This is a great spot for a delicious Thai meal. Lots of choices for main dishes and all of them are always good. They have good wines by the glass. Sadly, the appetizers were a little tasteless and uninspired. The service is good, the location is great, and you might be able to get a table outside if desired.

Not much to say apart from what’s in the title. We ordered two interesting sounding martinis off the special board and found them both to be wonderful, with just the right touch of "exotic". Could have easily sucked down many more. We munched on chicken satay and fresh spring rolls, and found both to be better than average. Our bartender... More

I've been visiting family in Manchester for the past 10+ years, and for so long, there were very few good restaurants in town. Thai Basil is SUCH a welcome addition. The food was awesome, reasonable prices, excellent cocktail menu (try the Lychee martini!) and nice service.

Fresh and tasty, I would recommend Thai Basil for dinner. Appetizer was a disappointment - spring rolls, very small and over priced. Pass on this. Mains were a big hit, massaman curry with shrimp was sweet and flavourful with lots of shrimp, great value. Yellow curry with chicken (pictured) also very flavourful, good spiciness and generous curry sauce in both.... More

We stopped at Manchester on our way to New Hampshire and was pleasantly surprised to find the best Pad Thai in Vermont! A little pricer than normal at $15 for Pad Thai chicken but it was worth it. Service was great as well! Will come back here if I find myself in Manchester again!

We had one of the best Thai meals we've ever had. Service was excellent, even on a busy Summer Saturday night. Everything was very fresh and so well prepared. We had Pad See-U with chicken (So delicious and the noodles were perfect, not glue-y or mushy like we've had at other restaurants), Yellow Curry Noodle with tofu (Excellent, more of... More

Best food in town!! Can't wait until the fall when they start their nightly specials. !!! A must try for everybody. A bottle of nigiri saki goes well with all meals.

Great service and food! I love the steamed potstickers and the cashew nut beef with brown rice. You can order your food with lots of spice or just a little!
