“good food, big portions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

We stayed at the Holiday Inn and this restaurant was right inside so it was very convenient. I got the Pad Thai which was some of the best I've had. My husband got a curry and liked that as well. Though the menu is limited compared to other Thai places we've been, it was definately a place we would have again if traveling to Biloxi. The waitress was friendly and the view of the beach was beautiful. I would definately go again!

“Authentic as it gets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012 via mobile

Except for Thailand, this is the best thai I've had in the States. All authentic and truly original. Thai beef salad was great, papaya salad was spicy and delicious, and the best soup ever. I regret waiting almost a year before trying it.

“Best Thai food on the Coast!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012 via mobile

Once you get past the fact this authentic Thai restaurant is inside a hotel, you'll find outstanding Thai dishes to please your cravings. The food is excellent and they only serve Thai food during dinner service! My only wish is that they would start serving lunch too!

“Excellent, Spicy Thai food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

I've eaten in many Thai restaurants all over the USA, and Thailand too, and this restaurant in Holdiday Inn Express was just excellent. We ordered papaya salad, pad thai to start, and said we want it mild to regular spicy. the salad was so good i decided to order the chicken in yellow curry sauce, which was superb (regular thai hot). in many thai restaurants, the thai curry sauces tend to be too creamy, even sweetish to reduce the heat factor, but here, the Thai lady chef did it just right. just a touch of coconut milk and right amount of sauce consistency, not too runny, not too thick, and the spice heat was just prefect for my taste. we raved so much about the food that our wait-person brought the thai lady chef, whom we thanked profusely, and she simply said she made the food 'home style.'
so when in biloxi, if you're hankering for some real good thai or spicy food, check out the Thai Basil.

“This place was great. Finally local authentic Thai.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

Limited menu with all the staples. The pad thai was excellent, the fried rice, Thai style was excellent (loved the fresh bamboo shoots), the spring rolls were not greasy, the soup was tasty. We will return. Only thing is that is in a holiday inn breakfast type location. Clean, but odd environment.
