This is some of the best Thai food we've ever had, and we've been to Thailand! Panang Curry is the all time greatest. The prices are great and the smoothies are really good too.

We decided to try this restaurant and not go to our usual place for Thai, and we were very pleased. Very fresh food. Will definitely return. The vegetables were plentiful in the dishes and the servings were a good size-not too big or too small.

Met some friends for dinner here last night. The restaurant interior was clean and brightly lit. The wait staff was efficient and friendly. I ordered a sizzling seafood dish, one of my friends ordered an asparagus dish with chicken and my other friend ordered a spicy vegetable dish. All of us enjoyed our meals. I also ordered Thai iced tea,... More

We have been here a dozen times and have always had wonderful service and excellent fresh hot food. The staff is always watching to see what you need and the menu has a big variety. Lunch specials include soup, egg roll with lunch choice.

The Thai was very good. There were several military personnel there. Military folk tend to go to places where the food is good but not too expensive. Thai Basil fits that description. The summer rolls were particular good. They have lunch sprcials.

Great find while passing through Springfield. Service was prompt and friendly. Food was excellent. We especially loved the pad see ew- the noodles (I think) were made from scratch- at least they tasted like it. I don't always like fried rice- rest of my family does- but I got a second helping of this fried rice. We also enjoyed the... More

A non assuming restaurant located just off the interstate in a small strip mall. Wasn't sure what to expect but wanted something simple and tasty. Ordered the noodle luch special and was immediately provided with a small vegetable soup. Wow, what a wonderful taste! Smooth, not too salty, and pure vegetable taste. A very good soup that really surpassed anything... More

They kick you out precisely at closing time and will not let you finish your meal. The place is obviously take-out nearly 100% - the tables are just there for show. The menu pictures are extremely generic, and show this is "American Thai food". As for the food itself - well, we didn't get served - we ordered, but got... More
