I visited Sweet Basil for the first time, after reading their menu on-line. My son and a friend, a young lady from Thailand, were my guests. I wanted to make the evening special, so when I made reservations, I requested a somewhat larger table, so...More

Good neighborhood Thai restaurant. Nice people. We do take-out here as it is close to our house. So, I cannot comment on wait staff.

We could not eat in because of a baby and took out. Excellent food, great service, well within promised time, all at a very reasonable price. Popias, green curry with tofu, shrimp noodles were all very tasty, not too spicy and of good quantity.

Decent food but not strong flavoring. Nothing like authentic Thai cooking.... you do not pick up any fish sauce or much heat in dishes that should have those flavors.
