Wanted something different especially after returning from Thailand, last month. The veg spring rolls were rather tasteless with the sweet chili sauce a bit watery. I had the yellow curry but they accommodated choice of salmon, instead of the menu driven stock choices. Plenty of rice with aldenté veg. Would eat here again, although mine was a take away. $27...

We wanted to have 'something asian' between ALL the EXPENSIVE seafood dinners Rather than the 'common chinese cuisine' which is everywhere for takeout We decided on this Thai place Reasonable ambiance... Very reasonable prices... But best surprise of all... VERY VERY VERY good tasting thai cuisine Ordered... More

We've done take-out from here a number of times now and are very happy with their food. Everything we've ordered has been very good. They also can make many of their dishes Gluten Free which is critical as my wife has Celiac disease and many other Thai restaurants don't do a very good job of adapting. My only note is... More

We get take-out on a regular basis and we have never been disappointed! The fried shumai are wonderful as is the chicken satay - they slice it thinly, grill it and layer on a light curry sauce - terrific! Have had several of the chicken entrees and they have never disappointed - very flavorful! A definite go-to place for Thai... More

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.
