Thai Basil - Richmond
Thai Basil features a lunch menu that lasts until 5pm, very rare compared to other restaurants in the Annex. Because of this, you can choose from several combinations of soup, salad, spring rolls and entrées at fabulous price points of around only $8. Selections from this lunch menu include green curry chicken, pad thai, sweet and sour chicken, garlic beef, and more. The starter soup included in lunch combos is to die for, with quite a spicy but unbelievably flavorful taste that will have your nose running. It is very difficult to find an authentic tasting soup like that one anywhere else in the city. The spring rolls are also astounding; being hot and flavorful, served with a sweet dipping sauce.
