A non assuming restaurant located just off the interstate in a small strip mall. Wasn't sure what to expect but wanted something simple and tasty. Ordered the noodle luch special and was immediately provided with a small vegetable soup. Wow, what a wonderful taste! Smooth, not too salty, and pure vegetable taste. A very good soup that really surpassed anything... More

They kick you out precisely at closing time and will not let you finish your meal. The place is obviously take-out nearly 100% - the tables are just there for show. The menu pictures are extremely generic, and show this is "American Thai food". As for the food itself - well, we didn't get served - we ordered, but got... More

Nothing very interesting here, nor especially tasty. Service was okay--reasonably prompt and friendly. You could skip it, though.

I will agree with the vast majority of the reviewers for this restaurant. Fast service, clean atmosphere, tasty food, and reasonable prices are what the reviewers say about this restaurant, and it is true. The decorated atmosphere of this restaurant is very colorful too. I ordered the spicy glass noodle entrée and it was very good. I needed to add... More

This place was clean and had very fast service. That's because when I ordered a 2 star panang curry I was informed the sauce was pre-made to a 3 star. Pre-made??? The sauce that came with the summer rolls was a "peanut" sauce, which actually was just teriyaki sauce with a few chopped peanuts on top. Our entrees were very... More

I've eaten here a couple times. The food is always good and the service is prompt. I usually get a lunch special and the one from today was delicious: Spicy Thai Basil. They always start off with a warm vegetable broth soup. On cold days it's a nice way to warm up.

This was a choice from the TripAdvisor "Near Me Now" feature and did not disappoint. We were in Springfield for an event and looked for a place to stop before heading home. As Thai food fans, we quickly chose this spot. Summer Rolls, Thai Beef Salad, Singapore Noodles and Green Curry with Shrimp were all promptly served, hot,,fresh and flavorful.... More

We enjoy going to Thai Basil. Their Summer Rolls with peanut sauce are delicious. We had the Bume Noodle Soup, dry; those magical Summer Rolls; Drunken Noodle; Pad Woosen and Thai Ice Tea. What a treat! Fast service and delicious food!

My husband and I were out for a drive to Springfield and wanted to try something new for dinner. Found this restaurant while driving around the area. Service was quick, the place was clean. The food was good but rather bland. We had to add soy sauce and sirachi to the dish. Highly recommend the sampler appetizers.
