We were delighted to see that a Thai restaurant was opening on Newcastle St. in historic downtown Brunswick. We are totally committed to the restoration and revitalization that is happening there and love Tipsy's as well as True Vine Wine Shop and Market on Newcastle. We also make sure and attend every First Friday and make reservations for Stratton Hall and absolutely love our experience there. But back to Thai Basil. It has only recently opened. We waited until they had their full liquor license and dined there this past Wednesday. We were absolutely blown away first of all by the ambience. Exposed brick walls on one side, high ceilings with cork walls on the other side. They have preserved the archecticure of the building with the huge front doors. We are originally from NYC and this would have rivaled many a restaurant as far as decor. The bathrooms were beautifully decorated and used turkish hand towels instead of paper.
So you say. What about the food. The menu was thoughtful. You need not be a true Thai lover to eat here.
The Taste of Basil appetizer was enough for two. The spring rolls were perfection. The chicken and beef satay were wonderful. We had the duck entree and scallps and each one was done to perfection. We talked with the owner and he will be extending the wine menu in the coming weeks. Please understand that they have only just opened and are busily tweaking everything from menus to service and beyond. We found the staff to be friendly and willing to please.

Like any new restaurant they need time to breathe. But ultimately I think this is a place you will return to again and again.

My wife and I have, once again, had a smokin meal at one of our favorite spots in the world! We are so thankful this place is here. The food, staff and location are 5-STARS+. If you are ever in Brunswick Ga this is a must eat. The sushi and curry are my favorite anywhere. Keep up the excellent work TC!
FYI, the squid salad is second to none in my book and I've eaten it in many locals.

This place is great! Crunch roll is usually what I order and it's perfect every time! As far as appetizers go, I've had the spring rolls, fusion rolls, & the steamed dumplings - all are excellent choices. The fried rice and roasted duck are my favorite entrees. The fried rice also has pineapple and cucumber - it's a great mixture!

Service is A+ every time. Everyone is helpful and very nice. This is a wonderful addition to the growing downtown of Brunswick!

Had a wonderful dinner there. There were four of us who have probably eaten at most of the restaurants in Brunswick and Saint Simons. This is a wonderful new addition to the area.
Food was beautifully prepared with a very nice presentation. The decor is very upbeat and comfortable. All of us had a fun time trying to pick out what to order. To a person we all said how outstanding their dinner was!
We will definitely be back!
