“Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

I travel for business and eat Thai food throughout my travels. This was the best! Yes the place is loud but who cares, the food is great. I had the duck, j was only sad because there was so much left and I couldn't take it with me!! The staff were very nice too! I will be back soon & often!!

“A bit over priced, nice to eat outside.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

enjoyed the experience because I was with a good friend and we got to sit outside. The food was OK. Needed some salt or soy sauce but there was none on the table. My friend liked her pad Thai. I don't think I would go back to this place.

“Nice Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We enjoyed a delicious lunch including Chicken Coconut Soup, Thai Shrimp salad, and a cashew Chicken dish. Cute little place. A nice light meal.

“Very Loud”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We were so disappointed in Basil. We love Thai food, and this was just okay. The pad thai wasn't very good, the larb was better. The atmosphere is cool and hip, but very loud. If you are wanting a hip, loud place, you will like Basil. If you want authentic thai food and conversation choose another restaurant.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Our party of six started out our meal with the most amazing Tom soup. Light and refreshing! We shared a duck salad (roll) and three delicious entrees. Service was great, ambiance very nice. The green tea ice cream is to die for! A nice change after eating so much heavy southern food.
