Restaurant is near our home and we've driven by hundreds of times. Decided to try it recently. We wanted to like it. Should have kept driving. Food was mediocre at best. Spring rolls were packed with shredded lettuce, some carrot, a few sprouts and a skimpy bit of shrimp. Noodle dish with pork was all noodles and a nondescript brown... More

They have good lunch specials and great food! Service is fast... I always get the Pad See Ew Dish with chicken. Lunch comes with soup and egg roll. They even have Thai beer!!

I ordered the Tom Yum noodle soup with shrimp. It was not very good. Way below my expectation. And what made it worse was that it costed $14.

We used to live around the corner and frequented this place, mostly for the inexpensive lunch special. It's always packed, chiefly with many non-native employees of Intel, which is right across the street, literally. We had left our dog at the nearby vet for some tests and had 45 minutes to spare so we went for a quick lunch. The... More

We ordered take-out for our family of six, and the food was ready in 20 minutes. The pineapple rice was tasty. The spicy fried rice was good.

On our first night in Phoenix, we drove to downtown. My husband and I saw Thai Basil and liked what we saw. It was well lit and clean. We chose the combination appetizer, he ordered the signature dish with calamari and I ordered the spicy thai noodles. We each decided on level 3 spiciness. Each dish was fresh and well... More

Awesome curry dishes and pad Thai, always fresh and savory. Waiting in line to get your food is a little uncomfortable, as the restaurant is small & understaffed so you'll make friends with the seated diners as everyone waits for their food from the same server. Just know it's worth the wait.

We went here on the Taste It Tour, got to try the Thai tea, soup, pad Thai, and garlic egg plant. I personally wasn't a fan of the soup or the egg plant, there was a ton of flavor and spice and it wasn't for me. People on the tour loved it though. The pad Thai was really great and... More
