Really enjoyed my recent visit to Thai Basil. I ordered the Yellow Curry. My dish was prepared nicely. Great favor and nice visually. I would definitely return to try other dishes.

With 10 Thai and Vietnamese options available in this little town, Thai Basil stands out for its downtown convenience, large seating area, fast service, and flavorful and fresh preparations. It's difficult to go wrong with the Thai Basil, curries, pad thai, and dishes incorporating chicken...More
