We had dinner here at the recommendation of our son who lives in Palm Desert. El Basil is tucked in a shopping strip between El Paseo and 111.

Service was excellent in an intimate, comfortable setting. The moderately priced food arrived quickly and was delicious. The orange chicken I had was the best I've ever eaten. Quantities were ample enough for us to take some home to enjoy again later.

We will definitely eat here again when in the area.

Had dinner recently with a friend. We shared the shrimp and scallop appetizer which had two shrimps and one scallop each on 3 skewers. It took almost 15 minutes to get them and when they did arrive they were cold. We sent them back and when we got them again they were warm and did have a nice sauce. The shrimp were on the very small side and for $13.95 not something I would order again. My friend had the Orange chicken and I had the Honey Duck served over Chinese brocolli. A large bowl of white rice was served on the side. The entrees were good. Major complaint would be the slow service.

We went for an early dinner. The restaurant is pleasant, peaceful and clean. Seats are very comfortable! The food was excellent and very nicely flavored. I had the fish soup, and there was nice amount of good quality fish and a nice variety. Excellent. My companion had a chicken dish, and it was also excellent. Prices are reasonable for the portions, and service was very nice. .

Tried this small Asian fusion restaurant for lunch and was not disappointed! From the Asian decor to the fabulous food and service, we thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The yellow curry with a yummy peanut/coconut/curry flavor will leave you craving for more! The eggplant dish was scrumptious! Mai Tai's also good and not too strong for lunch. Recommend this to anyone that enjoys uniquely flavored food!

We tried Basil for the first time on Memorial Day for lunch. The lunch menu was inviting with $10 entrees including soup. The cashew chicken with fried rice was a real winner. This is perhaps the best Southeast Asian food that we have had in the valley.
