The staff is very pleasant and they try very hard to accommodate. If you are gluten free they will help with menu selections. If you call ahead 24 hours they can be absolutely certain to use tamari instead of soy-sauce. The dining is casual/nice and the atmosphere is relaxed. Oh, and the food is yummy.

Had dinner on a Tuesday night while in town for business. Good was very good, if a little too sweet (had spicy basil with shrimp). Service is quick and efficient. Good for a quick meal.

The food and service at the Thai Basil is excellent. I've eaten here several times and the service and food are consistently excellent. It also helps that the staff is friendly and helpful with food selections.

This is a must do at least once a month for me. Great food at reasonable prices. Always meet my cousin here who drives down from Lake Tahoe to enjoy their cuisine.

We were n the mood for something a little different from the usual faire last night, and decided to try The Basil. It was tricky getting there due to construction downtown, but boy, was it worth it! Beautiful fabrics trim the walls, and interesting Asian screens and artifacts decorate the interior. There is an extensive menu. I had the Penang... More

We arrived for lunch just after a busy rush. They seated us promptly and took our order. The soup was delivered even before we ordered. Great service, good wine, good food. We had some lunch specials. All 4 of us loved our dishes, with plenty to eat with mints at the end.

Very very tasty! That's the best way to descibe this restaurant. I have eaten in several Thai restaurants and they were all good but this one stood out as much more authentic. The staff is all Thai. Service is very good. It was crowded which is a good thing and the noise level was tolerable. The menu is very presentation... More
