What's your take on Thai Basil rest. in Richmond Hill?

Have you been there recently, does the food taste authentic ?
would you recommend to go there?

thank you

  1. I like it! Food is actually pretty good! Better than a lot of so-called authentic Thai restaurants down town!

    1. Great food and great service.

      1. Food is Great! Have been to Thailand, and the food at Thai Basil is pretty authentic. Enjoy!

        1. thank you, it made the list of places to eat at

          1. Eat there often. A little more upscale than the usual strip mail Thai. Lots of variety on the menu - good food.

            1. Don't like this place. Environment is good. However, I'm there for food mainly. I tried their phai thai and noodle. The only thing about them is oily. I will never go back.

              1. I didn't have a good meal there either. When i ordered the pad thai, my friends who go there frequently assured me that its authentic and not made with ketchup. Well.....the pad thai came out in a soggy broken noodle mess and it was made with ketchup. I will never go back there again.

                  There were two versions when I last ate there! One ketchup one none! May be they have changed chef?

                    I wasn't aware there were 2 versions of pad thai there. Since it was lunch time, i just ordered off the lunch menu. But thats usually the one my friends order too since Thai Basil is usually their office gathering lunch outing.

                    I had pad thai on the weekend, and I have to say that it was disappointing, broken, and red-coloured. Next time I'm there, I will see if I can find out what's going on. It would be a shame if they caved in to support the Canadian expectations of pad thai.
