Ordered from here this past week. I had combo fried rice, coconut shrimp, and a spring roll. The coconut shrimp quite good, the spring roll and peanut sauce bland and nearly shrimpless, and the combo fried rice less than memorable, in fact really bland. Sure take out food faced some, but there was no great flavor at the outset. Not... More

I had takeout, so the food suffered, but I'd describe it as less than mediocre. It seemed pretty fresh but the dishes were made with the bare minimum of ingredients. Thai spring rolls were stuffed with 80% noodles with a few greens and a shrimp or two. Almost no seasoning. A noodle dish with chicken egg and broccoli was stuck... More

After reading what they put in their noodle bowls, we opted for sesame chicken and kung pao chicken. Nothing to write home about. Friendly attentive waitress. Good eggroll, sesame chicken was a bit bland.

I rarely go to a Thai restaurant unless I am in Thailand...but every so often my wife gets a craving for Thai food. This is our restaurant of choice when she wants Thai. Service has always been very good and the food is very good as well.

We have gone to this location at Park Meadows a few times, both for dinner and lunch. I believe they have the best Hot & Sour soup in the city. It is reach and full of tofu, mushroom, and other vegetables. One can easily make a full meal out of it. For both lunch and dinner the food is served... More

Do not give these people your business!!! When the manager and owner messed up an order and I called to inform them of this, he yelled at me and told me "I don't care!" And I asked, so you don't care about customer service? To which he replied again, "No, I don't care." He refused to correct the order, he... More

Just went to Thai Basil again last week and it continues to be a great restaurant. Had the spicy mango shrimp and it was fantastic. This is their original location and I think has always been the best. We highly recommend it to anyone wanting great Thai food in Denver...

I had not been here in probably 7 years, but wanted to see if it was as good as I remembered it being, when I lived in the neighborhood. This place used to be packed on a Saturday night, which is why I made reservations. Turns out they weren't necessary. For a long while, our party was the only one... More

Our server at was one of the worst I've ever had. He was rude and abrasive, we were the only table he had yet he was slow with every aspect of waiting. Meanwhile one other server had the other 5 or 6 tables occupied. He seemed to be fast and polite. I'm not sure why it was this way, but... More

We stayed in downtown Denver 7/30/14 and 7/31/14. We got into town around 9pm so we were limited as to what could be delivered to our hotel. We had a craving for Asian food, and the front desk at the TownePlace Suites gave us a list with a series of restaurants that delivered after hours. Thai Basil was on the... More
