Definitely the best thai food in Black Mountain! The tea is great, all of the dishes we've had have been delicious!

We have visited Thailand multiple times so was delighted to have a couple of curry soups and lemon grass chicken soup here. The tastes, smells and tangy flavors were exactly what we missed! Prices were a little on the higher side but we would go there again.

We ate at Thai Basil for the first time and the food was incredible. The Tom Ka soup is come of the best I have ever had, and I have traveled all over Asia. As a matter of fact, a friend dining with us was visiting from Malaysia who's work often takes him to Thailand, and he was amazed to... More

Some of the best Tom Ka soup I've had. Pineapple curry is tasty. Fairly small and quiet with good service. Limited parking but more available within a block behind the restaurant.

It was a weeknight in November and not many people there, so maybe just an off night. the service was good and the amount was substantial but not very interesting food this time. I will go back when I am there again... More

My husband and I both ordered a vegetable stir fry at Thai Basil and it was very good. The service was very slow the night we came (peak foliage season in October), but the prices were reasonable and the food tasty and healthy.

Ive been waiting to try this place for years, so tonight I took my chances. We ordered Pad Thai and Massaman Curry with chicken. Completely tasteless. I see other reviewers saying "subtle taste". How about no taste at all. The strange thing was the curry was thick and hearty. The Pad Thai was cooked with what appeared to be fresh... More
