Chai the owner has really done it with this place! Ambiance, staff and amazing food! I love the Red Curry Duck-a must have! Pad Thai has chicken and shrimp. Request medium spice!

We live in the neighborhood and frequent Basil a few times a year. Food was good, as usual, but there were fruit flies everywhere. It was disgusting, unappetizing and unacceptable. I told the waitress, after I clearly had not eaten much off my plate, and she just said "yeah, it's been a huge problem recently". We were happy to pay,... More

My husband ate here on our way back to our hotel from the football game this weekend. Even though the restaurant was very busy, we received great service and the food was excellent. One of the best Thai meals we have ever had. Thank you!

The food was excellent, my husband and I ordered the mixed seafood soup and chicken soup as a starter, the waitress did warn that you usually share a soup, and she was right. We then had the chefs choice of duck which was fabulous but again we ordered two portions which was far too much, not sure if the waitress... More

My wife and I recently went to Basil for a date night. Making the reservation was fairly easy online, but it did take them ~48 hours to get back to me. By the time I heard back, I had already made a reservation elsewhere, since I was not sure if the Basil reservation was going to come through. When we... More

These guys don't accommodate larger groups and to reserve a table here you have to place a deposit. And if you don't have a reservation, they will make every effort to offend you and they don't bother if you leave. This is the second instance it happened to our group. I didn't wanted to visit this place again because of... More

While in town for a Pinball Tourny, our group of 5 stopped by for an early dinner. Unfortunately, the poor Bartender was also our server. We got very little attention since his bar area was being seated rapidly & patrons were also trickling in to the bar. Once the food started coming out, more servers appeared. That was good. The...

Had a nice glass of wine at the bar after I ordered the Pad Thai with all shrimp to go. Before I left, I checked my order and it had chicken and shrimp. When brought to the attention of the bartender/server, he assured me that it would take just a few minutes to get it right. He gave me another... More
