Reviews for Thai Basil

I've been coming to this place for over a decade and I'm never disappointed. I've tried at least half the items on the menu and can always depend on this place to satisfy me when I have the dilemma of not knowing where to eat. Prices are reasonable but cash only which sometimes can be a bit of an inconvenience.

My wife and I ordered two curry dishes from here.  Both were chicken curries, with different sauces.  Overall they were okay, but the chicken was extremely tough and dry...  For meat drenched in sauce, it is surprising that so little of it gets into the meat.  It was like chewing on chicken jerky bits smothered in delicious sauce with a few huge chicks of carrot/potato tossed in.

I would urge you to consider going vegetarian here.  The veggies in our curries were amazing, full review
This restaurant only takes cash, so come prepared!

My go to order is the Pad Thai with shrimp and it is a LOT for one person. If you do choose to order for yourself you will definitely have enough for lunch the next day. The shrimp however is quite dry and the noodles are not very firm. For the price, you do get a good amount of food and the quality is good - but nothing great.

The restaurant is located inside of Asian Ghetto towards the back, with yellow full review
