We all ordered different dishes, and agreed it was all flavorful, fresh, and authentic. The server we had was lovely and very accommodating. The Thom Ka soup was particularly special! I would highly recommend this place and was glad it was recommended to us!

We're still finding all of the great restaurants in Manchester, and we just had the chance to try this one.

There are few Thai restaurants I consider good, but this one makes the list.

we started with Thai Iced Tea, and then moved on to Satay. We added some soups -- both Hot and Sour and Thom Kai. Both were great.

Then we moved to Pad Thai, Green curry noodles, and Spicy Basil. All were superb.

We'll go back again the next time we are there.

My friend and I like to take our dogs out together and train them around town. We decided to try and eat at Thai Basil. We sat on the Patio and they could watch coming and goings of other dogs while we had a wonderful lunch and watch patrons on the sidewalks and at the other tables around us. We were welcomed to eat and our dogs rested bedside the table. Food was fresh & wonderful and portions were large (enough for lunch the next day). It was nice to find a dog friendly outside patio in Manchester. Thank you Thai Basil. We will be back. PS our dogs are well behaved. We don't want to ruin it for others so please only take your well behaved best friend.

We had a terribile experience in this restaurant. We arrived and there was no room for us, but this was ok since we hadn't reserved. So we waited at the bar. Staff was so rude and unpleasent, and the cocktail we took was so anonymous that we dedided to change place.

We try not to give out many 5-star ratings, so we really believe this place merits this top designation. Their drinks are wonderful. Our group tried the ginger, elderflower, and lychee martinis, as well as the Old Fashioneds and Manhattansand some plum sake. Everything was excellent. Our table ordered the pot stickers. Shrimp,rolls, dumplings, sate, Thai fried rice. Drunken noodles, chicken Pad Thai, and the grilled salmon on rice with asparagus. It was all Outstanding. Spiciness is determined by 1 - 5 levels, you get to choose on almoat every dish. We like our food pretty spicy and a 4 was good enough for us. Our friends have been there twice before and have had consistently great food. The service was fantastic. So go have a great meal.
