I'm pretty sure you can't order the wrong thing here. Highly recommend pad thai noodle, green curry, spicy beef salad and steamed dumplings. I have to go back to try more yummy dishes!

We ate here on a family trip. The food was fantastic. We ate outside, which was pleasant. We had meat eaters and a vegetarian in our party and everyone was pleased with their meal. If you likeThai food, this is for you.

We were seated promptly. Our water was filled timely. Food was served within a short wait. Egg rolls were tiny, but hot, with little flavor. The Vegetable delight was totally tasteless with watery broth. The other dish was Pad Prik which was very good (almost...More

It seems strange to say my favorite meal in Charleston was not Southern food, but Thai. Basil really knocked it out of the park. We were seated right away. My sister ordered Pad Thai and I ordered the Pad Kee Mao. Food was prepared right...More
