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

We ate at Thai Basil one evening during a recent stay in Manchester area. We were really looking forward to what we hoped would be a great Thai experience, but what we got fell short. The service, cold and unwelcoming, was so incredibly rushed our heads span. The appetizers (okay, but nothing special) arrived very quickly after ordering, and we... More

The Thai Basil has very good Thai food. My wife had Pad Thai with chicken and I had the Massaman curry, both were excellent. I did have to spice the curry up a bit as I like it hot, but they were happy to provide the correct spice to do so. If you like Thai food this place is worth... More

Had a wonderful dinner here recently with my husband, father and close family friend. Always a great choice. The tuna tartar is amazing as are their shrimp spring rolls and salmon in green curry sauce. I always leave anticipating my return.

Went here Labor Day weekend, so maybe I would've given it 5 stars, but it was busy and we did have to wait a while to get our orders in. Other than that, we all loved it! Even my fussy Aunt cleaned her plate (Drunken Noodles w/ Chicken). Will definitely try it again for dinner!
