Basil Thai Cuisine Restaurant Review: Wait time is taken in stride at this popular see-and-be-seen King Street landmark. The contemporary interior sets the mood with culturally suggestive imagery framed on the walls. Chef Suntorn Cherdchoongarm produces reasonably priced plates of spicy beef larb and curried duck; an array of fresh stir-fries are mildly spiced with more heat on request. Red, green and massaman curries with a choice of chicken, beef, shrimp or tofu are uniformly satisfying. The basil spring roll appetizer appears on virtually every table. A bowl of the coconut and citrus scented tom kha gai is large enough for two. Fried green tea ice cream is another must-have. Unfiltered pear saké is a high-quality beverage best enjoyed cold.
