WOWZA! Stopped in for a late dinner after a weekend away from LA. My boyfriend and I can't think of a better Thai food experience than this! The service was outstanding and the food was sensational! We love spicy everything! And, we ordered basil beef and a seafood pad kee maw, we asked for spicy... They did not let us down! Everything was tender and seasoned perfectly! We were virtually licking our plates! Saving this restaurant for any future visits to Paso Robles. Y-U-M. 10/10


Terrific Thai food, healthy wine pours and efficient and extremely pleasant service! What’s Not to Love?! Highly recommend!!


It is a cute little restaurant with very good service. Service is very quick and food is very presentable. If you want Thai food, this your go to place in town.

Food is ok. Definitely not the best Thai food, and it’s overpriced in my opinion, but it’s Thai food. Service has been questionable at best the three times we have eaten there - keeps getting worse - both take out and dine in.Seemingly impossible to order online - even though they have a presence on three ordering Platforms and claim to take orders on their website (although they denied having a website so it’s very confusing?) Uber eats and grub hub took the orders and then said they were closed when the restaurant was open for 4 more hours.I would not recommend this place, but continue to eat here because they have Thai food.

We were skeptic about eating Asian food here in Paso. But this place didn't disappoint. We also tried another restaurant called Thai Classic also nearby walking distance to Basil Thai and it was also good. You cannot go wrong with thai food here. We walked in around 8pm and saw that they had 2 tables that were next to the opened windows but the lady said it would be a long wait for those tables. There were other tables nearby and empty, but my parents were scared of covid. So we decided to order food to-go. I saw that wines by the glass were $9-10, I ordered a sauvignon blanc and a cabernet while we waited for our food. When my parents finally decided that they couldn't wait anymore and wanted to sit and eat at a nearby emtpy table, they said they were closing soon so we couldn't. But food came out faster than they anticipated so we had to down our wine quickly. We took our to-go food to the tables outside the movie theater across the street to eat. Food took about 15-20 mins. Everything we ordered were good: papaya salad, shrimp pad thai, green curry with beef, brown rice, and tofu with mixed vegetables. We devoured everything. Plenty of street parking.


One of the best Thai restaurants we’ve ever been to and we try to eat Thai every time we go to a different city. All of us had a different meal and everyone loved what they had.

Super consistent and always delicious. We order take out consistently and sometimes eat in and always enjoy it. Try the papaya salad and Thai platter.

Amazing!! Food was so good, we had a large party and every single person was drooling over their food; and insisting each other try theirs because it was just too good not to. The service was really good as well, they're so friendly and on top of everything. We're from out of town, however we will 100% be returning! We were dreaming of the food a few days afterward, wishing we could order more.

The atmosphere is elegant. With both pre and postmodern Thai themes. The service was impeccable, our food was outstanding, the selection is exceptional sporting both new and old favorites, the restaurant was clean and organized, very well decorated, our food came in waves as it should with the appetizer coming first and the entrees next and dessert after, everything was in perfect order. The quality of the food easily outweighed the price, the restaurant was clean and organized, the service was impeccable our waitress was kind courteous professional and welcoming not to mention prompt, the atmosphere was fantastic you almost don't recognize where you are once you've entered, the food was outstanding as a starter the Thai platter which is essentially a sampler of several dishes each prepared perfectly Thai crispy basil with chicken which was a sweet and sour slightly spicy crisp and sticky saucy chicken adorned with crispy basil leaves atop and finally for dessert a coconut creme brulee that is house-made in an actual coconut shell fantastic presentation and even better flavor. I am a returning customer and will remain as such. Thank you very much for the wonderful experience my family and I were very pleased.

We come whenever we can for the excellent food and friendly service! We particularly enjoyed the vegetarian appetizer plate.


Nice Thai food restaurant. Staff were pleasant and friendly. We ordered the shrimp dumplings, Panang curry with chicken and Green curry with chicken. The flavors were typical for a a Thai restaurant and appropriately spiced consistent with our request. The place got busy and we were handed our check and told there was no hurry but we were not asked if we wanted dessert. Overall a good meal.

The food is so good. I can’t believe I can find such excellent Thai food in Paso Robles. They are more than happy to swap a beer for me when a fly accidentally landed in my drink. The staffs are very friendly.

Good food. Plating issues. Larb and papaya salad were served in a lettuce cup. The lovely dressing drained through and pooled in the plate, leaving the dishes dry. Perhaps the dishes could be served so that the dressing could remain with the food.

Best Thai in Paso. I crave their peanut sauce dishes and love everything. They'll make it as spicy as you want, but they air on the side of caution so you have to be really clear.
