Been to the Basil about 5 times and always come away wondering why I don't frequent them more often. I'm currently exploring their many types of curry along with noodle dishes. My Vegen daughter comes away satisfied as well. Very happy, pleasant crew...great service even when they are packed.

I had been wanting some good Thai pad Thai. It was fabulous! Great flavor without the syrup that So many Thai restaurants do. You will not be disappointed in the service, cleaniness, Pricing & taste.

I've been to Thailand several times and eaten Thai food all over the world, and The Basil could go head to head with any of the best! The Spicy Basil Noodle (Pad Kee Mao) is the best I've had anywhere, and I've never been disappointed by anything on the menu. Highly recommended!

The Basil has long been one of our favorites. They were perhaps a notch better before the long-time matre'd left and was replaced by the owner, but it is still an excellent dining experience. Rather than just the standard Thai recipes, which they also have, Thai Basil offers soft shell crabs, whole fish, and a variety of tasty appetizers. The... More

The Basil served excellent Thai food. It was very flavorful and had fresh ingredients. I ordered my dish with no meat and I got lots of extra vegetables. The setting was nice and the waitress was very attentive. It was slightly more expensive than other Thai restaurants I have been to, but the food quality was exceptional.

This is a very lovely Thai restaurant. The food is really good, the staff is very caring and each portion is beautifully presented. If you have been visiting the casino buffets - this is a wonderful, healthy change. Who would have known there are so many great places to eat in Carson City?

Very nice dinner. Good, spicy food, clean and friendly, worth finding this place. Spice tray came with dinner, and hot tea. At first the food did not seem like anything special but it definitely grew on us and we would eat here again. The staff was helpful, prices were reasonable and there was a wide variety of choices. I would... More
