Totally underwhelmed and disappointed. The meat was tough and bland in the Yum Nuea, inedible really( Yum Nuea Beef Salad Grilled beef spiced with chili pepper, tomato, onion, cucumber and lettuce in a lime based dressing) Service was OK. Maybe they do best with the vegetarian dishes.

Never in my life have I tasted such bland food even in the UK (and I lived there for 8 years!). I still can't believe that all the dishes appetizers, main course and all portions were bland and tasteless!!! The food looked fine, but it is truly unbelievable. The atmosphere is fine and service was OK, but I will never... More

3 visits in a month-that possibly says it all. The first visit was more of a try, especially since Green Basisl offers my very fav Fried Ice Cream. Of course amongst the appetizers, we loved Chicken Satay and the Thai Fish Cake (just 5 pieces but tasty enough). And tried Thai fried rice a couple of times and the Thai... More

Very good quality food for the price paid. I love their Pad Thai with Beef, frequently order it and everyday its more tastier. The non-veg is cooked well. The consistency of sauces is good.

White table cloth service at middle class prices. Pot stickers are delightful. Tom Kha Kai soup is a wonderful warm up on these cold winter nights. If the seafood curry is available don't miss it. Oh my what a delight. So many good dishes. Pad Thai is just right. I have been there late at night and always get prompt... More

This is a great place to eat. Always busy, servers are pleasant and fast. Stir Fry Ginger with chicken is very tasty. Great prices and delicious smoothies. Try the Green Tea or Mango Smoothie! Gets busy around lunch time so go early. There is inside and outside seating .

Not bad except that they were out of a couple of dishes. We ate outside overlooking the glorious parking lot. Had to have a mediocre Japanese Sapporo since their stash of Thai beer was depleted. Go figure! For food, Pot Stickers were good as was the papaya salad. Thai curry main dish was yummy, but the spicy catfish lacked sophistication... More

We ate there last night for the first time and Wow-the Food and Service were Excellent! They have outdoor dining. This is now going to be a regular restaurant for us and I am looking to go back in the next couple of weeks.
