We have eaten here several times, both lunch and dinner. It is a bit of a trek for us to get here, so we usually go to a Thai place closer to home. But we decided that it was time for a visit, so we made the drive. Sure glad we did. We arrived a bit before 5:30 on a... More

My wife and I love Thai food. We have been looking for a place close to our house that we like as much as Marnee Thai in San Francisco. This place has come very close. It is small but the kitchen cooks the food fresh as it is ordered. We tried a lot of stuff and enjoyed the leftovers. We... More

Set back in an unassuming small shopping center amongst several other international food restaurants, this was a great surprise. We had Pad Thai with shrimp and chicken, and Curry chicken. The food was freshly cooked, veggies still perfectly crisp. The heat level was well balanced for my tastes ( I did not order a higher heat level), the chicken moist... More

We were in the mood for Thai and ordered take-out with our family. We ordered Panang Curry, Pad See Ew, Pad Thai and some sort of fried rice. Everything was delicious. I would definitely recommend Thai Basil.

The person went together with me gave it five stars and said it is the best Thai food ever! I am surprised it did not come with rice which is a separate order to make the total cost went up. The flavor is good. It has good amount of food. The decoration is interesting inside the store. I like the... More

The taste and price is excellent. Red curry chicken, fish cake paddies, BBQ beef, chicken sate and roti are amongst our favorites. When we want to get a quick Thai bites, this is our monthly take out. Dine in is not recommended, for this place is dim and old...Needs to be renovated or a modern touchup. Service here is friendly... More

We stopped here for a quick lunch while out shopping. We have been here for the dinner menu, and we were not disappointed by our lunch. They offer several inexpensive ($8.95) choices for a quick lunch. Parking can be a problem around the complex at lunch time on a weekday, so if you go grab the first open space you... More

We love this place for takeout. They have an efficient process and if you call ahead it's in and out.

Whenever we're back in Dublin, ,my husband and I always make it a point to eat here. Our favorites are the Thai Basil rice and the barbeque . I love the Penang curry too.

On a breezy day, we chose Thai food instead of Afghan. The restaurant is rather small and you may feel you'd be marinated by the smell. We order a pad Thai and a yellow chicken curry, which are both a bit sweet even though you're already acknowledge that Thai food is strong in every sense. There's nothing to complain about,... More
