About the restaurant
Our innovative presentation of Indian cuisine must be experienced in order to be appreciated. Intimate seating, contemporary Indian art and music, top shelf spirits, and a superb wine list are a few examples of the Copper experience.

Sevice was terrific, with suggestions for non-dairy and/or reduced spice options. Those entrees plus the main "traditional" entrees were all fantastic!

Basil Thai Cuisine is a North American-style Thai restaurant. The décor, washed in green and purple colors, offers traditional Thai hospitality. It has a long table arranged in the center of the dining room. Basil Thai Cuisine serves the solo visitors on this table to ensure that nobody eats alone. Other tables, with purple linens, are arranged in the dining room for groups of friends and families. A giant modern chandelier hangs in the middle of the ceiling, giving a feel of celebration and a look of ballroom to the décor. Basil Thai Cuisine serves traditional Thai foods in cultural platters. The crispy red curry duck is prepared with roasted duck. Its red curry is spicy and herby in flavor. The basil rolls are prepared with noodles cooked in basil sauce. The stuffing of grilled prawns adds a unique crunch. The bar serves Thai bubble tea.

We had a business dinner at Barristers and truly enjoyed it. Kayla our waitress was very lovely. The cocktails were delicious! The food was enjoyable. The only criticism: wine pours were on the short side. Not enough vegetables in the toasted rice dish. Beautiful space to relax in while dining…

About the restaurant
Taqueria Mal Pan is a modern Mexican experience. Our chef-driven menu is a combination of both the modern and classic Mexican kitchen. You’ll experience a menu with inspiration from Baja to Yucatan and everywhere in between. In step with the theme of our kitchen, the beverage program at Mal Pan is also inspired by the old and the new. Our back bar is filled with a curated list of artisan spirits from the US, Mexico, the Caribbean and beyond. All of our craft cocktails are concocted with housemade syrups, fresh squeezed juices, shrubs, bitters and instagram worthy garnishes

One of my favorite restaurants in Charlotte. The menu is creative as are the cocktails. The wine list is excellent and food always consistently great along with the service. Check out the next Mal Pan to open soon in Plaza Midwood soon!

About the restaurant
We invite you to celebrate refined Thai cuisine and an invigorating dining experience in the heart of Charleston, Mt Pleasant and Columbia, SC and Charlotte, NC.

Basil is the realization of the lifelong dream of Henry and Chai Eang, brothers who immigrated to the United States from turbulent 1970s Cambodia. From speaking not a word of English, to creating award-winning dining experiences throughout the Carolinas, the duo has married hard work with passion to bring authentic Thai cuisine to their new home.

Since opening the first Basil in Charleston to rave reviews, several trendy locations have followed over the last dozen years. Basil’s infectious atmosphere centers around a dynamic kitchen as the sound of heat to metal, blade to board and liquid to flame resonate throughout the restaurant. Each space stylishly appointed to reflect the culture and energy of the noteworthy Southern cities they inhabit.

Wonderful food and Michael was a great server. The basil wraps and satay were very good. One of the best pad thai and green curry we have ever had.
