We visited this place because it was near our hotel. And it was delish. Our former neighbor was Thai and this food was easily as good as her homemade meals. We shared the chicken (laarb) salad and an entree. That was more than enough for two people.

My sister and I walked into Thai Basil on a Monday at 1:45....their sign says they close at 2:00 and re-open later for dinner. They welcomed us to have a seat and order and take our time. They actually had several more guests come in after 2:00 and seated them. The food was fresh and made to order.

Thai Basil is what is sometimes referred to as a "hole in the wall," but don't let that deter you. I once dated a man who refused to frequent strip-mall restaurants. Well, that's his loss. This is certainly one of the best smaller Asian restaurants in the Sacramento area. I met my adult nieces there for lunch, and we all... More

I visited this restaurant about a year ago with an after theater group of friends. At that time, I was not particularly impressed. I am happy to report that this time, it was a much better experience. The chicken breasts (two good size ones )I had were tasty. My husband had the prawns which he thought were great. Everyone else... More

Thai Basil continues to be one of my favorite Thai restaurants. They make the tradition Minced Chicken Basil with fried egg on top, over rice.....and I love it. Thought not Thai by birth, the food remains my comfort food. The flavor is so satisfying, and the dishes always filling.

Excellent service, and wait staff who remember their customers, and often what my favorite dish is. Thai food like this is comfort food for me. I especially their Thai Basil chicken which is chicken, veggies and spicy basil over rice, with a fried egg on top. Love the combo, and it always satisfies.

Food is excellent (makes you want to eat more and definitely to go back there as soon as you can. Great idea to have a local singer to come in and perform and even though is not a huge place the music is played at the right volume :)

They make a great traditional Thai basil chicken dish that is hot and spicy and full of great stirfried vegetables, chile, and an egg on top! In... More

I was here with a group of 12. Since I was unfamiliar with Thai Food, I decided to be safe and I ordered a roasted 1/2 chicken. It was so dry, it should not have even been served! Most of the others in the group seemed to like the food, which to me was not eye appealing. The restaurant was... More

I've always favored thai basil for years but then I went for the first time in a while and they gave us rice with a thick black small hair in it! It was taken back and we got another serving with not only 1 hair, but 2!! The manager didn't speak to us very much, he just took it back,... More
