Thai food attempts to balance the five fundamental flavors: bitter, 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 Thai Basil Restaurant in Greenwich.
Delighting food-loving locals, Thai Basil serves up freshly prepared flights of flavor that sport the spicy signifiers of authentic Thai cuisine. Cuisine classicists can sample the drunken noodles ($10/$12) mixed with any number of mouthwatering meats and tofus, or the pad thai, one of Thailand's most famous dishes, appetizingly augmented with stir-fried fettuccini noodles and steamed bliss ($10/$12). Adventurous patrons may pilot themselves toward the crispy red snapper ($20) or seafood jambalaya ($21), in which the beastly fire of choochee sauce courts the company of beauteous lobster and scallops made Cajun-style.
The kitchen is prepared for all manner of health-related requests, so diners looking to nosh on gluten-free, peanut-free, matter-free, or extremely fetching preparations of their favorite dishes can do so in delight. For of-age guests and experimenting fish, a mellow selection of six exotic beers is available, including Vietnam's 33 beer and Japan's Kirin Light ($5). Assorted wine and sake are primed for speedy service, and sodas are offered for younger lovers of all things yummy. Thai Basil is located in the heart of downtown Greenwich near a wealth of shops and across from a cinema, making it an ideal stop during a day of leisurely browsing or before taking in a movie.
