The ability to differentiate between red and green curry is the mark of a good Thai chef and a common tell among children faking colorblindness to skip school. Test your rods and cones with this Groupon.

On Basil’s vibrant Thai menu, a whole deep-fried tilapia fish wears sweet-and-sour garlic sauce in the pla radprick entree ($17); thin rice noodles intertwine with egg and crushed peanuts in their classic pad thai ($9.75); and tom ka ($5.25 for a cup; $7.95 for a bowl) drowns hunger pangs in a rich broth of coconut milk and galingale with a choice of vegetables or chicken.<p>

Our customers loved this deal last year, earning Basil a spot on Groupon’s Best of 2011 list.<p>

Basil Restaurant

When Basil Restaurant opened in 2009, the Columbus Dispatch reported on owner Rhome Ruanphae's inspiration: his mother’s string of successful Thai restaurants that she ran with her husband while he was growing up. Rhome borrowed his mother’s culinary mastery for Basil Restaurant and has now found enough success of his own that he's opened a second location in the Brewery District.

Like the chefs at the first location, the chefs at the new location create stir-fried crispy noodle dishes and a rainbow of curries, soups, salads, and appetizers that keep ravenous diners from eating their napkins. Eventually, bar food will be added to complement the sleek new space, which blends industrial and antique-style decor.

Glittering chandeliers suspended next to exposed ductwork illuminate slate-gray walls. Above the black-and-hardwood bar rests glowing letters that spell out "LOVE," and in a separate lounge space with tufted dove-gray couches, the word "SMILE" shines above a vintage mirror.

Customer Reviews

Second time at this location and it is my favorite! I love the dimly lit warm cozy interior design and delicious authentic Thai cuisines and signature cocktails. I feel like I am dining at a beautiful low-key restaurant somewhere in NYC when I come here ; )
