Went on a whim....probably should have had a reservation, but we did get in on a Saturday night. Tasty foods. The Chef's specialties on the back with seafood and scallops were a hit with our group and the Pad Thai was good too.

The atmosphere was subtle and pleasant. The service was excellent and the food outstanding. A little on the pricey side but well worth it.

We've enjoyed going to Green Basil since it opened. It's great to find a local, family-owned restaurant where the owners and staff recognize us and where we always enjoy delicious food and great service. We especially enjoy the Pad Thai, red curry entree, spicy basil entree, and Green Basil duck. Best Cosmos in town!

This is class. This is like going to Las Vegas and eating at one of the posh Thai Restaurants like the one in the MGM Grand. Went here twice for dinner in January 2014.

First time, appetizers, excellent dishes, tea and desserts. Second time, all appetizers, bottle of wine and desserts.

Class place. Food is supreme. Wine was half-price special - got a bottle of Russian River Valley Chardonnay from California for $14 (reg, price $28). You would pay $12 a glass for this quality at most high-end restaurants. That half-price bottle (or glass at $4) was the "month special". They better hold that over into the next month. That alone is worth going to get.

Dinners were excellent. Pad Thai noodles, Ginger Pork, - all great. Desserts - good selection (you'll find something you like). Appetizers - spring rolls, pot stickers, combination platter - ALL excellent.

I was just impressed at the atmosphere of the place. CLASS. Had big band music that felt like you were more at an Italian place in Vegas (Louis Prima, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett - type music).

Dinner tab was NOT expensive at all and everything was first class.

I will be going back again and even thinking about holding a Rolls-Royce Owners club dinner here or even a book signing party. A hidden gem among a lot of "shopping center" and franchise places in Vernon Hills.

This is a MUST GO TO place.

Had two of them and then the appetizers..were just phenomenal . We were a group of ten and for some it was there first time . Food was ordered and service was flowing . Portions were great . Yellow curry is a must to have .. With lots of potatoes and shrimp!! Yummy
Definitely going back!
