The two main reasons of starting this restaurant were to bring our family back together and serve fresh and healthy food. We would love to bring the balance of the four fundamental (sweet, sour, salty and spicy) tastes senses in each dish. All of our secret ingredients are from mom and sister. Our goal is to create new experience of Thai cuisine and Sushi to the community of Winton Salem. Please come joy us for new experience.

Happened to see this place while driving by. Very good service. Made a mistake on my order, but fixed it in less than 2 minutes with several people stopping by to apologize. Sushi tasted great and very fresh. Spicy tuna had a nice bite to it. Nigiri was well made. Recommend.

Basil Leaf Thai – Winston Salem

Winston Salem is a long way from the coast so maybe it is too much to hope for really good Sushi. Nevertheless, we are trying. Basil Leaf Thai out on Hane’s Mall Boulevard is certainly a popular place. We beat the crowd at about 6:30 but the place was jammed by 7:00 last Friday. My daughters pad thai was very good so maybe most folks come here for the Thai not the Sushi.
We sat at the bar but the cases were so high that we couldn’t ever see the itamae much less ask him what he had on offer. The waiter was helpful but I missed interacting with the guy that was actually doing the work. What we were served was OK but most of it was not very inspired. The Shiromi sashimi was not very thin, only two pieces and served on that tasteless grated whatever it is that you see so often. No sauce other that the shoyu already on the table was served. The Sake was served in a bottle with a screw top! One of the nigiri choices was really good, the Hokkigai (Surf Clam) was beautiful and tasty but it was an exception. Everything else was good just not exceptional and the lack of any interaction with the Sushi Chef was a real annoyance. I am giving this place three stars since it was really OK. Nothing bad but if you are hoping for great Sushi don’t get your hopes up.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Monday was our first time to have lunch at Basil Leaf.......Same GOOD food and same GREAT service........We have had dinner here lots of times:-) Monday's are half off a (bottle) of wine.

This made a great NEW YEARS EVE lunch even better:-) This is my second review for this place........we love it....Try the shrimp in a blanket on the appetizer menu.

NO sushi on Monday's that's okay......All the food is great....can't wait to go back.

“Outstanding food, service and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

The Basil Leaf has been a favorite in our family since our first visit. The food is well seasoned and the portions are more than adequate. The service is impeccable. We have yet to have a dish there that we did not love. My favorite is the vegetable Pad Thai, but my daughter loves the chicken skewers. It seems the chef puts time and effort into creating attractive as well as delicious dishes.

“Now I'll never have to decide between sushi and thai!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

The Indian restaurant I usually go when I'm in town was closed, so we decided to try something new. We certainly were not disappointed! We were seated fairly quickly (although next time I'll call ahead for a Saturday night). Nice decor, very busy but not too crowded feeling. Wonderful service and very well priced. The spicy tuna roll we had as an appetizer was fresh and delicious, and the 3 thai dishes the 3 of us shared for dinner left no room for dessert. The spicy stir fried noodles were my favorite with the fried rice and spicy fish a very close second. This is one of my favorite new restaurants!
