Having arrived late one evening in Carson City, I was searching for a restaurant that would be open when I arrived, with time to eat the meal. This is one of the many restaurants that close at 9pm, so I was a little nervous arriving at 8:20pm. Thankfully, I was still accommodated by the staff who were very attentive. The... More

I was simply passing though. It happened to be lunch time. The Basil was right on the main drag, and I found a free parking space just steps away around the corner. I found the service exceptional. My waiter knew many of the locals already seated or finishing up their meals -- a good sign that this place has a... More

This is a high quality restaurant with mid-range pricing. The staff is very nice, it has good parking around the corner, and it is a fun place to eat with friends or for a business lunch.

We were staying in Tahoe and wanted to see the Nevada Capitol building and saw this restaurant reviewed on TA- so glad we stopped- the food was outstanding and the staff so sweet. We just took waiters advice on what to eat and it was all phenomenal!

The service and food here are amazing. I've never had anything here I don't like. I love the spicy basil noodles, pad Thai and yellow curry. The lunch deals are a great deal and they come with salad (the peanut dressing is awesome).

My husband and I have lived in Carson City for 14 years and have never visited the Basil, mainly because my husband is not a fan of curry. But because he loves me and it was date night, he indulged my cravings and took me. I'm so happy he did!! The Panang Curry with chicken was over the top scrumptious!!... More

We were traveling and chose The Basil as it was rated #1 in Carson City. Pristine and tastefully decorated. Service professional, warm and attentive. The food was top notch. The mango roll was light and refreshing. The honey duck, crisp on the outside and moist on the inside. String beans crisp with a little heat. We couldn't finish and enjoyed... More

This restaurant shows off authentic Thai decor with beautiful screens, pottery and photos. The service was great, the owners having the time to stop and chat. Our meals however...tasted bland to our palate. We are used to much more flavorful sauces than we experienced here. Also there was no "hotness" option either on the menu or asked by the server....
