The menu unfolds to reveal starters of char-grilled chicken satay ($6) and bowls of tom-kha-gai—a coconut-broth soup with chicken, galangal, lemongrass, and lime juice ($5). Plates of pineapple fried rice feature a combination of raisins, cashews, garlic, and veggies ($15), and the chef's specialty roasted crispy duck is topped with housemade teriyaki sauce, fresh ginger, and steamed vegetables ($18).
Sweet Basil Thai House
Burgundy booths and dark-clothed tables give Sweet Basil Thai House's spacious dining room an alluring mystique, which sets the scene for the artful plating of classic Thai dishes presented by native-born chefs. Their specialties run from favorites such as pad thai and pineapple fried rice to red-curry duck, which they roast to crisp before simmering it with pineapple and vegetables. While these dishes are prepared, the wait staff moves about the tables, dropping off glasses of Thai iced tea and fresh coconut juice or willing corks to leap from bottles of wine that diners brought with them.
