This is some of the best Thai food we've ever had, and we've been to Thailand! Panang Curry is the all time greatest. The prices are great and the smoothies are really good too.

I have had two dishes (basil chicken &a drunken noodles). They were both delicious! Very clean and nice sit down environment. Good friendly service.

We decided to try this restaurant and not go to our usual place for Thai, and we were very pleased. Very fresh food. Will definitely return. The vegetables were plentiful in the dishes and the servings were a good size-not too big or too small.

We have been here a dozen times and have always had wonderful service and excellent fresh hot food. The staff is always watching to see what you need and the menu has a big variety. Lunch specials include soup, egg roll with lunch choice.

The Thai was very good. There were several military personnel there. Military folk tend to go to places where the food is good but not too expensive. Thai Basil fits that description. The summer rolls were particular good. They have lunch sprcials.

Great find while passing through Springfield. Service was prompt and friendly. Food was excellent. We especially loved the pad see ew- the noodles (I think) were made from scratch- at least they tasted like it. I don't always like fried rice- rest of my family...More

They kick you out precisely at closing time and will not let you finish your meal. The place is obviously take-out nearly 100% - the tables are just there for show. The menu pictures are extremely generic, and show this is "American Thai food". As...More
