Great Asian-fusion menu, nice atmosphere, and prompt, friendly service makes Le Basil our go-to restaurant any day of the week in Palm Desert. We've tried many dishes and all are very good, but don't miss the Bun or the Crispy Fish Salad, which are outstanding. Also note: The interior decor has been enhanced since the photos above. New booths and... More

Delicious, excellent service. One of our favorite places in Palm Desert! Service is friendly but can be slow to refill water. Will definitely go back next time I'm in PD.

We enjoyed our dinner here very much. Seems popular with locals. Food was somewhat different than standard restaurant selections. We really enjoyed the Banh Xio, which the owner had to instruct us in how to eat it! Fun experience. Friendly staff.

Had been here a couple of times 2 years and was happy with both visits. This time I was not. The food and service were a letdown down from last time. Had pad Thai and the noodles were mushy. To say the service was bad would be a compliment. Based on this last visit, I could not recommended.

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel, while this restaurant was very good, our curry was a little thin. The Thai ice tea and Pad Thai were excellent. Service was good also, I recommend making a reservation as the seating is limited.

Le Basil offers a solid varied Thai menu. All items are delicious. Lunch menu is a great value. Service is always outstanding. Try Thai ice tea if you haven't had it before. It pairs wonderfully with the Thai food and offsets the heat of spicy dishes. Staff and owner, Tom, are most accommodating and helpful.
