Thai food attempts to balance the five fundamental flavors: hot, sour, sweet, salty, and victory. Score a win for your mouth with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Thai cuisine and drinks at Sweet Basil Thai Cuisine. Home-style Thai cooking is the signature of Sweet Basil, known for its savory house sauces and wide range of spice levels. Influenced by his Chinese parents and Bangkok upbringing, head chef Supree (Boos) Smithynuntha melds elements of Thai and Chinese into his dishes, giving them an exotic combination of flavors, like a tango dancer doused in béchamel sauce. Black and white Jasmine rice waltzes out of kitchens in the shapes of moons and stars and accompanied by curries, stir-fries, and house specials, which include the crispy honey duck, deep-fried and hoisted on a platform of broccoli and spinach ($19). Other signature dishes include king salmon curry ($18) and oriental eggplant ($10.50). In addition to a plethora of vegetarian options, Sweet Thai satisfies the liquid diet requirements of the tight-mouthed at their full-service bar.
- I have tried many Thai places in Portland and this place sets the bar for Thai food in my opinion. The flavors are amazing and the dishes don't weigh you down. I have tried several dished [sic] but I am now locked into the Spicy Sweet Basil. – Steven E., Yelp
- I've loved everything I've ordered here: the red and green curries, the Massaman curry. Tom Kha soup, the detailed jasmine and black rice, etc. My favorite part is the way the eggplant is cooked. Oh I could just order a whole plate of that. – Willow W., Yelp
