Had a great lunch experience here while on a work trip. Quick service and great food. We opted to sit at the bar and our drink glasses never got below half full. The food was so good and there were multiple gluten-free options so I came back for dinner before flying out.

My sister and I visited this restaurant on our first night in the city. We were seated right away and all the servers were attentive and very friendly. I have given the food an average rating, everything else was great and I have no complaints.

We really enjoyed our dinner in Uptown Charlotte at the Basil Thai Restaurant. The food is priced a little higher than most Thai restaurants but everything tastes very fresh. We've been both times we visited and everything was very tasty and the service was good. It also has a modern decor that was appealing.

Visited with 2 business colleagues and came here twice. Good satay, and brilliant coconut soup. Mains were great, ginger chicken and pad thai, chicken noodles. Plenty of spice too and tasted really fresh. Japanese beer good too. The fried green tea ice cream is fantastic. Very nice ambience and friendly staff. I love thai food so will definitely come back... More

My wife and I went here this afternoon for a late lunch. There is no lunch menu, so you pay full boat even if it's one o'clock in the afternoon. Okay, we figured, it's a nice atmosphere, kinda chic, good uptown location. We'll give it a shot. I order the namesake plate, i.e. thai basil. For meat I had chicken.... More

Nice place only a few blocks from the office and alongside the Dandelion Gardens place, so easy to find. Once you get inside it is actually a lot more roomy than it looks from the outside. The food is excellent in taste and presentation and if you like a bit of variety and spice suggest this go on your list... More

I went to other Thai restaurant in the Uptown area and it was not as good as this one. Had the Tom Yum and Veggie Fried Rice, along with the Spring Rolls . . . very good food and service. Note that they do not validate parking if you park in the garage because they have Valet parking.

Chai the owner has really done it with this place! Ambiance, staff and amazing food! I love the Red Curry Duck-a must have! Pad Thai has chicken and shrimp. Request medium spice!
