My husband and I love Thai food. This is some of the best we've eaten. The service was excellent, and the atmosphere was nicer than the usual quick Thai food restaurant.

I really enjoyed the food here -- veggie rolls were fantastic, so hot and crisp. Pork was good too. Good service, fast.

Drove down with family to this place and worth it! The Pad thai, red snapper (see pic) and steamed pot stickers were amazing. Cute setup in an older refurbished home in downtown Manchester. Fun location, albeit a bit noisy. Can't wait to go back!

Stopped by the Thai Basil for lunch on a beautiful fall day. The luncheon menu was one page front and back with simple descriptions of the fare being offered. It couldn't have been more deceptive. For the first course we had generous bowls of coconut cream soup, seasoned with lemongrass and other delicate spices, and accompanied with chicken, mushrooms, and... More

Good Thai food in a nice setting in Manchester. Great service and reasonable prices. If you really like Thai food and Thai spice, let the server know!

This is a simple informal place with a full bar. We went early and were able to just walk in. The Thai food was very good particularly the duck specialty. Pad thai and soup were well spiced. Large servings in each case.

We ordered veggie rolls followed by crispy duck and a salmon green curry and loved it! Portions were huge. Check it out when you're in the Manchester area!

We had lunch on a Saturday, and were seated outside. We felt that it took a server (who brought water) an overly long time to come to our table. Ditto for the server who took our order. The food was excellent, by the way! If you like Thai food, and you're not too picky about attentive, speedy service, this place... More

When a friend and I asked the front desk personnel at our hotel for a recommendation for a restaurant where the menu included vegetarian options, Thai Basil was the first one mentioned - and we were very glad we followed up on the suggestion. The versatile menu is fairly extensive, but the food was very fresh and beautifully prepared. I... More
