The food is really great. We ordered a lot of vegetarian versions of the dishes and were not disappointed. The chicken massaman curry was great. Our server was very attentive and always smiling [forgot his name :-(]. We were 6 adults and 3 kids during...More

We had a really enjoyable dinner at Basil. Because the restaurant does not take reservations, we made a point of arriving early. To our surprise, our arrival at 5:30 allowed us to take advantage of happy hour prices (5 to 7pm) for our drinks and...More

Very friendly staff, took great care of us. We ate here with our three young daughters who loved the food, full of flavor but we were able to avoid anything too spicy. If this was a local Thai we'd be here quite often.

We ate here twice during our visit to Charleston. The thai food here is quite authentic and there are many options. Definitely worth a visit

Delicious Thai food! Basil rolls, wonton soup, vegetable medley with chicken. Food is outstanding! Service was good our first visit & really poor the second visit - waitress was more interested in serving the large group behind us. Highly recommend!

My wife and I were famished coming from visiting the Tall Ships 2017 and a quick shower from our hotel. Parking our car in a parking garage and walked along King St. in Charleston, we kind of hope to find a good place for dinner....More

Thoroughly enjoyed a Sunday early evening dinner. Delicious cocktails (during Happy Hour), and delicious food with attentive service. Ample portions, left us satisfied. But not so much that, as visitors, we would feel guilty not taking a doggie bag.

It depends on the age of the child. While we had none with us and I didn't look for high chairs or booster seats, I would say they would enjoy the hustle and bustle. The difficulty would be bringing an infant because the... More
