These guys don't accommodate larger groups and to reserve a table here you have to place a deposit. And if you don't have a reservation, they will make every effort to offend you and they don't bother if you leave. This is the second instance it happened to our group. I didn't wanted to visit this place again because of... More

While in town for a Pinball Tourny, our group of 5 stopped by for an early dinner. Unfortunately, the poor Bartender was also our server. We got very little attention since his bar area was being seated rapidly & patrons were also trickling in to the bar. Once the food started coming out, more servers appeared. That was good. The...

Had a nice glass of wine at the bar after I ordered the Pad Thai with all shrimp to go. Before I left, I checked my order and it had chicken and shrimp. When brought to the attention of the bartender/server, he assured me that it would take just a few minutes to get it right. He gave me another... More

Had the shrimp fried rice and hubby had the chicken and noodles. Very flavorful though my favorite has cilantro in it. Would have liked the seafood dish but at 23, over our budget for a Tuesday night.Friendly staff.

Basil Thai is one of the finer Thai restaurants in the heart of uptown Charlotte. A great place for a relaxing weekend date. Food is delicious and filling. A little on the expensive side, but worth it. Wait times are reasonable and deco is beautiful. All in all, you will not be disappointed.

Very fresh authentic Thai. Refreshing! The atmosphere was comfortable and casual yet elegant. Staff was very attentive with immediate refills on drinks and someone quickly removed finished dishes. Will definitely be back. Great place to bring friends and clients

The restaurant was hard to find at first when walking around the area. It also closes in between lunch and dinner. There isn't much around it other than a cemetery across the street. The place is a high end restaurant that feels more like an American Restaurant than Thai. the food is authentic at least. It's just very expensive because... More

The place is nice and elegant, and the food is nice. I would recommend, also is well located in the downtown (or uptown as is called in Charlotte)
