I have been coming here for over 5 years and I truly enjoy it. Service is always great. Decor is very soothing to the eye. Food is always consistently good. Soda is brought out by cans. You can also ask for a spice rack.

This is one of my weekly "take out" restaurants. Food is excellent and service superb. I have had only one issue that I discussed with the owner. She listened and it was corrected immediately. Excellent customer service.Highly recommend this restaurant without hesitation!!

Love, love Thai food. Most of the food that I get is a mixture of meat and veggies. My favorite sauces have coconut milk, like the Panang curry chicken. Prices are reasonable and staff are friendly. I love the small, intimate atmosphere in this restaurant. Some of the staff have been there for years.

Waited an extra long time inside the restaurant once the 25 minutes had passed for pick up. "Sorry, waiting for the rice to cook" was the reason. What? Food was very bland and sauce watery. Will not be returning.

Used to love this place til i realized how terrible they were at using the services (grubhub) they offer. spent 47$ on an order that was wrong just to be told it was our drivers fault, so they would need us to pay the same amount for us to get our original order.

Terrible!! We will never eat here again!! We picked the food up (Red Curry) and it was wrapped up like dog food.. absolutely no flavor!! Then when I called about it they expected me to hurry back there before they closed in 10 minutes and said they would not refund it the next day. All around horrible experience!!

I've been coming here since it first opened, growing up down the round and now being in my 30s. I couldn't wait to come back since I just moved back to town.I ordered some appetizers too, so excited. Well-the salad rolls were gross tasting. They tasted like bitter pieces of sprouts which overpowered everything else. I've lived in 8 states now since Florida and I've had lots of good Thai salad rolls. I politely tasted them, strongly disliked them, and told the server I didn't care for them, much to my surprise since I love salad rolls.BUT. The manager came over to tell me, that the policy here, EVEN if something is gross or they deliver the wrong item, is never to take an item off the bill. I've never heard of this at a restaurant. I told her that I normally love them but they tasted off at this spot and she told me that it's not her job to let picky people sample food. I explained to her politely that I felt this was very poor service especially since I had been a regular for the better part of a decade and was going to review my experience honestly. She said she didn't care and I got on yelp to see how other people felt.I'll never come back again! After 16 plus years of patronage, you can forget me! And also after reading other reviews, I read one too many where people had whole cockroaches cooked into their meals.

I've been reading reviews and putting off trying this place... boy have I been missing out!! I got beef fried rice and he got pepper beef. Both dishes were well worth their $12.00. I couldn't eat all of my rice but I wanted to! It was a huge plate of food. I can't wait to try several dishes I saw on the menu. This restaurant is so CLEAN. I knew by the smell the moment I walked in... it's not dirty covered with scents to hide... it's just clean. The service was great. Two lovely young women waited on us in team fashion. This is definitely our go to for that asian flavor mood.

First time customer here. Located Downtown Largo found it online it's close work. I had to go, the Pad Thai with shrimp. Not bad it wasn't spicy at all is my only complaint so overall flavor was too sweet for my liking. The place is pretty inside and the server who helped me was extremely friendly and got me in and out of there very quickly. I will definitely try it again. If you enjoy Thai food give them a try.

Review №56

Good food but if they mess up your order they refuse to fix it so you're stuck with food you paid $20 for and can't eat. It was covered in pineapples and tomatoes when it wasn't supposed to and I am allergic to tomatoes. Not to mention I waited 45 minutes for this food. VERY unhappy. HORRIBLE service. I had ordered the same thing multiple times before this with no issue. They wouldn't even let me give it back and refund me for it. I guess now I have to find a homeless person to give it to or something so it doesn't get wasted. NEVER coming back to this location.

The service and business ethic in this place is awful. The waitress literally followed me to my car to demand that I give them a 20% tip. First of all, I tipped 15% because it took them almost 5 minutes to even acknowledge my family after we walked in the door, the waitresses were not friendly at all and behaved like it was an inconvenience to take our order, and it took over an hour to make the food. So needless to say, I wasn't very pleased with the service to begin with. Second of all, it is my right to tip based on the level of service received and a 15% tip is pretty standard, especially if the service was not good. This woman had the audacity to follow me to my car and demand a bigger tip, spouting something about charging me a "service charge" if I didn't increase the tip amount. She did all this while my 1 year old daughter was screaming in the back seat of my car (she was very tired and ready to go home) and she refused to leave until I increased the tip amount. I was so caught off guard by the whole ordeal and so frazzled with my crying child that I obliged just so I could hurry up and get my little one home. I'm just so appalled that a waitress would harass me, tip shame me, and threaten to charge me some made up service charge so for a couple extra dollars. What kind of work ethic is that? I really hope you reconsider before going to this restaurant.

