- Basil Thai CuisineFirst to ReviewJul 05, 2012
My favorite restaurant. Ever. Not just in Charleston. Not just for Thai food. No, period, in the world. Why?
Basil literally meets everything and more you could ask for in a restaurant.
Location: Basil sits on one of Charleston's most popular streets for shopping, nightlife, and tourism. So, for that reason alone, before or after having a bite, there is plenty to do next door either way you walk.
Atmosphere: The inside and outside of Basil completes a perfectly intimate mix for great friends, great romance, or great family. There's usually a wait but not for too long, and you'll be plenty happy just standing around outside in the meantime. I don't know what it is, the placement of the tables, the oil lamps, the coloring, it's all just right.
The food: The food here is delicious, every single person I have taken here has loved what they had. They tend to use fresh ingredients and also make a mean cocktail. I believe the menu changes but feel free to try an order a Mojito with fresh mint and of course, Basil.
