Basil Thai Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Basil Thai’s urban chic décor depends on sleek wood combined with lots of glass and mirrors. But it's the straight-up, well-prepared Thai food that secures the restaurant's customer loyalty. Starters include a meat-free egg roll and larb (choose chicken or beef) with generous amounts of mint, scallions and chili; several selections are marked "gluten free." House specialties range from the standard pad thai to 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 the noodle and rice options. In spring and summer, mango sticky rice makes a theme-worthy dessert, 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. Bottles of wine are half price on Sunday evenings. Service is efficient and friendly.
