Terrible. I could make the dish with rice noodles and thai sauce. No veggies no flavour....so basic. Good if you are a moron!

Great atmosphere but average food. The chicken or beef appetizer sticks were quite good though. I found that coconut cream/coconut milk was over used to the point that many dishes tasted far too similar. The curries were good but I would prefer more variance between the flavour of the dishes. Stay away from the BBQ pork appetizer... I think it... More

We arrived to Thai Basil about 8:30-9:00pm and it was packed! Luckily we were seated right away at a two person table.It took a little bit (approx 15-20mins) for our server to see us at all; she quickly took our order of chicken pad thai and a coconut mojito for myself and sweet and sour chicken with rice and a...

I went there the first time today. We tried the lunch specials and enjoyed the two selections. The environment was very nice as was the service.

Title says it all! I am a regular here so I can tell you that service can swing (they occasionally have days where they are way understaffed, but are always friendly and helpful), also try to avoid takeout. We've ordered a few times and the taste/portioning seems off. Otherwise, 5/5!

visiting friends in Toronto area who are from Thailand. They took us here and it was our first experience with Thai food. It was delicious. Very much enjoyed the variety of flavors and spices. My husband has a sensitive stomach and they adjusted the spices so that they were not to hot for him-he had no problem, in fact ordered... More

Do not judge the book by its cover. We looked at the menu posted on the window, thinking the prices are okay. We walked in and saw the decor, and thought, "uh oh"... Decor is nice, but we wanted to find authentic Thai food, not westernized fancy upscale Thai. We ordered a curry and a Pad Thai. Curry is good,... More

We ordered for a family get together last night but two of us (I'm one of the two) are gluten intolerant. Knowing that Thai restaurants can usually accommodate gluten free requests better than Chinese ones for example, my family member who ordered mentioned that we had a few gluten intolerant eaters and if there was a way to make a...

We've been here before and looked forward to another pleasant meal. The noodle bowls are spicy and nippy, but eh taste does not last very long....too bad. Our meals were delicious and served expeditiously by friendly servers.
