The only true legit Thai food in town. I traveled extensively to Thailand & tried Thai food around the country, this place got each dish right! And more! Seriously! I feel every dish I ordered is legitimately right on point. Nice ambiance, friendly wait staffs & nice outdoor patio area. Good experience each time! Thank you! More...

Another beautiful meal at Basil! Our server Paul made great recommendations and the Red Curry did not disappoint! (Try adding broccoli, cashews, pineapple!) Looking forward to the coconut soup next visit, and still savoring the memory of the Chef’s special duck last visit. Clean, lovely, great bar, low key ambience, and superb service. And the price point is nice! More...

Delicious food and a good selection of locals on tap. We got the wontons, Green Curry with Chicken and the Red Curry Duck (pictured). The duck was a little chewy and fatty, but the flavors of the curry overall were exceptional! Cheesecake for the finish was perfect! More...

I am here in Ballantyne for an assignment for few weeks as I am from Singapore where Thai food is prevalent and also going to bangkok every now, must say the food here is close to authentic. I have tried pad thai or tom yum in other "Asian" restaurant, too salty or oily for me. I always eat here around twice a week for my cravings for my local asian taste. I see some reviews that sauce are watered down or less taste. This is because asian cuisine are more on the taste of the produce rather than the sauce itself. Overall, i like the ambiance, the food is so very good and just right for the pricing. Now let me order that Tom Yum Goong again.. :) More...

Came here with my girlfriends while on a trip to Charleston because of my love for thai food. Basil did not disappoint at all. Their chicken satay was amazing as was their crab Rangoon like appetizer. Their drunken noodle was fantastic which is what I always judge Thai food on (and I've tried well over 50 different Thai restaurants). The portion was huge, flavor and spice on par, and chicken cooked perfectly. All of my friends enjoyed their dishes as well. We stayed at the restaurant for 3 hours on a Saturday evening enjoying our food and wine...the restaurant did not have an issue with this. I would return again in a heartbeat! More...

After dining here with my friend, I recommended this place to my mom who immediately responded, "Eww sound like 'hot and spicy' to me." Well, let me be the first to tell ALL of you, the Queen is more than just a little kick. We had the Crawfish Scampi at the recommendation of the couple at the next table and... oh my lord! It was so good we ate it in the tiniest morsels in order to make it last thru the entire dinner. The etouffee is authentic to the region, fried platter was seasoned to perfection. The flavors in general honestly made you think of a real New Orleans eatery. If you know what that means, please try this place out. If you don't, COME TRY THIS PLACE OUT!!! PS... Valet parking +... Whiskey Cocktail menu ++... Waitstaff +++... Atmosphere... You get the point. More...

You can get Thai food anywhere, but if you want GOOOOOOOOD Thai food you gotta check out Basil. Their food is a notch above the Thai you’ve been eating. It’s so fresh, it’s delicious, it’s the Thai food you’ve been craving. When I’m downtown and looking for Thai there’s no other option. More...

My wife and I decided to try out Basil Thai tonight. It was an absolutely wonderful expierence!! The food was great and the staff was so friendly, especially the manager Brian. After seating us he was interested to learn we were in Charlotte on a weekend date while our four children were with their grandparents back in SC. He informed us there was a Basil in Greenville as well so we will definitely be checking that one out as well!! Thanks to Brian and his team on making a rare weekend without kids such a wonderful expierence!! By the way... the fried banana dessert and Lemongrass bar were both amazing!! More...

My family and had the pleasure of eating here one late night whilst on vacation the end of last month. We told ourselves how silly we were for eating Thai while at the beach. Boy were we wrong. Everything was excellent starting from the patient hostesses (we had a few young ones clearly not meant for this upscale eatery). Our waitress gave perfect descriptions and no one at our table was left unsatisfied. The atmosphere was tasteful and classy. The environment was relaxing, wholesome, and the owner even stopped by our table to ask us how everything was. Overall I was highly pleased, wish I lived closer. Food was divine. More...

Went to Basil while in town on vacation on a Saturday evening. Given that we showed up shortly after they opened, we were immediately seated. Our waitress was very polite, attentive, and informative (the stuffed shrimp appetizer was fantastic). Our food was brought out in a timely manner and was delicious (two of us got the pad thai and the other the cashew chicken). All in all, definitely worth a trip if you're in the mood for Thai.

Delicious! We came here for our last night of vacation for our "fancy friends dinner" and really enjoyed it. Service was quick and food is delicious. The waiters are really good at walking you through the menu and answering any questions. They also make sure you get the right amount of spice for your dish and are super good at working with your dietary restrictions. Water is refilled constantly. Portion sizes are large, but not necessarily enough for two. It was rather pricy for noodles and vegetables, but all 8 people I was with enjoyed their meals. More...

