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 wears sweet 'n' sour garlic sauce in the pla radprick entree ($18), thin rice noodles intertwine with egg and crushed peanuts in the classic pad thai ($11), and tom ka drowns hunger pangs in a rich broth of coconut milk and galangal with a choice of vegetables or chicken ($6 for a cup; $8 for a bowl).

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.

The food was the best Asian food I have ever had, there are so many good Asian and fusion restaurants but the cooks/chef at the Basil's in the brewery district made the most amazing vegan food for me and my mother. We started with the vegetable soup and the garden salad, the soup had a garlicy mushroom broth with so many fresh chopped vegetables, the salad had greens and vegetables with bean sprouts and tofu, that was topped with a Thai chili rice wine vinegar dressing. Then we finished with the Kee Mow that the server recommended half fried half boiled noodles and that was the best recommendation, the combination was so good.
