When you want a quick, healthy, reasonably priced dinner, this restaurant is just about perfect. My dish of ginger tofu with veggies was a rainbow of colors, flavors, and spices. Just about perfect. Service was quick, everyone was friendly, and the restaurant was simple, comfortable and clean. Parking is easy in big lot. Other patrons seemed pleased with the original... More

Its nice and quite place. Very warm staffs. They usually take time to bring the food. But food is surely delicious.i ordered red curry. Which came out little sweet, sour in taste. It came with a bowl of rice. The service is slow but food is really good to try on.

The service is pretty poor and the food isnt that great. You're better off going to Four Seasons on Stelton Road.

This was our first time at this Restaurant. The late hour, the cold rain, and the heavy traffic on the nearby highway made us veer off to stop for dinner. We were greeted very warmly as we entered. We were given the table of our choice and the menu was brought almost immediately. We noticed that there were plenty of... More

The place isn't particularly bad and the food also tastes okay. Nothing much to write of. Service is very average as the owner himself tries to do multitask.

Ordered Mango chicken curry and Cappuccino Chocolate Mousse cake. Both were delicious and plentiful. Effort was made to present dishes attractively. Quiet atmosphere. My friends thought the Green Chicken Curry, Broccoli Stir Fry, and Tartufo dessert were delicious. Restaurant is BYOB .

Big portions are excellent for family style dining. The curries are flavorful and the roti is crisp. Compared to the other southeast Asian restaurants in the area like Penang, Thai Basil wins in a knockout. 10/10 would eat again. 12/10 with rice.

Had Spring Rolls,Thai Salad, Ginger Chicken, Banana Rolls for dessert. Spring Rolls were decent. The Thai Salad looked nothing like the menu picture and tasted like water instead of the Peanut Sauce - skip entirely. The Ginger Chicken was very tastey. The Banana Rolls were okay. Both the Spring Rolls and Banana Rolls had one less roll, than described in... More
