Great dinner at Basil. It was a nice change of pace from the southern Charleston cuisine. Very authentic and great flavors.

We were an extended family of 8 people and we ate on a Friday lunch. They have good Thai food though not an extensive menu. Good ambience, attentive service. We were all happy with the food and we will be back.
