Whenever we want a night out for good Thai, we think of Basil Canteen. Don’t miss the kang kiow wan roti appetizer, the flavors are just wonderful!

Unbeatable food, great service, quick service. Always hot, fresh, and very consistent! Drive from North Bay to eat Thai food here. I've tried several other establishments closer and they cannot compete. Always the same quality and freshness. Try the middle dishes, and the spring rolls are wonderful.

Great spot for dinner if you are going to or coming from a show at the Oasis. Tasty food and pleasant, attentive staff. Many vegetarian options.

Food was great. Service was awful! The server was rude, didn’t check on us, will as us a question and just walk away leaving us at mid sentence. Finally she didn’t ask if we needed coffee or desert. She just brought the bill! And actually we wanted desert. It was just a bad experience. Very disappointed and I was embarrassed to have suggested this place.

Delicious food as always! Got to sit upstairs and everyone in our party enjoyed it! I do wish the restaurant had some sound proofing.

The food was really great, with a good price, especially for San Francisco. Unfortunately, it was a hot day and we had to sit upstairs, which made it a hot experience in so many ways ;) I recommend more fans or air conditioning.
