Basil's Charleston location continues the work of the flagship North Carolina location, showcasing tasty Thai to visitors of the city's Historic Downtown district. Basil's menu will be familiar to Thai aficionados although a few standouts such as the Basil Duck and Pad Thai keep locals coming back regularly. There are a number of vegetarian and gluten-free dishes on offer, although there's an informal consensus that the meat dishes are the main attraction. Speaking of attractions, the glass-walled kitchen allows you to see the Thai cook brigade creating your meal before your eyes. The price is a bit higher than your typical hole-in-the-wall Thai joint, although the availability of more exotic fare, and authentic fare at that, in Charleston comes with a premium. A reliable option in a convenient location, Basil Thai is still one of the most recommended Asian options in the area.
