Basil polarizes everyone into extremes–you either swear by it or hate it. At least thats how I view it. I have heard people complain that they have a special Thai place in the Northeast that is so much better. I’ve heard big city folk say that Basil is the best. Though it is a bit trendy and overpriced, I think Basil is basically very good. Try the house specialties (whole fried flounder, fried half duck, stir-fried tilapia) and you will find something interesting and delicious. Who cares about spring rolls…it’s the unique dishes that make a place worthwile.
