Sweet Basil Thai (Berkeley)
1736 Solano Avenue, Berkeley, CA 94707
Thai cuisine is known for its aromatic and seductive ingredients, including our own favorite herb: sweet basil. It is also known for its complexity. Every dish created in a Thai chef's kitchen must contain three or more of the following flavors: hot, sweet, tangy, bitter and salty. However, all of these flavors have to balance each other and work in harmony, too. It takes a lot of skill and sensitivity to do it right. Lucky for you, here at Sweet Basil Thai we know Thai cooking inside and out.
When you step into Sweet Basil Thai for the first time, you will feel a sense of peace and serenity come over you. Our quiet and elegant décor serves as the perfect, simple backdrop for the delights to come.
Come visit us and enjoy one of the most delicious and authentic Thai meals in the Bay Area!
Begin with a glass of beer, wine or other beverage, then choose one of our tempting small plates to accompany it. Our fresh or fried spring rolls are a perennial favorite.
If you'd like a something fiery, try our Pan-Fried Turnip Cake, served with delicious Sriracha sauce. Our customers love our mix-and-match Meat and Veggie Skewers. Choose any combination of our tasty grilled chicken, pork, mushroom or eggplant skewers. Our peanut sauce gives them a special rich and complex flavor.
You might have trouble selecting a main plate—there is so much to love here at Sweet Basil Thai. Fans of meat might want to try our Drunken Beef, which is a delicious melange of stir-fried steak, veggies, lemongrass and basil. Our seafood options are always popular. We serve Goong Makahm, tossing our lightly fried prawns in a spicy tamarind glaze. Delish!
Vegetarians have plenty of choices at Sweet Basil Thai. Our veggie version of Drunken Beef is Drunken Tofu, with stir-fried bean cakes taking center stage. Or how about Grilled Vegetables in Green Curry? With many dishes you can adjust the spiciness to your liking. Just ask your server.
