Michael will greet you at the counter. Unlike many “service” people, he will greet you with a genuine smile. Go there once or twice, and he may know your name and what you like to order too. Just beware that if you tell him you want it spicy, your tongue could melt from your face. It’ll be in a great way, but just know the reality that looms.
After you finishing ordering, find a seat, hang out, and talk about “those” 20 minutes. You know, the 20 minutes between the times you finish eating, grow your food baby, then get hungry again. (It’s Asian food, you know…) A bonus for some who may be dining alone: Seinfeld and The King of Queens (oh, the irony) reruns playing on the TV.
Now comes the good part…The Food. Pay attention to the presentation of the dish. (Though you will find him always to be fashionably dressed, we mean the food dish and not Michael. He does have quite a boot and scarf collection! But, we digress…) It is with their food that Thai Basils separates itself from other quick-service Asian restaurants. Your General Tso’s won’t have three carrots and a green pepper chunk. It will be loaded with strips of carrots, zucchini, and peppers. There’s always enough sauce that not one grain of rice will be eaten naked.
We suggest the Pad Thai. Order it “Thai Spicy,” if you’re feeling it. They grow their own peppers!
Easy on the wallet, easy to get to, no long wait and immense variety: Thai Basils is a great choice. So The Taste Buds – having two hands and four thumbs – give Thai Basils in Grandview, four thumbs up!
