Basil Thai Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Glass and mirror accents set off sleek wood shaping Basil Thai’s urban chic décor. But it's the straight-up, well-prepared Thai food that keeps diners coming back. Starters, several of which are marked "gluten free," include a meat-free egg roll and larb (choose chicken or beef) with generous amounts of mint, scallions and chili. House specialties range from pad thai to the three-flavored fish: a deep-fried whole fish topped with three-flavor sauce. Executive chef Suntorn Cherdchoongarm, a native of Thailand, has traveled and cooked his way around the globe --- his signature dish is crispy red curry duck. Traditional pad see ew is among noodle and rice items. In spring and summer, mango sticky rice is on the dessert menu while fried green tea ice cream is offered year-round. The bar is a welcoming place for post-work cocktails, but wines by the glass are equally winning. Service is efficient and friendly.
