We stopped in for lunch after shopping all morning. Kids split a shrimp pad Thai and I got a delicious yellow curry. Professional staff and reasonable prices.

This was the second tome we ate here in the span of a month. The first time was so good that it was a natural choice when we came back up for a few days earlier this month. First of all, the staff couldn't be nicer nor the service more pleasant and efficient! The specialty cocktails are wonderful and their... More

Appetizers, and more appetizers. Some repeat orders. 3 people, 200 bucks including 2 bottles of wine. 2 hours plus. GREAT server named " Punni". We would have returned to eat here a second night but left Manchester a day early due to weather warnings. We will go back.... Definitely.

Stopped by accident. Will return often. Great service. Great variety. Limited but good wine list. Sit and order appetizer after appetizer. Drink wine. A relaxed and memorable evening. As for staff... Ask for Ponney to serve you. Listen to her menu suggestions. Enjoy.

Chose this restaurant because my husband is a vegetarian then I realized since he became one, I, by default have also nixed my meat consumption. Places like this make it so easy to get delicious food that are vegetarian conscience.

The restaurant is lovely, and the service excellent. The dumplings are superb, and the Pad Thai is very good. The vegetables in the dish with sweet and sour sauce were either over-cooked or old. There was too much celery, and even that lacked the crispness one looks for in a stir fry. The tofu in all dishes was very good.

Been here a few times. The food and service are always good. Prices are reasonable. Nice outdoor dining in the summer months.

Everyone in our office was getting a little cranky and we needed something quick before someone said something they would regret. Lol. Not regret but something. Thai Basil is just a very short walk up the street and it was dry and sunny. So we took off to get a table. Oh course it was in the middle of lunch... More

This is a fantastic place for Thai food. I would rate it one of best ever. Recommend the Pad See Yew (spelling?), Thom Kar soup. Cocktails are fabulous. Had the mango martini. Made with real mango.

I can only describe this as an overpriced restaurant, where you pay more for the ambiance than the actual food. My husband and I had dinner here for on New Years Eve. We called ahead for a reservation, but when we arrived they had no record of it. They did however accommodate us and seat us on a slanted table... More
