“One of my favorite restaurant in Foster City”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

Love all their eggplant dishes. Coconut soup is really refreshing. Curry dishes are all yummy. All dishes have great presentation. Atmosphere is great but seats can be uncomfortable if you are there more than 1 1/2 hours. Can get noisy during the popular hours.

“Great food with BAD accoustic”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Sweet Basil is a great restaurant in the wrong place. The food it absolutely Delicious clean and served with great presentations. The price is fine but the structure of the place lets you hear anyone talking. I will not recommend to dine in But definitely take out or dine in when it is not crowded. Lunch is the wrong place to dine in but a late lunch can be the right way to go.

“Good Thai food”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

This restaurant is in one of the smaller strip malls in town and it has a sister restaurant right next door (for vegetarians). Decent atmosphere. No views (parking lot).
Food is quite good and not overly expensive. Service is good too.
It always seems to be busy and there's good reason for that.

“Sweet Deal”
Reviewed March 18, 2014 via mobile

We were visiting family from out of town and tried this restaurant. It is comfortable and attractive. We were greeted and seated immediately and the service was excellent. The seared ahi
Tuna appetizer was phenomenal. My entree was loaded with seafood and veggies were very fresh. White Tuna Green Curry very good according to hubby. Desserts excellent as well. Save room for Flute Limoncello or exotic Bomba. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

“Good Asian Cuisine on the Peninsula”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

A good choice for moderately priced fresh Thai food. We tried the Springs Rolls, which were fresh, crisp and served with a peanut sauce blended with spices to just the right combination. The Volcanic Beef entrée was very good as well; the beef was tender, without MSG and the vegetables were seared perfectly.
