We have been here a dozen times and have always had wonderful service and excellent fresh hot food. The staff is always watching to see what you need and the menu has a big variety. Lunch specials include soup, egg roll with lunch choice.

The Thai was very good. There were several military personnel there. Military folk tend to go to places where the food is good but not too expensive. Thai Basil fits that description. The summer rolls were particular good. They have lunch sprcials.

Great find while passing through Springfield. Service was prompt and friendly. Food was excellent. We especially loved the pad see ew- the noodles (I think) were made from scratch- at least they tasted like it. I don't always like fried rice- rest of my family does- but I got a second helping of this fried rice. We also enjoyed the... More

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
