Best Thai food I have enjoyed in years! I chose the Spicy Noodle with Chicken and Shrimp, and my husband had the yellow curry. Both were cooked to perfection!

The food was excellent, the portions were more than enough, service was good, and prices were good. I got green curry with chicken, and hubby got spicy eggplant with chicken. Both were very good, and we liked that we had a choice of white or...brown rice. Would definitely recommend The Basil!More

We enjoyed our lunch at The Basil which is on the Main Street of Carson City near the capital building. We ordered a vegetarian dish which was spicy basil eggplant with tofu. We were also served spring rolls and rice. The dining room was not...crowded and in April we were supposed to wear our masks as we walked through the restaurant but could remove them once we sat down.More

We are Thai food fanatics and The Basil is an 8 out of 10. Unexpected in Carson City. Nice environment --- open, spacious and well decorated without being overdone. Food could have benefitted from some spicing at cooking, although a condiment tray offered heat and...heat ++++. Mango sticky rice was good. Not exceptional ---- see Anongs in Rawlins, Wyoming --- but satisfying.More

Just happened to be in Carson City and saw this restaurant. Pulled over and had a great lunch there. I had the shrimp and chicken pad thai, and it came with soup and a small salad and was delicious. My daughter had pad thai with...tofu and she loved it. Worth a try if you're in the areaMore

The restaurant is very clean and staff friendly. Went in with mother in law for lunch. Told them about my gluten allergy but I think there was a bit of confusion regarding to my choice. The selection I was suggested of yellow curry with mango...was so delicious but I did say no tofu and it came with tofu. My gut never lies to me when there is gluten or considerable cross-contamination within 20-30 minutes after eating, my celiacs kicked in. Had it been safe food for me, i would have given 5 ⭐️s. Not a safe place for Celiacs but extremely flavorful and clean.More

One of the best Thai places I’ve eaten at in a while. The ambiance is inviting and the staff super friendly. Food is delicious and the portions are huge.

Read about the food on TripAdvisor and couldn’t agree more with the ratings! Food was some of the best we have had with respect to Asian cuisine. Reasonably priced. Pick-up available which we chose due to COVID-19 and not wanting to eat inside a restaurant....No outside seating unfortunately.More

We had the Panang curry and massuman pork special. The food was excellent and they had my favorite desert mango sticky rice!

I may have complained that the prices here were too high, but ya know, it really is worth paying more and getting the best Thai food I've ever had. I just go now and not think about how much it costs and really enjoy the...food. YES, the Basil is back open for DINE-IN table service! The staff are masked and gloved and everything is very safe. This last time we had the green curry, the roast Duck over rice, the silver noodles stir fry and the great masaman curry not on the menu but served. The dishes were $14 - $18 each. OMG, that duck was amazing, not one bone to be found either! The curries were divine with subtle flavors so expertly balanced. Do give the Basil a try, it really is the best Thai food you'll ever have.More

Yes we do. At the Basil, you will find it under Item #4 and we call it Coconut soup.
