A long-standing member of my "what do I want to eat tonight" roster in West Hartford. Not a terribly scenic part of town, but very close to a big movie theater. The interior is quite nice, with big banquettes and comfortable seating. The atmosphere is quiet and the service is quick and accommodating. I've had several meals here and the food is consistently good. On our most recent visit I had the banana leaf salmon (delicious) and my wife had the thai vegetable soup (also excellent) and she also ordered the mango curry rice which was much better than we expected. A cut above the other thai places in town.

Please visit and eat at Hot Basil! The best just the best! The cashew chicken is delicious. The Satay is yummy. Bring your own to drink or order from their wine and beer lists. Warm, inviting and wonderful owners and staff.

Another great visit to hot basil. Friendly fast service. We shared two appetizers with the crab roll being the best. Three entrees included drunken noodles, hot basil chicken, and glass noodles with shrimp and all were great. Love this place.

We have dined at hot basil for may years. We had two appetizers and three entrees for $63. I think this is a great place. The best dish is the hot basil with any protein.
