Fantastic authentic Thai food. Their house dressing is spicy, salty, and sweet all in one, very gooooooood! The food can be pretty spicy so make sure to ask for your meal less spicy than you would normally get it. ( they let you pick your level of heat 1-10) my husband asked for 5 range of heat and he said it was excellent but really spicy.

We were on our way to Sequoia National Park and stopped overnight in Visalia. For out of towners, just finding this little restaurant is an adventure -- but the food is worth it. Know it is across from Blockbuster near the corner of a large shopping mall.
We shared standards like pad thai, green curry, etc.; all were excellent. The service was helpful and attentive.
We liked Thai Basil so much that we planned to have lunch here on our way out of Sequoia five days later. Unfortunately, it was closed on Saturday for lunch (though apparently open for dinner.)

Thai Basil has excellent food and service. A hidden little secret in our Visalia! The establishment is small and I almost wish it was bigger, but I wonder if that would take away the magic of what Thai Basil is all about. Come ready to wait a while for your food, but be ready to love and enjoy any dish in their menu!!
