The food was delicious, well cooked and seasoned just right for me. I had cashew chicken. It had just the right spices. The vegetables were plentiful and cooked perfectly. The service was attentive but not obtrusive, approaching the moment I looked up for them. Food arrived quickly. I will be recommending Thai Basil to my friends.

Average Thai food. Had the tofu triangles which were on the bland side. The vegetable Thai fried rice and pad see you with chicken were both decent but not great. Pleasant atmosphere and decent service. There are better choices around the area.

I come here often on lunch. It is a quaint little place, nice atmosphere, and the food comes quickly! It is a must try if you are in the area!

When you want a quick, healthy, reasonably priced dinner, this restaurant is just about perfect. My dish of ginger tofu with veggies was a rainbow of colors, flavors, and spices. Just about perfect. Service was quick, everyone was friendly, and the restaurant was simple, comfortable and clean. Parking is easy in big lot. Other patrons seemed pleased with the original... More

Its nice and quite place. Very warm staffs. They usually take time to bring the food. But food is surely delicious.i ordered red curry. Which came out little sweet, sour in taste. It came with a bowl of rice. The service is slow but food is really good to try on.

The service is pretty poor and the food isnt that great. You're better off going to Four Seasons on Stelton Road.

This was our first time at this Restaurant. The late hour, the cold rain, and the heavy traffic on the nearby highway made us veer off to stop for dinner. We were greeted very warmly as we entered. We were given the table of our choice and the menu was brought almost immediately. We noticed that there were plenty of... More

The place isn't particularly bad and the food also tastes okay. Nothing much to write of. Service is very average as the owner himself tries to do multitask.
