Love the Pad Thai and the coconut chicken soup. The steamed dumplings are also good, the dipping sauce is especially delicious. I have had many meals here over several years an never a bad one.

Thai Sweet Basil is always reliable, and doesn't disappoint. We go here pretty regularly. Their's is my standard of excellence for Pad Thai, my favorite dish. It is always one of the two entrees we order. Good food, fair prices, pleasant atmosphere, & mostly good (though sometimes slow) service. The service isn't bad, but you do sometimes have to flag...

We have been going to Thai Sweet Basil for 15+ years. I have tried numerous apps and entrees but my favorites are Crispy Pad Thai and Macadamia Beef with whole wheat noodles. In my opinion the Chinese food in the local area has gone down hill in recent years and I much prefer Thai food for it's freshness and unique... More

4 of us went for supper. The pad Thai was good. The green curry was a bit bland and lacked depth of flavour. It could also have done with a little more heat. I suspect the starter spring rolls etc are bought in...as frozen rather than hand made. With respect, the interior is alsoa bit tacky. It could be more... More

I think this restaurant has the best pad Thai I have ever had. Everything is always fresh. The chicken satay is excellent, fresh spring rolls and pineapple fried rice are good too. But if your looking to bring your new date on a ambiance romantic date this is not the place. Very basic setting.

Place is decorated nicely. The service is a hit or miss mostly uninviting. Usually we are greeted abruptly by wait staff and often feel hurried along. Although food is good.

Thai Basil's Pad Thai is the best around hands down. Chicken Satay is top nop, try the Pineapple Fried Rice it's great. Not overly on pricey. The restaurant itself ambiance is nothing to talk about, just ok, not because of the service just because there's not a lot to it. We do take out a lot, no deliver that's a... More

Thai Sweet Basil serves up good, fresh Thai Food. They use very fresh vegetables and have brown rice as an option. We use it more for take out, the dining room doesn't have a great atmosphere, though the food makes up for it. Very nice staff too.

We would look forward to eating at Sweet Basil's at least once a month. The kids and adults in our family loved the Pad Thai and Chicken Yellow Currie. Lately the quality has slipped and we now eat at Sweet Basil only occasionally.

I'm still wondering when my dining experience at Thai Sweet Basil will improve. I keep trying and keep getting more and more disappointed each time. I've decided that if I want authentic Thai to go to "Lot's of Eats in North Andover" instead. Sorry to say, but you all should just give up. You can tell the ownership hearts are... More
