Yummy sake, great food and excellent service. Just the best!!!! Brought friends, including some who've eaten in Thailand. We all loved it! Food, service and value are all excellent. I can't get the circles to react properly below. Sorry.

We call ahead to get take out at Thai Basil. The fish dishes are great. I really like the catfish. The food is always hot and the service is friendly and quick

Food was delish! Service was great too. We had a large group. 11 adults and 6 kids under the age of 7. They were happy to accommodate us and were very helpful. Family tradition that we always get Thai food. Glad we did it here!

The few times I've eaten here the vegetables are perfect: tender, fresh, delicious and never overcooked. Service has been excellent.

We tried two appetizers and two entrees and thought that all four of the offerings had wonderful flavor, they were simply prepared and the flavor carried the dishes. Would go back multiple times!

Yes, Thai Basil's outside patio seating is most definitely pet friendly!

They've got tons of gluten-free options; staple grain is rice, and many of the noodles are rice noodles instead of wheat. I'd always make sure to ask first... but this spot is perfect for GF dining.

They sell beer and cider for sure. Think there was also wine but didn't really look at the list that hard. As for bringing your own bottle I don't know if they would have a corkage fee.
