Thai Basil

Although Thai Basil has many different locations to choose from around the Valley, the Tempe incarnation off University Drive and Farmer Avenue downtown is our favorite. Fast and friendly service makes it an ideal spot to grab lunch on a break between classes or from work. The silver noodle soup is our go-to dish because the light, but flavorful broth with rice noodles and tons of veggies is enough to fill us up, but not slow us down. The papaya salad is also a great option for calorie-counters with a delicious citrusy dressing and shrimp. Read our review.
