Pad Thai and Pad See ew were not sweet, but sour and tangy. Maybe it's a different style, but I just didn't like it. The Panang curry was good though. Chicken was typical cheap chicken.

We both had the pad Thai -- it was okay. It was fresh but had an odd flavor to the sauce. The service was good and the place is cute and clean. I would try again but get something else.
We've been making this an annual stop for a meal since we started coming to the north-of-San Diego area several years ago. Siamese Basil is a no-frills, informal family-run restaurant with delicious, fresh and well-prepared food. Try the Thai Eggplant Special for a real treat.
