Best Thai food in the city Jan 18, 2009
The Scene

Warm light, a bustling bar and arty photographs of Thailand make for a welcoming introduction to one of the most popular Thai restaurants in New York. The service is so gracious, you get the feeling your waiter would be mortally offended if he made a mistake.

The Food

Holy Basil's extensive, traditional Thai cuisine is several notches above its competitors. This is a good place to deviate from your standard pad Thai order: Try the melt-in-your-mouth steak salad, the mixed-seafood red curry with pineapple or any of the dishes containing the restaurant's namesake herb. Vegetarians will find plenty of fresh options, and everyone should finish with a bowl of fruit-infused rice pudding.

I personally recommend getting the Lychee Martini!
