I was so excited to go back to Thai Basil as we have been for the last two years on our annual trip to Toronto. I'm not sure what happened, if the chef was tired (we got there at 9 and they close at 10 on Sundays) but we were a bit disappointed. The tom kha kai soup was flavourful as well as the satai, however the lettuce wraps were only ok. For entrees two people ordered green curry one ordered red and three ordered various pad thai (chicken and shrimp, only chicken and only shrimp). Only my friend with the chicken was raving that it was fantastic. The green curry was a bit salty for my taste and they have a new policy: if you want rice with your curry you have to pay extra!? Last year it was included and they put the extra details of molding it into a star, but I'm sure most people eat rice with their curry so I'm not sure why you would be charged extra. I will say the dessert was delicious, we had fried bananas with fresh mango ice cream for one couple and with coconut ice cream for the other couple. The coconut milkshake was also enjoyable. Overall this time around it wasnt completely enjoyable because I hyped it up for the rest of our friends who had never been, My suggestion, go for lunch or an early dinner