My International women's meet-up decided to meet for dinner at this Thai spot when they found out the Mediterranean choice wasn't open at 5 pm on a Saturday. I wasn't very excited about the other menu so I was happy with the change of plans as I'm a Thai food lover.Note that this is Thai Basil II. Its location at 1700 West Bay creeps up on you quickly so if you drive too fast you'll miss it.Some of the members of our party ended up at the wrong location and had to be contacted to find us. So if you're going with a group, be sure to provide adequate directions.It was my first time at this restaurant. The customer service was excellent with someone greeting us warmly at the door & the waitress remembered my name in a party of 11. I was impressed. I usually go forred curry chicken but instead I asked them to create a dish with sauteed eggplant and drunken noodles. It was .I got to try my friend's curry pumpkin dish which was a hit. I'm going to order it next time. The service was slower for some in our party of 11 but mine was one of the dishes that arrived quickly. Overall it was a great dining experience over Easter weekend. It began to get crowded by the time we were getting ready to leave. I would definitely recommend it.

I come here quite often, the staff is always VERY attentive and the food is always delicious. I have yet to had a bad meal, or experience and i have been going roughly for 2 years. I brought my parents here for the first time a few days ago and they fell in love with it as well, and they are hard to please when it comes to new restaurants.

Order the lava chicken and you will not be dissatisfied. The bird is breaded and fried, delicately placed on vegetables and inundated with curry sauce, all while being served on a hot skillet.The service was on the slower side and mediocre but not to the point of frustration. I will be coming back.

Thai Basil II has an enchanting atmosphere and an excellent selection of delicious foods to choose from. Appetizers, soups, salads? All delicious. Pad Thai? Spot on and you can get it as spicy as you like. Sushi? Yes, please! My number 1 go to spot for sushi.The problem? Their service. You can tell they try and I'm assuming they've been understaffed, but it's hard to be forgiving of a restaurant that has slow service each time you visit. It has reached the point that we only order take out, which is a real shame.

My first time eating here, and I'm absolutely in love! I've eating at just about every other Thai restaurants in the area, and nothing can compared now. The sushi had real crab meat for less then fake krab at other places and the difference was undeniable. The taste and flavors of our dishes were amazing and so fresh. Our waitress Jane, was so nice and excellent at taking care of us. I will definitely be coming back and making this my new favorite Thai restaurant.

Review №88

DO NOT EAT HERE!This was the worst experience I have ever seen at a Thai restaurant. The lady clearly doesn't enjoy being a waitress. My group had a person who wasn't familiar pronouncing panang duck, our waitress rudely replied, "We only have what's on the menu." (First off, your job is not to be a smart ass. Not everyone knows the Thai menu and name of the dishes by heart. Your job is to help navigate the menu and realize people will mispronounce things. They don't need you to be rude.)As she was walking away, I had asked, "Excuse me, can I get an apple juice?" She hastily replied, "I will get to your order after I help this customer." Mind you, she wasn't talking with another customer yet and only one other empty table away. Does she really need to snap at me and go on a tangent for apple juice? Is that so hard to remember? It's your attitude, lady.At this point I tell my group, this lady is weird and I am ready to walk out but they are really hungry.Our group asked with every request with an "excuse me" or "please" and with "thank you."So what did we do to you? Nothing to deserve your horrible customer service.

Stopped in to TB2 for lunch during the week. Was very impressed with the decor. The exterior is not very charming, but the inside is ornately decorated. Service was fast and attentive. I ordered the sweet and sour chicken with brown rice. I received an egg roll as an appetizer (I guess it came with the meal), which was nicely crunchy and delicious. I received a decent helping of food that I very much enjoyed. The veggies were fresh and cooked but crunchy, the pineapple was browned to perfection, the chicken was tender and juicy, and the brown rice....ahhh, so delicious. Tasted more like vanilla rice, but maybe that was the sauce or something. My friend had the curry duck and was also very pleased. I had enough food for leftovers the next day too. Very much worth the trip and I would highly recommend. Great selection of menu items; very clean restaurant. Don't let the exterior fool you!

My wife and I recently moved near this restaurant. After one visit we're hooked. All the staff are friendly, courteous, with the appropriate level of humor.How about the food, well... it's just a little bit AWESOME. Never a bad dish. This is the only Thai place I've ever ordered something different.In short, if you're in the county and like Thai cuisine, stop here!

The Massaman Curry is exceptional. Wonderful dining experience, and very honest staff. I left my phone-wallet combo under the table and didn't realize it until after hours. I called the next day when they opened and they had found it. When I went in to pick it up they asked several questions to identify that I was the true owner of the phone. Not a dollar of my cash was missing and all my cards were exactly as I left them. I would highly recommend this authentic and honest place!
