Reviewed 6 April 2018 via mobile

We came here for dinner and it was a very small restaurant. There was enough room for a row of tables on each side of the door extending back to the cashier. The wait was only a couple of minutes.

Most of the dishes on the menu were served with rice except for the noodles. The menu contains photos and descriptions of each dish. We ordered the following:

BBQ pork skewers (4 sticks with a sweet sauce) Chicken Pad Thai - a little thick on the sauce, lots of ground peanuts, and chicken.
massaman curry - a good amount of beef and 2 carrots. Sauce was slightly spicy.

Overall a very good meal for the price.

They also served boba tea that some students just came in and purchased without a meal.

This tiny restaurant in a narrow store-front in a strip mall just steps from the Purdue campus serves Thai food fast. Since I ate the entire large portion of pineapple rice with chicken, the meal was good but lacked the finesse of other Thai restaurants I been to. My server was attentive. I recommend Basil Thai for adults like myself who have forgotten our long ago college days!

This is a "must go to" place for us. We love their foods and bubble teas. Unlike some other reviewers, we don't find it particularly expensive, and in all the years we've been coming here, we have never had anything less than excellent quality! Staff has been very helpful and polite to us.
