I really wanted to love it. I found Thai food recently, a restaurant in Lexington SC (to die for). However... The service was very good, on time, friendly and helpful. The wontons were ok, couldn't taste what was inside. The Asian sea bass tasted very good. The rice was mildly warm when it came out. The crispy duck was not crispy. And that is the most recommended dish on the menu. The fat had not been rendered, and there was a lot of fatty tissue. It was tender and the sauce was delicious. I wouldn't recommend the fried ice cream, it's surrounded by a donut like thing that felt doughy, not fully cooked, and the ice cream was incredibly hard, although tasty, green tea favor. The music was so repetitive! It's kind cool in a bar/disco, here the continuous boom boom ended being annoying. The last straw was the women's bathroom, there are two stalls, but one doesn't lock, at all, unless you take a friend with you to pull it close. I am not sure I would recommend it when you consider the price.

We were drawn in for lunch by the great smells and friendly host...but this place was disappointing. Very limited wine and beer selection and the bartender had no clue about any of the drinks. We ordered the ginger chicken and it was strangely served with romaine lettuce as the vegetable, drenched in sauce (not like a little side salad). ????? Visually very unappealing. Also, they don't allow you to get fried rice as a side instead of brown or white rice. We have never seen that before. Overall the flavor was good, but some pieces of chicken were undercooked. And for the look and pricing of the place, I expected real chopsticks instead of the cheap wood ones.

We sat at the bar where we had great conversations with the new bartender - Minah. Chai, the owner also came over and explained the story behind Duck Pho. It is a newer item on the menu at Basil. Both soups were very yummy and hit the spot. I will have to say Im going to get the Duck Pho for myself next time. Make sure you come at dinner time if you are wanting to try the Duck Pho. We came back again - this time I had the Duck Pho and my friend had the Pad See Ew. When I first arrived the bartender, Minah recognized me from two week ago and asked if I wanted to try a new drink recipe she was working on called a Thai Tea Martini. I had two and they were chefs kiss. I highly recommend trying Basil out if you enjoy high end Thai food followed by impeccable service.

Great food, drinks, and service. That pineapple mojito, yo. Eating the fruit at the bottom was like taking a fruit shot when it absorbed all that alc lol. Highly recommend haha. We got the chicken green curry, tofu with noodles, and green tea cheesecake. The cheesecake was delicious, but I could care less about the fortune cookie bottom. We both thought the texture was off. We recommend the chef to just grind it finely versus it being chunky/coarse because it had an unsettling feel when you take a bite. Other than that, its a great place to meet friends or take a date. Music was soft pop, and decor was modern mixed with Thai aesthetics.
