Both are amazing and lend to having a wonderful dining experience. Amazing flavor in everything they brought out. The soups were super flavorful, the rice was excellent and added to complimenting our meal. Four of us ordered something different and passed around the entre's. Now...More

The first thing we noticed was that there was only 1 other person in the dining room....maybe they do a good take-out business. The second thing we noticed was that the place was really dated; it really could use a facelift. Also, the service was...More

Try the yellow curry and coconut soup. These dishes will keep you coming back for more. The staff are all friendly, the prices are great. The parking lot is small, but somehow it works.

We stopped here for lunch on the way to a meeting. I trust TripAdvisor to not lead me astray, and I don't think that's the case here, either. However, I was very disappointed with the service. I'll chalk it up as a one-off, but I'll...More

After reading other positive reviews, I decided to visit Basil House. It was great. It's a hole in the wall restaurant, a bit gloomy looking, but don't let that stop you. Though this is a Thai/Vietnamese restaurant, they have some other Asian cuisine favorites on...More
