We are a group of 3 ladies visiting Paso Robles. We decided on Thai food for dinner. This place did not disappoint. We only waited about 5 minutes to be seated. Food came in good time, even though the whole place was full. Steaming hot, flavorful and good size portions. The price was affordable and centrally located downtown. I would... More

We were traveling on Christmas Day and wandered into Basil for dinner. It was warm and inviting. We sat at the bar and had a delicious dinner cooked to perfection. The restaurant was crowded and the takeout was busy. We had wonderful service and did not feel rushed. Would recommend this restaurant for a great meal out.

On a Saturday I had dinner there, no reservation made but there was still space. The food was excellent and also a very good price/quality ratio. I appreciated as well that they offered a strong list of local wines which is not common for thai restaurant! The service was very good too

We went here as a family and there was something for everyone. Loads of vegetarian and gluten free options as well as fantastic spicy beef noodle and chicken panang curry. Service was attentive despite how busy it was. Delicious!

There aren't too many nom-junk/fast food places to eat in Paso Robles that we could find and took pot luck on this Thai restaurant, but it was excellent. The portions are big, but boxes are provided to take home, if needed. There were four of us and we shared the combi-platter for starters. It was delicious with delicate flavours and... More

We stopped here for dinner while meandering through Paso Robles Square and it was crowded but delicious. I would definitely eat hear again and would definitely have the Pad Thai again. Then stop by Hatch for a custom ice cream sandwich for dessert.

I always make it a point to stop at Basil Thai every time I'm in Paso and have never had a bad meal. This time I tried something different and ordered ginger, shiitake and greens. I was not disappointed! The meal was gingery, vegetables crispy and seasoned perfectly. Don't forget to order mango sticky rice. If they're out order the... More
