This little Thai restaurant is in an old, needing attention, strip mall on Rte 28. Don't go by the looks of the place. Stopping in at lunch I ordered the pineapple fried rice with pork and it was very good. You can ask for spicy "heat" by specifying the number of stars. One star = low spice, 5 stars =... More

My husband and I came here, not having Thai Cuisine before.. The dining room was quite empty and quiet but it was AMAZING food! My Husband said it was the best meal he had eaten since on The Cape. We will be returning one last time before we head back to Western, MA.

The previous review I did of Basil Thai has resulted in a huge increase in the volume of patrons for this tiny place. Just went to eat again tonight. Saw two empty tables. Owner refused to seat us. Told us our party of four had to wait 20 minutes. This is absolutely unacceptable. Do take out or be prepared to... More

A small but quaint, unassuming establishment. Food is unbelievably awesome, service excellent. They will make your dish as Thai hot as you want! Gets crowded but well worth the wait - go early or later to avoid the wait.

After lots of touristy seafood we wanted to try something else for dinner. Our server was great and very courteous, dinner took a while but it was worth the wait! We will be visiting again on our next trip to the Cape.

Very good food, fresh & tasty. We tried 4 dishes, pad Thai great, crispy duck special on noodles excellent. The drunken chicken I found way to salty and wasn't crazy for the sauce. Appetizer Soup portions huge. Tried Tom kha coconut soup & was tasty. Only problem was service. We got there at 6:40 pm on a Tuesday and got... More

My mother was interested in trying Thai food for the first time and she saw this restaurant while out and about in Yarmouth. She looked it up on Yelp and saw all sorts of wonderful reviews, so we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed! I brought my 2 children, one of whom is quite picky, but... More

One of our orders was off-menu, certain vegetables with a spicy sauce. Another order was custom vegetarian. Every vegetable, everything on the salad, *everything* was super fresh and delicious. We ordered take out and it couldn't have been better. 5 stars.
