I visited this wonderful restaurant with my girlfriends on a vacation to St. Pete Beach. We each tried something different and all loved our food. The staff were friendly and helpful with suggestions. Large glasses of wine and reasonable prices. I would definitely go here again

We either eat here or get takeout every time we visit St Pete beach. Food is consistently good quality.

We were camping at Fort Desoto and this is the closest Thai Restaurant to the campground. We went on a Saturday evening. The place for very quiet. It smelled quite musty inside but that's probably because it's a place on the beach. Overall our booth seat was torn and the place seemed a bit dated. Ordered Iced Tea to drink... More

We had carryout from the Basil Leaf last night. We both enjoyed potstickers and shrimp stuffed dumplings. We both also had pad Thai for our main dish. The flavors were good. The portions were enormous, but the woman who took the order over the phone simply couldn't get it right. We wanted one order with beef and one with pork.... More

Since moving to St Pete Beach 2 years ago I have been to many Thai restaurants and Basil Leaf is the best. It's not great, because they don't use only organic but it's good tasting, clean and inexpensive.

Went to Basil Thai on our last night in St Pete, it was by far the best place we had eaten at while on vacation. Despite the rain from Tropical Depression 9, Chai was an excellent host. He even chased us down the street as we were walking to return our cell phone! The food was fantastic! Can't wait to... More

Recently came for a second visit with my Aunt who lives on the beach. The decor isn't trendy or up-and-coming, but comfortable. It has never been overly busy when we come either. I was impressed, again with the appearance and taste of the sushi. The menu also offers various choices (some seem appropriate for sharing with a large group). I... More

Daughter loves Thai food and having sushi too was a plus. They enjoyed the sushi sampler. We all shared the pad Thai with shrimp, the pork with fresh basil sauce, and the favorite Massaman curry.
