Sweet Basil is our favorite Thai take out, Its very popular and we do eat there on occasion. But it is our go to place when we do not want to cook. Good curries and noodle dishes.

A reliable food spot for locals. Thai food is good with many choice entrees at moderate pricing. A plus for accessibility is that this place doesn’t close between lunch and dinner. Thus, one can easily venture here for a mnlate lunch or early dinner.

Inside and out this restaurant offers a lively view for a lovely meal of all the delicious Thai food on the menu. Everything is good, and the owners and staff are as pleasant as can be imagined. Enjoy!

Off the beat little Thai restaurant with limited taste and Thai condiments. The food was mediocre at best and mostly tasteless. There was no condiment plate with fresh mint and vegetables as usually presented in Thai food...even at lunch. The serving staff was ok but...More
