Thai Basil - Boston
Set in a small, black-tiled basement on Newbury Street , Thai Basil is less expensive than its location would suggest. The menu includes standout spring rolls, flavorful tofu and spicy seafood. The service is fast but not rushed, and the space is intimate without being cramped. Step downstairs and enjoy delicious Thai food with a young, relaxed crowd in a romantic atmosphere.
Stumbled upon Thai Basil after strolling along Newbury in this cold November night. The restaurant were near empty and all four of us were briskly seated. We ordered the usual Thai staple: Tom Yam Goong, Pad Thai, Vegetarian Stir Fry, Pineapple Fried Rice and Mixed Seafood Basil in Spicy Gravy. We have a vegetarian among us, so we opted for seafood in all our orders. The food were quick to arrive. Being a regular Thai food fanatic in Thai Town, Hollywood, CA, the dishes were pretty good and the prices are generally reasonable for a Newbury location.
Service was mediocre. the waitstaff were not conversant. We were not offered any desserts. We would return for dinner again if we could get a parking space.
We actually stumbled upon this TB while walking down Newbury. We really enjoyed the food. The service was ok but they never asked us if we wanted dessert and we were almost rushed a bit. The lights kept flickering on and off which was annoying but all in all, the restaurant and food were equally good. I will go there again next time I am in Boston.
Thia Basil on Newbury St. Great service- fast and friendly- exceptionatly clean- wonderfully decorated. the dock is great as is the seafood- Ive eaten here a few times, never found anything that wasnt great- appitizers are all hand made and fresh every day. prices are within normal range. will give it a 10 in my book
The phuket noodles were awesome! Maybe just go ahead and skip the appetizers, 'cause the portions are pretty good and I wish I saved room for the fried ice cream or maybe the ginger ice cream! What a cheap eat for Newbury! The atmosphere could be great for a romantic date but also could be quite a relaxed atmosphere just for friends hanging out.
