Stopped in for lunch on a recent trip to Springfield. Food was fast but came out hot and fresh. I had the chicken pad Thai which was great but I would have preferred a bit of spice to it. Also had the golden triangle appetizer...More

Thai Basil has a similar feel to your usual Asian strip mall restaurants. Unfortunately, the Thai food is not as authentic as you can find in other Central IL towns (Bloomington, Decatur). The fried tofu appetizer tasted like it was fried in all other meats...More

We went to Thai Basil today for lunch and the food was average and definitely not something to write home about. The sauces appeared to be diluted down and not very tasty. Prices were very reasonable but if you're looking for high-end Thai food this...More

I've eaten here a number of times, & have never been disappointed. The pho is my favorite, but I've had several of their dishes and the food has always been great! Service is quick, and the wait staff is friendly. If you get carryout, check...More
