I've eaten here a couple times. The food is always good and the service is prompt. I usually get a lunch special and the one from today was delicious: Spicy Thai Basil. They always start off with a warm vegetable broth soup. On cold days it's a nice way to warm up.

This was a choice from the TripAdvisor "Near Me Now" feature and did not disappoint. We were in Springfield for an event and looked for a place to stop before heading home. As Thai food fans, we quickly chose this spot. Summer Rolls, Thai Beef Salad, Singapore Noodles and Green Curry with Shrimp were all promptly served, hot,,fresh and flavorful.... More

We enjoy going to Thai Basil. Their Summer Rolls with peanut sauce are delicious. We had the Bume Noodle Soup, dry; those magical Summer Rolls; Drunken Noodle; Pad Woosen and Thai Ice Tea. What a treat! Fast service and delicious food!

My husband and I were out for a drive to Springfield and wanted to try something new for dinner. Found this restaurant while driving around the area. Service was quick, the place was clean. The food was good but rather bland. We had to add soy sauce and sirachi to the dish. Highly recommend the sampler appetizers.

I've always come to Thai Basil for lunch and have never been disappointed. I think I've tried half the things off the lunch menu. You are served soup right away and your food comes out shortly after with a pork or veggie egg roll. The portion sizes are perfect and the taste is delicious. Perfect place for lunch where for...

I've eaten at Thai Basil numerous times - often for lunch and a few times for dinner. The food is great. The service is great. The prices are very reasonable. The staff are all very friendly and make excellent recommendations if you are unsure about what you want. This place is quick, easy, and no hassle.

The food here is terribly un-authentic and oddly slimy. The service is rushed, and rude. I ordered a Thai iced tea, and the milk was bad in the iced tea. When I told the waitress, they would not take the iced tea off my check. I had taken 2 sips, and they insisted that I pay for the whole thing.... More

Most of the time, I just call in the order and they have it ready in about half the time promised. I also visited on an eat in occasion and the service was just as good. Lots of food for the price and always on time. I'm there at least once a week. Can't get enough of the place. The... More

This was actually my husband's introduction to food outside Mexican/Italian/American arena and let's just say we've frequented it quite often since then! A huge selection of food choices and always super good. They also have smoothies of all kinds (mango to even avocado!) if you're ever in the mood for them. I always get the ginger onion shrimp and it's... More
