushi appetizer and thai hot drunken noodles with tofu. Both were very good. The wasabi was particularly powerful, which I appreciated. Very pleasant atmosphere, nice decor.

“Great FOOD!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Coming from NYC it says a lot when I say this was great Chinese/Thai. All the ingredients were fresh and it was not oily or heavy.
