We went here as a family and there was something for everyone. Loads of vegetarian and gluten free options as well as fantastic spicy beef noodle and chicken panang curry. Service was attentive despite how busy it was. Delicious!

There aren't too many nom-junk/fast food places to eat in Paso Robles that we could find and took pot luck on this Thai restaurant, but it was excellent. The portions are big, but boxes are provided to take home, if needed. There were four of us and we shared the combi-platter for starters. It was delicious with delicate flavours and... More

We stopped here for dinner while meandering through Paso Robles Square and it was crowded but delicious. I would definitely eat hear again and would definitely have the Pad Thai again. Then stop by Hatch for a custom ice cream sandwich for dessert.

I always make it a point to stop at Basil Thai every time I'm in Paso and have never had a bad meal. This time I tried something different and ordered ginger, shiitake and greens. I was not disappointed! The meal was gingery, vegetables crispy and seasoned perfectly. Don't forget to order mango sticky rice. If they're out order the... More

I have been going to Thailand regularly for the past 20 years. Basil has very good high quality food but for me it is not authentic enough for my taste. I much prefer Thai Classic down the street.

I haven't been to Thailand, but I have had curry that would knock your socks off. Regrettably, Basil Thai will keep your socks on. I ordered the yellow curry thinking I was ordering a curry with potato and onion nothing more and nothing less. What was presented to me was a "yellow" curry with beef, carrot, onion and potato in...

I loved this place. It looks really small from the outside but the place is really big. The food was really good. It's a thai fusion restaurant. I cannot remember what we ordered I just remember that they have really good food and enjoyed their chicken basil stir fry! it's my favorite. They also have really good curry! No need... More

had a lovely meal here and would recommend the crying tiger dish. We have been to Thailand several times and would say it is not entirely typical of Thai food eaten there. However we liked the contemporary twist they achieve and would highly recommend this restaurant. For dessert we had the coconut creme brûlée which was out of this world.... More
