This is probably the best Thai restaurant in East Tennessee. Maybe the whole state. If you haven’t visited yet, it is time to put on your Thai and go to Thai Basil in Sevierville.
I recently met friends for lunch as it seems to be our favorite gathering place for that. Here are some of our best recommendations. Enjoy!
This is something to be proud of.
(Overlook the glare.) Others recommend Thai Basil as well.
First, here is a link to their lunch menu on the website. http://www.thaibasiltn.com/lunch.html
For lunch, you can order your choice of a starter, main dish, protein, and level of spiciness. Go with mild if you can’t stand much ‘heat.’
Start with the lemongrass or coconut soup. I came last winter when I wasn’t feeling well and it really helped a lot.
Spring roll bliss.
I always order Pad Woonsen with tofu. The noodles are bean thread noodles and very low carb. It is always an explosion of flavors.
My friend ordered pork with garlic black pepper.
I like the decor and usually sense a nice ‘zen’ feeling while dining here.
The pictures on the wall make you want to travel to Thailand soon.
The waitstaff are excellent. They will give you a warm greeting and seat you immediately, if a table is available. The staff are quick and efficient. The food always seems fresh and cooked perfectly. I recommend getting a mild degree of hotness. Medium is too much for me!
I could write more, but it is time for lunch! If you are a tourist visiting the area, Thai Basil is a local secret. Take a look if you like this kind of feel. Thai Basil is an exotic way to get out and about in Sevierville.
