Thai fare attempts to balance the five fundamental flavors: bitter, sour, sweet, salty, and victory. Score a win for your mouth with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of authentic Thai cuisine from Sweet Basil Thai House in Mattydale.
The skilled chef at Sweet Basil Thai House, who has 30 years of cooking experience, custom-fits dishes to palates with a menu of made-to-order Thai cuisine that includes vegetarian and gluten-free options. Set sail for an epicurean expedition with thai spring rolls served in succulent plum sauce ($5), or dive fork-first in one of four fresh salads that actively improve vegetable-employment rates ($6–$11). In a plate of Kao Ob Poln-La-Mai, a symphony of gourmet thai sausage, roasted cashews, and mixed fruit rests atop a bed of imported jasmine rice, accompanied by a choice of chicken or shrimp ($15). A mild chili paste sautéed with fresh garlic, onion, and basil forms the base of the spicy prik pao sauce ($12), which encircles beef, chicken, pork or vegetables in a piquant embrace. The boneless red-curry duck––roasted and crowned with sautéed pineapple, lychee nut, and the chef's red-curry sauce––quells tummy grumbles before they startle nearby grizzly bears ($18).
Diners can recede into the plush, maroon booths in Sweet Basil's spacious dining room as they enjoy their meals, or they can order their food for delivery or carryout.
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.
