I've been to some restaurants where they want you in and out fast, but this place set the world record. Our server kept coming to the table, trying to remove things. Our entrees were literally cooked and waiting around the corner from our table while the waitstaff watched us take the last bites of our appetizers. The second we finished,... More

My wife and I stopped for lunch. It was warm out so we sat in the dining room. Servers were a little hard to understand but we managed to order the Drunken Noodles and Teriyaki stir fry for entrees and spring rolls for an app. The rolls were fresh and the dipping sauce was delicious. The entrees followed at just... More

We was our waitress twice. Once when she took our order and once when she brought the check. Food was below average. Will not be back.

A good restaurant for reasonably priced lunches. Usual Thai affair with fresh ingredients. Helpful and kind staff. A bit pricey for dinners but still manageable in the land of expensive restaurants. They even tailor the dishes to your liking. However they put too much sugar in some dishes such as the classic Pad Thai. It's like desert.

First, the food is terrific. It is authentic, not complicated and the sauces are sublime. We got carry-out because our two dogs wanted us to be in the hotel with them. Next time, we will eat in. The ambience is romantic, quaint and classic. The bar and bar tender are wonderful. White table cloths. Old New England house. Love it.

Without a doubt the best Thai food I've found on the East coast. The marinated pork appetizer was well-seasoned and moist, the larb salad was delicious, its flavors well-balanced. The chicken cashew stir fry was excellent; the vegetables were all cooked to their own point and retained their own flavors, the sauce didn't overwhelm, but complemented. The service was attentive...

Our dinner at Thai Basil had more high points than low points. The good: Delicious gluten-free Teriyaki chicken, good Pad Thai (though overly sweet) and very responsive service. The bad: Uncomfortable chairs and overly loud ambiance (we shouldn't have chosen to sit in the same room as the bar). Still a very good choice for Thai in Manchester.

Had a great weekday dinner here. The food was fresh, tasty, and light, and the service was timely, even though it was busy. Waitresses and waiters extremely helpful and friendly. Highly recommend this restaurant! Even the kids loved it!
