I go here for lunch often. I personally like the flat noodles. They used to have more vegetables in it, but now it seems like broccoli is the main vegetable. But still, the flavor is great. (Maybe a little too much garlic for a lunch, when you have a meeting in the afternoon). The green curry is quite good, too.

Now they moved to the Murphy location, it is a lot smaller, so they make you wait longer.

I would definitely return to Thai Basil. The pineapple fried rice was delicious and came in a portion size which I think most would consider large to very large, depending on one's appetite. We also had the duck in the red curry sauce, which was good. The duck was tender; the vegetables in that dish were a bit scant but overall my experience here was positive.

I dont have a very good knowledge of authentic Thai food, but I like Thai basil the best among any other thai place. I am a vegetarian , and so I have very limited choice , but i like their red curry and also the pad thai which they offer. Their other brach which is a bit bigger than the one on Murphy has a better seating arrangement too.

I've always had good food here. I especially like the yellow curry with chicken and the sour soup (can't remember the name). It is a small restaurant and has a nice cozy feeling. The only downside is that you have to go next door into the bar to use the restroom.

This is probably my favorite Thai restaurant in the south bay area. It is a tiny place with maybe 10 tables. Because they are so small, you might have to wait a while.

I liked the food at this thai place. located in the heart of sunnyvale downtown. People were good. My manager took us to this place. The food was very tasty.

PROS: could get the food without any meat added
CONS: No vegeterian menu

This place serves very good thai food. If you dig spicy food, you will like this place. The place is in downtown sunnyvale and if you know the place you can find parking easily. The place is crowded during lunchtime and the tables are so close to each other that it feels a bit uncomfortable. However the food is worth the inconvienience. Its also a bit noisy. Since this place is centrally located I used to regularly meet with some of my friends here to catch up. It was so difficult to hear anything there that we moved to another place where the food isnt great but atleast we can talk and hear each other.

Pretty nice place to eat, I recemond eat at their Town and Country location. Its bigger, more nicer. I like their Red and Yellow Curries, Padthai is good also. Their Salmon Currie is the best, but its gets pricey. I recemond Tiger Chicken Roast also, it takes a little time but its nice.

Thai Basil is where I go for typical thai food. Great tasty food and also no wait time. I like Ice tea. I love eating Rice noodles and they make best. I would recommend people to go there and once try their food.

I have yet to order something here that I did not like. I've been coming to this restaurant for 4 years and have only found a couple other Thai restaurants in the South Bay that compares to the food here. This place has the best Basil Chicken Ive tasted. The service is friendly and timely. My only complaint is that I wish they were open more often (every time I come here during the weekend they are closed).

I went to the larger location for this restaurant, since I had a good experience at the smaller one (except the small part of it). I was dissapointed at the rather insipid fare. It took them almost 10 minutes to acknowledge our group's presence (although we were 10 in number and had reserved a table). The green curry seemed watery and the ingredients half-cooked. The meat dishes reminded one of a treasure hunt. One of our orders was mixed up, and the waitress "volunteered" to fix it.

This place is tiny--maybe a dozen tables in an historic storefront-- A trip back in time (but a bigger location a block away!) Simply the best Thai food you can find! Fresh and carefully prepared. Consistantly delicious! Attentive service. Meals that will impress your guests. Immaculate rest rooms with fresh flowers! And the friendliness that the Thai people are so famous for!

I loved the food here. I haven't found many good Thai restaurants in the Bay Area, but this one was good and very flavorful.

I will start off this review with a warning about MSG. If you are allergic, tell the kitchen you want them to hold off on the MSG. Otherwise, the food is well flavored and well priced. The restaurant, however, is a bit small. My date and I felt scrunched. They have great lunch specials. I would recommend getting almost anything with their special sauce.
