What this place lacks in ambiance, it more than makes up for it with delicious food, good prices and a great location. We tried seven dishes, and they were very good.

This was a real treat. Delicious Thai and Japanese food at a very reasonable price. As vegetarians the emphasis on seafood at most restaurants gets a little challenging. It was a delight to find this spot so close to our hotel.

If you're like me, you love a great Thai restaurant. As most of you know all too well, the number of mediocre Thai spots FAR outweigh the real gems. Fortunately for St Pete Beach, Basil Leaf is one of those rare diamonds in the rough. Everything about our experience was spot on, and we tend to be fairly picky. My... More

I have been here many times and have given it a good review. Still love the Signature rolls, BUT last 2 visits have been soooo disappointing. One time our party of 6 received our entrees 45 minutes apart. This last visit, and it will be the last, the food all came together, but then nothing. No water, no clearing plates.... More

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.
