Quick, friendly service. Lots of food, can substitute brown rice for white rice. Delicious curries, great lunch specials and Tuesday night special (make it dinner and a movie with Carmike also offering Tuesday discounts). Good sushi and rice paper rolls too. The music always gets me...I think I've heard an elevator instrumental version of "Colors of the Wind" one too... More

I ordered the lunch #12 chicken with brown rice. Same thing I always order because it's always good and exactly what I like. As usual, it was excellent and far more food than I really needed. And a bargain. Service was good too. Food arrived very quickly.

I am a frequent customer and I can honestly say I have never had a bad meal! Service is amazing. Try the Smoky Mountain Roll - and don't forget the Thai Tea ❤

I've been coming here for a few years and it's always consistently good. Some "go-to" items are the spring rolls and the duck. They also have some of the best beef fried rice in town. Service is pretty good,yet sometimes awkward. It's nice having a gem like this in the neighborhood.

The shrimp roll was awesome....but the entree was ok, gave 3 stars because of the service. Would not go back.

This was my first experience at a Thai restaurant and I found it to be amazingly good. They use fresh ingredients and the Thai tea is so good - never had anything quite like it but I highly recommend it. My date and I enjoyed an appetizer of California rolls and Alaskan rolls - highly recommend those as well. The... More

We have been going to Sweet Basil for years, and the service and food have always been good. They're also great for carry out. The food isn't outrageous with the ingredients or spices, but it is prepared well. Occasionally there will be a little Inconsistency (one night the noddles might taste a little different than another night), but I suppose... More

I have had better. My expectations where higher than what I recieved. The food was good and at a good price point for the area. The service and attention where very good. Maybe cause there was only 5 table occupied on a Thursday nigth during prime dinner time. I had a spicy crab roll and the Red Curry both pictured.... More

Was passing thru Chattanooga around lunch time and had been thinking about Thai food. Found Sweet Basil Thai using my Trip Advisor app. I have eaten Thai food all around the country and I found this place to hold their own with others I have enjoyed. The Tom Yum soup was as good as any i have had. The fresh... More

I occasionally travel to this part of Chattanooga and usually end up eating at Sweet Basil Thai Cuisine for a light lunch. I don't even look at the menu anymore. I just order L-12 chicken. That's their cashew chicken lunch special. It's light yet filling and inexpensive. Love it. Recommend it. If it ain't broke....
