Thoroughly enjoyed a Sunday early evening dinner. Delicious cocktails (during Happy Hour), and delicious food with attentive service. Ample portions, left us satisfied. But not so much that, as visitors, we would feel guilty not taking a doggie bag.

Fresh ingredients. Our table was near the kitchen and it was neat seeing them put them meals together. Awesome taste. The only complaint is that they don't have Sriracha! :)

I had a very nice dining experience with family at Basil Restaurant, this one actually located in the Mt. Pleasant area of Charleston near Isle of Palms connector. The cocktails were nicely crafted, the food authentic and exceptional. Time and money well spent!

A must go to for us whenever we visit Charleston. Nice size restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating, Bar area and counter area overlooking part of grill/kitchen. To me Asian restaurants are very quiet. This has a higher energy and contemporary feel that really enhances...More

My husband and I love Pad Thai and this is the best we have ever had! Some places just use too much fish sauce which makes it yuk! We also had the Volcano Shrimp dish which was very delicious and just the right amount of...More

It depends on the age of the child. While we had none with us and I didn't look for high chairs or booster seats, I would say they would enjoy the hustle and bustle. The difficulty would be bringing an infant because the... More
