The secret’s out about Basil Thai Restaurant and it’s too good not to share.

As the doors open, you get transported into a secret Thai garden. A rock wall covers one side and different ethnic accents are placed on the surrounding walls, with the soothing sound of water nearby.... Basil showcases Asian-inspired simplicity, with wood dominating the materials from the ceiling to the carved chairs and natural greens to soften the ambience. We’re glad we let our curiosity get the best of us. Go ahead and see what that big door holds for you. The secret’s out about Basil Thai Restaurant and it’s too good not to share.

it was soooo good!

The Spicy Wagyu Ribs... I'm glad we ordered this as it was soooo good! The beef was just so flavorful. The meat was fork-tender and we all enjoyed scooping up the sauce to drizzle over our rice.

everything is made from scratch

Here, everything is made from scratch. No shortcuts and prepared mixes. All dishes are painstakingly made by the manual pounding of the spices to the precise mixing of ingredients, and it it because of this that the food takes a little longer than usual to get to your table.
