Sweet Basil Thai Bistro Restaurant Review

: Located in a Western-themed shopping center in “Horsetown USA,” Sweet Basil Thai initially seems a bit out of place, but the locals have embraced this spot, thanks to its attractive prices and warm service. The menu is familiar, Americanized Thai cuisine, but well executed, and includes starters like chicken satay and a spicy beef salad. Yellow, green and panang curries are all very respectable, and pad thai appears to be delivered to nearly every table. Specialties include poached salmon in curry sauce, honey-glazed pork, and barbecued chicken in sweet chili sauce. Folks sometime finish with a little mango with sticky rice before heading out.
