overall great, The atmosphere was awesome warm friendly service, my wine was great! I really liked my green curry but the reason why am not giving it five stars is because I tried my sisters beef salad and there was a little too much fish sauce, maybe none at all it could've been that it was pickled beef. Overall I... More

Nice atmosphere. Modern and upscale. Server was friendly, patient and attentive. Food was good but the shrimp-fried rice I ordered was pretty typical of what you could get on a good quality Chinese buffet. I liked the selection of heat/spices provided with with dish. Prices not bad for an uptown eatery. Looked forward to the popular fried wontons but was... More

This place is hard to find and a little expensive! The restaurant is extremely crowded and because of this kinda loud. Tables are like 18 inches from one another in an effort to accommodate as many as possible. If your looking to have a romantic date night, don't choose this place, only because it's not very private.

Since my favorite type of food is Thai, it is safe to assume I have strong expectations and that I'm a tough sell. I am also incredibly particular in the Meg Ryan "Sally" category. But this fantastic spot covers every base. The atmosphere is great, the service is impeccable, and food is....wait for it...as good as it gets! I have... More

Had a great lunch experience here while on a work trip. Quick service and great food. We opted to sit at the bar and our drink glasses never got below half full. The food was so good and there were multiple gluten-free options so I came back for dinner before flying out.

My sister and I visited this restaurant on our first night in the city. We were seated right away and all the servers were attentive and very friendly. I have given the food an average rating, everything else was great and I have no complaints.

We really enjoyed our dinner in Uptown Charlotte at the Basil Thai Restaurant. The food is priced a little higher than most Thai restaurants but everything tastes very fresh. We've been both times we visited and everything was very tasty and the service was good. It also has a modern decor that was appealing.

Visited with 2 business colleagues and came here twice. Good satay, and brilliant coconut soup. Mains were great, ginger chicken and pad thai, chicken noodles. Plenty of spice too and tasted really fresh. Japanese beer good too. The fried green tea ice cream is fantastic. Very nice ambience and friendly staff. I love thai food so will definitely come back... More

My wife and I went here this afternoon for a late lunch. There is no lunch menu, so you pay full boat even if it's one o'clock in the afternoon. Okay, we figured, it's a nice atmosphere, kinda chic, good uptown location. We'll give it a shot. I order the namesake plate, i.e. thai basil. For meat I had chicken.... More
