Located in the center of Manchester Center, this Thai restaurant and a full selection of thai appetizers, entrees, and is extremely reasonably priced. The tables are nicely decorated with fresh flowers, double table cloths on all tables, and the decor is appropriate and not overdone. The restaurant has excellent views of the main drag through Manchester, and, with the recent renovation of the street scape last summer, there is now an extra wide brick sidewalk out front, and I am thinking that there may be outdoor seating there this summer.
Anyhow, the food we had was also excellent. The pad thai vegetable was not too sweet and delicious, the curry dish vegetable was outstanding and spiced to my order, and piping (temperature) hot, the papaya salad was also excellent as were the two appetizers we had, the Thai Spring roll selection and the crab wonton, were among the best we have ever had. The meal was an absolute delight in all respects.
The service was also outstanding - young gentleman server - timely throughout our meal, knew and understood what the menu items were, seated us in a perfect location and was attentive but not overly so.
In all, this is an excellent addition to the Manchester restaurant scene, and it an outstanding value for the very high quality food we were served. CH

We frequently travel to Manchester and each trip includes a dinner at Thai Basil. Their food is fantastic and service has always been great. Since our previous trip, I learned that I had celiacs, so our restaurant choices were based on the availability of gluten-free options. Thai Basil's menu has many options that are clearly labeled with a "GF" so it made things unbelievably simple. We will continue to make a stop at Thai Basil a part of each trip.

Upscale white table cloths belie uneven food and service. Ordered tea for two and got cups of water and bag selection. Tom Yum soup was cloudy and bland. Basil rolls very nice. Asked for spicy basil pork. Server, Nan forgot. Second try it was tasty. Empty water glass was annoying.

It was a pleasant surprise as we stepped into the restaurant, nice atmosphere and friendly staff. The food was wonderful, very fresh and fragrant, definitely a good place for a sit-down dinner.

Good, authentic Thai food and quality service. They are over-cautious on "hot" markers as the actual food is quite tame. The menu is solid, but somewhat limited in scope relative to other Thai places I've been.
