“I ate half of a duck here...”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

...and it was a religious experience. We cancelled reservations at FIG and SNOB (so many acronyms in the Charleston restaurant scene) to walk-in to Basil. We were not disappointed. Strongly suggest attempting to snag the chef's table; kitchen staff is professional, and skill is apparent. A big win.

“Yum”
Reviewed July 21, 2014 via mobile

Basil Thai never disappoints. Excellent service and delicious cuisine at a reasonable price point. Ginger chicken is one of our favorites. Pad Thai, spring rolls or a great soup. You can't go wrong.

“Service and Good food”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

The service is great. The food is wonderful. The atmosphere is pleasing. What is there not to like? Located in a shopping strip area with a view of a lake, this is a good place for lunch or dinner.

“Yummy Thai!”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

I love coming to Basil. The environment is very clean and modern with an Asian twist. Outside and inside seating available, and both are desirable. The menu is authentic Thai with several noodle dishes, soups, basil rolls, as well as rice choices. You have your choice of protein with each dish (tofu, chicken, beef or shrimp). My husband always gets the Basil fish, which is large enough to share. Each dish is presented very nicely, and spiced to your preference. The wine list is ample, and the upstairs bar has a great view. This is a great place to come for a special occasion or just a delicious meal. Open for lunch too!
