I've only had take out from this restaurant, but it was delicious! The staff is friendly and the service is good. Excellent Pad Thai. On street parking only.

The food at Red Basil is just excellent! I had their Thai sampler to start off with which is so much cheaper than ordering multiple appetizers and it gives you a small taste of everything. Everything on the sampler was well cooked and packed with flavor. The Shu Mai and Spring Rolls were a stand out. Their Pad Thai was... More

Flavours were perfect, and the curry not too spicy. For dinner, I had the fried rice with crispy pork and it was AMAZING. I wish this place was closer to my... More

This one of the best Thai places. We have eaten in the restaurant in the past, but the last two times were take-out, delivery. The food is terrific. It was delivered as ordered and on time.

We visited here for the first time. Our meal started with the Red Basil Combo which gave a variety of appetizers. The food was tasty. We also had Tom Yum and Tom Kha soup. Both were very tasty and in each you chose the meat you want to add. The added chicken was very well done. For entrees we tried... More

Was traveling in the area and just decided to do delivery. The online ratings for this place was above average and I was shocked the food got above an average. I ordered a number of things to try and everything was just ok and lacking flavor. Would not recommend and try one of the many other options in this area.

really like most of their offerings, from soups to entrees. Like the dimly lit atmosphere, good spot for taking a date. The food is fresh and tasty!

Cozy little place in Rutherford, NJ.. just off the main avenue, Park Avenue; very good food, moderate prices, bring your own wine / beer; liquor store a block away. Onky negative, i ordered rice pudding for dessert, it was good but extremely small for the price.

this used to be the Spring Grill, but I think that Red Basil has been open at that location since 2010; it has very delicious Thai food and lots of vegetarian options
