I love Thai food, and this is probably the best! I will definitely be returning! I had the Pad Thai, and the fresh basil rolls! I cannot recommend this place enough! The service was great. We casually mentioned it being one of our friends' birthdays,...More

I had a decent meal, Barumundi fish. I was expecting great, and got good. I was not displeased, but I wouldn't go again. it's a nice place, food and prices are good, but it just left me wanting more.

We were an extended family of 8 people and we ate on a Friday lunch. They have good Thai food though not an extensive menu. Good ambience, attentive service. We were all happy with the food and we will be back.

We had a really enjoyable dinner at Basil. Because the restaurant does not take reservations, we made a point of arriving early. To our surprise, our arrival at 5:30 allowed us to take advantage of happy hour prices (5 to 7pm) for our drinks and...More

Very friendly staff, took great care of us. We ate here with our three young daughters who loved the food, full of flavor but we were able to avoid anything too spicy. If this was a local Thai we'd be here quite often.

We ate here twice during our visit to Charleston. The thai food here is quite authentic and there are many options. Definitely worth a visit

It depends on the age of the child. While we had none with us and I didn't look for high chairs or booster seats, I would say they would enjoy the hustle and bustle. The difficulty would be bringing an infant because the... More
