Once again raved to a friend and took her their for lunch. The appetizers are amazing as well as the pad Thai. Delicious drinks. Those martinis are the best. If I lived closer I'd be there all time. Forgot to mention how pretty it is on the inside.

We've eaten hear a few times, and it's generally a pleasant experience (though the last time, our young waitress was either having a bad day or needed an attitude adjustment. Answering the simplest of politely-asked questions was clearly annoying to her). Other than the one day of bad service, the food is consistently pleasant, if not over-the-top wow, and the... More

Conveniently located, food was delicious, fresh and service was quick. Can be busy during peak hours, so plan ahead.

This is a good place for lunch or dinner when you want some authentic Thai cuisine. We stopped here recently for lunch and were seated immediately. My wife always chooses a variation of Pad Thai. I usually choose something else so we can try each other's dish. Never a disappointment here on Main Street in Manchester Center.

My husband and I love Thai food. This is some of the best we've eaten. The service was excellent, and the atmosphere was nicer than the usual quick Thai food restaurant.

I really enjoyed the food here -- veggie rolls were fantastic, so hot and crisp. Pork was good too. Good service, fast.

Drove down with family to this place and worth it! The Pad thai, red snapper (see pic) and steamed pot stickers were amazing. Cute setup in an older refurbished home in downtown Manchester. Fun location, albeit a bit noisy. Can't wait to go back!

Stopped by the Thai Basil for lunch on a beautiful fall day. The luncheon menu was one page front and back with simple descriptions of the fare being offered. It couldn't have been more deceptive. For the first course we had generous bowls of coconut cream soup, seasoned with lemongrass and other delicate spices, and accompanied with chicken, mushrooms, and... More

Good Thai food in a nice setting in Manchester. Great service and reasonable prices. If you really like Thai food and Thai spice, let the server know!