Got seated when my party arrived in a private area where they were set up for two other large parties. Food was good but not truly exceptional. Service was good considering at one point they had two waiters covering three large parties with a little help from other staff. Try the red curry with chicken and try it hot......but not Thai hot unless you can handle really spicy food. Will go back again. More...

Have been here multiple times, always a fantastic experience. Best Thai food around and the service is top notch. Laura is a great waitress and on top of her game, never had to wait for anything. The manager truly cares about his restaurant. We ordered the stuffed shrimp as an app and pad Thai as a meal (both amazing). Each time he checked on us he treated us personally about how our meals were using them by name instead of the generic “how is everything?”. He even gave us the suggestion to try the stuffed shrimp without the sauce which was amazing by itself. Coming from previously working in this industry I would hands down say this place is one of the best! More...

Had the red curry with shrimp. Best I've ever tasted. My wife had an incomparable basil shrimp and the others pad thai also excellent. Basil spring rolls were average but dipping sauce was just the right complex mix of flavors. Would recommend it without hesitation. A little pricey but rent ain't cheap downtown. More...

Had the fish with three sauces. Very, very good. They serve the whole flounder, fried, with a very complimentary sauce (I believe the 'three sauces' are combined). It was pricey at $30, but I was very impressed. Followed up with the fried bean ice cream. It was good, but the shell it was fried in was a bit much. It was hard and had extra dough in random places on the inside which resulted in bites of only dough. Ended with an espresso, which was as good as you'd expect from a Thai restaurant, not great, but good enough. More...

First, let me start by saying that the resturant's atmosphere was amazing! I already had great company but the vibe was so laid back and friendly! Now, the food......was AMAZING! I ordered the red curry chicken w/brown rice. This was my first experience at any thai food resturant and let me say, I was extremely impressed. Not only was the food delicious and the people friendly, the resturant itself was very aesthetically pleasing. I would recommend this for everyone. More...

Over the years I have eaten at so many Thai restaurants and I have never had Thai food as good as what I got in San Francisco many years ago, until this weekend! I have eaten there twice now this week while I've been in Charlotte. Both times I got the fresh Basil rolls and the shrimp Pad Thai and it was excellent! When I asked for heat I got medium and it was perfect! Usually you get it so hot it's not enjoyable or no hot at all and it's boring and bland, but not here! It was perfect with a nice hint of lime and perfect blend of spice. I loved the atmosphere and the staff was outstanding from seating you to making sure you had everything you need. I highly recommend this restaurant. More...

I like all kinds of Thai food. But, sometimes I just have simpler tastes. I've narrowed all Thai food down to basically 2 dishes: (1) Massaman Curry, and (2) I wish this was Massaman Curry. So, I ordered the Massaman curry at this establishment, and it did not disappoint. Fresh ingredients, and a delicious sauce, and I was all set. Friendly servers and prompt service. Thank you!

The food was delicious, tasty, and healthy. The best thai food out there.It was nice seating and comfortable. The dessert was delicious as well. We had a large piece for two chocolate hazelnut cake and coconut ice cream. Wow ! That was very tasty. I had chicken with fried noodles, cashews, carrots, seeweed, etc with a delicious sauce to top it off. The only drawback is that the lighting was too dark for us. You could not see the menu without a flashlight and this was around 7 pm.Otherwise, an excellent experience Our server was excellent. We had enough to take home. The plates ate huge. The side order if chicken fried rice is great too. We loved it! More...

I used to work nectdoor to Basil and ate hete about once per week. I sm also a geek for pad thai and have tried (almost) every pad thai in Charleston.Let's get right to the food - amazing. I would say that Basil downtown has my favorite pad thai, with only one other restaurant coming in a close second because of their noodles. The pad thai at Basil just has so much flavor packed into the small dish, but what I think sets them apart is the added veggies which makes the dish a bit lighter than others and with more texture. My pro tip - if you like really hot food you can order your pad thai up to "triple thai hot" even though your waiter may only tell you that "thai hot" is the hottest.Also, do not miss the coconut chicken soup. When we have friends or family in town this is a go-to dish to impress them. My third favorite is their Basil duck which you can get in a half-portion for lunch.Beyond the food I have always had great service. Just be aware that they do not take reservations and can get quite busy in the evenings, so you may need to be patient getting a table. Thankfully, they also have outdoor seating with the right weather. Their outdoir seating is quite a treat too. Even without the great food and service you will enjoy the rare outdoor seating right on King Street!Notable mention, they have a full bar including a very small sake selection. Also, "to go" orders are welcome - trust me on that I've had more than a few. More...

Got veggie fried rice & enjoyed it ! It had so much flavor, most riced dishes I have to add sauce, this didn’t need anything added to it ! I felt super healthy when I left.
