The portions are large and the flavor excellent. The Chicken Pad Thai was enough for two. I ordered the Chicken Stir Fry in garlic sauce, everything fresh, crisp and delicious. The server was very nice and accommodating. Will definitely go back.

I ordered the tum yum and the Thai green curry. The tum yum was great. Perfectly spicy. The green curry was bland and boring. Second time I’ve ordered curry here and it’s been bland. I recommend the curry house in Asheville instead.

When we ate at Thai Basil we didn’t look for bubble tea on the menu because we spent the previous two hours nearby at Dobra Tea, where I had bubble tea. Dobra’s version of bubble tea was less sweet than I had tasted... More

They've got tons of gluten-free options; staple grain is rice, and many of the noodles are rice noodles instead of wheat. I'd always make sure to ask first... but this spot is perfect for GF dining.
