This restaurant has found a niche in Cedar City because there are no other Thai places. If they had competition, I think they wouldn't do so well. Their food is really delicious, but the portions are small and prices don't reflect the size of the portions. The old host dude is ornery and does not have very friendly service.

I don't know why I keep going back here. It's always the same. We come down for the Shakespeare Festival every year. I read there was new management and thought maybe this restaurant would be better now. It was not. The same indifferent and grouchy waiters. Only three vegetarian options on the entire menu. Everything has fish sauce in it!!... More

This was just what we wanted after a day of hiking!! The food was full of flavor and spicy, but not to spicy!! It really hit the spot. We got our food right after we ordered and it was delicious!!

We were taken to this cafe by local friends who swore by the quality of the food, and they were absolutely correct! This is a small restaurant in the shopping area at the south end of town. We tried both the fried rice and the noodle dishes, and they are were greatl. Spice level can be designated from 1 to... More

Sweet Basil is a great find in Cedar City. I had seen the Resturant write-up and wanted to try it. Easy to find with lost of shopping near by. We enjoyed the luncheon menu, selecting the Garlic Sauce and Cashew Nuts dishes. Both were delicious, quickly served, and a nicely presented.

This is an excellent little restaurant. Don't let the location in a strip mall near Walmart fool you. The dining room is exceptionally clean and inviting. We were seated and served promptly. The yellow curry was outstanding. Just the right amount of spice and sweetness. Remember to save room for the mango sticky rice for dessert. It is so good!... More

The restaurant is a nice enough place in a shopping center. Easy to find. The food was good. We ordered Pad Thai Shrimp and Beef Panang. The Pad Thai was good, just needed a little more flavor. We order Pad Thai at Thai restaurants everywhere we go so we are spoiled. The Beef Panang was ok, just needed to be... More

The place was packed but we got a table right away. Service was great (even though it looked like there was only one guy bringing out food and taking orders). Spring rolls were awesome and they ask how spicy you'd like your food on a scale of 1-10 so that was nice. I ordered the drunken noodles which were pretty... More

We should have left when we first entered and were basically ignored by the receptionist who eventually pointed at a table. Why we didn't leave when an almost surly waiter took our order is our own stupidity. Anyway, the seafood pad thai was drab and almost tasteless, the rice was bland (even for rice!) and the steak salad was so... More

This place serves up a better experience than its strip mall location would suggest. The generous portions arrived quickly and offered great flavor. On the downside, the filthy windows were a concern, as was the lack of cashews in the Cashew Chicken. Most importantly, the large menu shrinks to just a few items if you wish to avoid the fish...
