THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Thai Basil Restaurant Review

: You can smell the waft of spices, herbs and curry from the sidewalk. The small, sunny dining room is full of bright colors and big plants. There's a nice-sized sidewalk patio that gets covered and heated in winter. Start with coconut-chicken soup---spicy-hot but with a smooth finish. Move on to Thai barbecue chicken in a bright sweet-and-sour sauce or the fork-tender Thai eggplant. The Thai basil chicken is fragrantly smothered in quick-wokked basil leaves. Don't leave without trying the signature dish---Panang curry served in a clay pot over a little flame to keep it hot. Each dish comes with a perfectly-shaped pyramid of sticky rice. There's a nice beer and wine list.
