Full disclosure: I have never been to Thailand so my frame of reference is US restaurants only. Basil sets a bar so high that any other Thai places I have tried before or after Basil do not compare. The food is fresh and consistently delish. They are innovative with their ever-changing specials. This is now a staple restaurant on the... More

I have been coming to this restaurant since it opens and I've never been disappointed with the food. It's not your typical Thai food, rather their dishes are a mixture of traditional Thai food with gourmet cuisine. My only negative is that the prices seemed to have doubled in recent years.

We had a girls weekend in San luisobispo. Hotel suggested this restaurant which didn't entirely reassure me. Then we walked in and had the best tom khan soup ever. It was delicious! All dish s were good. We ended up going the next night too as it was so good. Service was good and friendly.

Good Thai Food. Great location to eat before a movie. If you are a Thai food purist this might not be your place, but if you are looking for some good Pad Thai or Yellow Curry you won't be disappointed.

Basil has a traditional menu but surprises you with specials that please the palette. They accommodate special requests and have a nice wine list from which to select. Conveniently located next to the Downtown Park in Paso Robles, they are a cool escape in the summer, and a bright holiday space in the winter. Always a popular place for locals... More

Service was amazing. This restaurant would have gotten an excellent review if everything that I ordered did not taste so sweet. I ordered the fresh rolls, which were AMAZING, the papaya salad, larb gai, a side of steamed rice, and the crying tiger. Maybe Thai food is really sweet or whomever was cooking likes everything sweet, but it just did... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants to choose from. They are very accommodating to families with children. Their food is all made to order. Great servers and delicious food. Good beer and wine list.

The hardest thing in the world is going to a restaurant that you like and to have food allergies. I go to Basil all the time. I am very grateful for their understanding. Particularly to my soy, corn and peanut allergy. They always make my food seperatly and ensure that I never get sick. The food is delicious on top... More

I ate here with friends several years ago, and went again 2 days ago with a friend. I am not familiar with Thai food, so would not know if the flavors were authentic or not. The menu items were named their correct names, so they did not give me any idea what was in the dish. All the dishes looked... More

Fantastic! I've been ruined for other Thai restaurants. We ordered the Penang Curry with pork and Pad Thai to go and it was ready when we got there and still hot when we got to our rental. Can't wait to go back!
