Thai Basil


2519 Durant Ave, Berkeley
Earn 3X Points

There’s a food court on Durant filled with cheap, late-night options mostly aimed at students who have yet to think about things like salt intake or eating vegetables. And among the myriad mediocre options there, you’ll find our favorite Thai restaurant in Berkeley: Thai Basil. It’s super casual, with servers who aren’t interested in questions or special requests, and the food is really good. The space is big, too, and it’s usually easy to get a seat, mostly because everyone is taking their food back to their dorm room. Get the pad thai or the basil fried rice.
