Most outstanding Thai restaurant. Usually crowded and a bit noisy, but very nice servers and good food.

What a great find! We stopped in this restaurant on our walk to our hotel from the children's museum. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The service was fast and the food was delicious!

We love Thai food and we have tried it in many cities during our travels for work and fun. Basil is certainly one of our favorites and we always make a point to stop in when we are in Charleston! Don't miss this change to eat here it is worth the wait

Pretty standard Thai restaurant. We had Pad Thai and Massaman curry. Both dishes were very good and the portions were pretty big. Prices were a little high, but you're paying for the neighborhood

I loved this Thai restaurant! The staff was quick to accommodate 11 people on a Friday night with no reservations. The sake choices were fun and decently priced.

Every dish was sweet, like Panda Express. Vegetables were overcooked. If you want savory Thai food I wouldn't recommend this place. My daughter thought her soft drink had an alcohol taste to it. Wouldn't recommend for kids either.

This restaurant was a rare find. It was suggested by a Charlestonian friend who is a foodie, and it did not disappoint. The food at basis was fresh and very accurately spiced based on your heat preference. Will return to this fabulous place that is great for groups of friends as well as date nights and families.
