Service was fantastic, food was delicious. Have tried many Thai places and this is among the best. Will be back!

Here is a small establishment with strong grounds in Ahwatukee! Food is consistently good, friendly staff, quick service, l highly recommended! Over time I've had the green curry with shrimp, with tofu, both taste outstanding. My husband ordered a chicken red curry and loved the...coconut flavor as well.More

Maybe I have become a Thai food snob but, this was just okay. I wanted it to be fantastic because I live close by and drive past it 20 times a month, oh well. Thai is one of my all time favorite cultural foods, kind...of expect flavor to be at the forefront. Was the food good? Yes. Was it fresh? I think so. Was it worth a return trip? Nah, not for me.. Try it for yourself but I think there are plenty of other great Thai places in and around south Phoenix. Happy eating!More

I love Thai green curry with eggplant and have ordered at every Thai restaurant I visited (there have been a lot) and Thai Basil's dish is the best I have ever had. Thinking of it makes my mouth water. We both ordered the lunch special...and it was more than enough food and the price as very reasonable. The staff were very friendly and seem genuinely interested in our enjoyment.More

We order so frequently they know us by name. Lunch or dinner, you can't go wrong. Favorite is eggplant garlic with chicken.

Only did takeout, but place looked decent. Ordered the chicken panang - definitely not as spicy as some Thai places, but I added some red chile paste and it was ok. Place isn't my favorite, but works when that craving hits.

We have been coming to this location for the last 6 months. My daughter who is very picky, LOVES it here. The spices are very flavourful, the portions are exactly the right size and the lunch special is fantastic. The lunch special, includes a broth...that is delicious. The entree comes with an spring roll too. I hope you enjoy this local restaurant like our family does.More

Restaurant is near our home and we've driven by hundreds of times. Decided to try it recently. We wanted to like it. Should have kept driving. Food was mediocre at best. Spring rolls were packed with shredded lettuce, some carrot, a few sprouts and a...skimpy bit of shrimp. Noodle dish with pork was all noodles and a nondescript brown gravy with a few little pieces of pork. Special seafood dish was a few pieces of fish and a bit of shell fish wrapped in tin foil. Sauce was OK. Service was just fair. We will not return.More

I ordered the Tom Yum noodle soup with shrimp. It was not very good. Way below my expectation. And what made it worse was that it costed $14.

We used to live around the corner and frequented this place, mostly for the inexpensive lunch special. It's always packed, chiefly with many non-native employees of Intel, which is right across the street, literally. We had left our dog at the nearby vet for some...tests and had 45 minutes to spare so we went for a quick lunch. The cleanliness has plunged. Both of the cooks in the kitchen that we could see through the serving window had no hairnets on and every horizontal surface was covered with a thick layer of dust and/or cobwebs including the wooden shingles on roof of the faux "hut" that covers the cashier/kitchen area, all of the hanging pendant lights and even the top of the sandwich board at the front door. There were boxes piled up against the wall opposite the bathroom entrances. It has acquired the look and feel of a third-world country. It's a shame; the food is still good and hot and cheap but we won't be back having to wonder what might have fallen into it.More

We ordered take-out for our family of six, and the food was ready in 20 minutes. The pineapple rice was tasty. The spicy fried rice was good.
