We have been going to Sweet Basil for years, and the service and food have always been good. They're also great for carry out. The food isn't outrageous with the ingredients or spices, but it is prepared well. Occasionally there will be a little Inconsistency (one night the noddles might taste a little different than another night), but I suppose... More

I have had better. My expectations where higher than what I recieved. The food was good and at a good price point for the area. The service and attention where very good. Maybe cause there was only 5 table occupied on a Thursday nigth during prime dinner time. I had a spicy crab roll and the Red Curry both pictured.... More

Was passing thru Chattanooga around lunch time and had been thinking about Thai food. Found Sweet Basil Thai using my Trip Advisor app. I have eaten Thai food all around the country and I found this place to hold their own with others I have enjoyed. The Tom Yum soup was as good as any i have had. The fresh... More

I occasionally travel to this part of Chattanooga and usually end up eating at Sweet Basil Thai Cuisine for a light lunch. I don't even look at the menu anymore. I just order L-12 chicken. That's their cashew chicken lunch special. It's light yet filling and inexpensive. Love it. Recommend it. If it ain't broke....

Went with my wife for dinner. The best sushi we've had in Chattanooga. Wife had the green curry and I had the red. Both had very good flavor. Service was excellent!

We felt very lucky to find this place open till 10pm on a Sunday night after driving all day. While the restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside, the dining room inside was very nice, with real linens and a soft, candle lit ambiance. We were the only diners there, but nonetheless service was extremely friendly and prompt. Both... More

Found this restaurant on our way and stopped for lunch. Decent place to visit. Food was great and the service was excellent. We asked for vegetarian options for Pad Thai and they made sure not to add fish sauce and egg. Fenny was our waitress and she took care if our request with a big smile. They have a Lunchbox... More

First visit and surprise they are not busy because it was good and super fast service. Little out dated atmosphere because in an older strip mall

I really like this restaurant. I'm in Chattanooga occasionally and this is one of the restaurants on my list. I do have a favorite menu item for lunch. It's the 12L almond chicken. Just the right amount of food. Very flavorful. No wheat. And less than $7.

This was a quiet unassuming Thai restaurant, with convenient parking outside. The service was excellent, and the choice of meals wide. We had the special offer meal for the four of us and the food was freshly prepared, in good quantity and flavoursome. If you like Thai food this was an excellent place to go, and excellent value too.

Thank doc50
