Title says it all! I am a regular here so I can tell you that service can swing (they occasionally have days where they are way understaffed, but are always friendly and helpful), also try to avoid takeout. We've ordered a few times and the taste/portioning seems off. Otherwise, 5/5!

visiting friends in Toronto area who are from Thailand. They took us here and it was our first experience with Thai food. It was delicious. Very much enjoyed the variety of flavors and spices. My husband has a sensitive stomach and they adjusted the spices so that they were not to hot for him-he had no problem, in fact ordered... More

Do not judge the book by its cover. We looked at the menu posted on the window, thinking the prices are okay. We walked in and saw the decor, and thought, "uh oh"... Decor is nice, but we wanted to find authentic Thai food, not westernized fancy upscale Thai. We ordered a curry and a Pad Thai. Curry is good,... More

We ordered for a family get together last night but two of us (I'm one of the two) are gluten intolerant. Knowing that Thai restaurants can usually accommodate gluten free requests better than Chinese ones for example, my family member who ordered mentioned that we had a few gluten intolerant eaters and if there was a way to make a...

We've been here before and looked forward to another pleasant meal. The noodle bowls are spicy and nippy, but eh taste does not last very long....too bad. Our meals were delicious and served expeditiously by friendly servers.

Called the restaurant to explain the situation and they replaced the food and offered to deliver the food. Driver comes with the replacement food and at my doorstep, asks me to show him the food with the... More

We were two friends, hadn't met in months, so catching up was on the agenda. They don't take reservation on weekend between 7 - 8:30pm... go figure! Took forever to place order for drinks, but for the food they wanted to get the order asap. We ordered a starter, but it came after one of the main dishes, the servers... More

We were very enthusiastic to try this restaurant, hoping for a good Thai restaurant north of Toronto. It was a disappointing experience. The positive side is that the amendments would not be difficult to do. Simply: Avoid bad meat (old, defrosted chicken), and increase the portions that will not convey greed and cheap attitude. I read the same critic from... More

Whenever my folks from Ottawa visit, this is one of the go-to spots. The dishes at Thai Basil rarely disappoints. Unfortunately, they ran out of softshell crabs as that is one of our favourite dishes. The pleasant surprise of the visit was their Panang Curry with chicken. It was super-flavourful and had a nice big of kick to it. Reservations... More
