I ate at Basil for dinner yesterday. I had the red curry which was excellent. In addition, I tried the stuffed shrimp which were fried perfectly. I highly recommend the red Curry. There was no wait and the service was great.
I think that juice is right. Basil did the same thing to me. I also think that people should lay off him. HE has every right to express his own opinion.
I don't know Juice, maybe look at your first post where you were bitching about the wait...
Let me refresh your memory:
"Arrive early, wait 2 hours, watch people get sat all around you even though they see you waiting, then complain, and lastly, after 2 exhaustive hours, try and find somewhere else to dine on a Friday night without a reservation"
Goose. Bad attitude yet again. Why don't you try cooking? It's as easy as reading. Oh, hold on, you might have to wait for an hour or two for your meal to cook. Juice no one will ever trust your posts because all you do is complain. I feel sorry for anyone who ever has to server you. Your food probably gets spit in half the time you go out. Burn!
ticket 3477, I was by no means pouting, Gracie, how would you have any idea how long I waited? are you me? Chalo, bad attitude, no, not at all. I live in Charleston and eat out five nights a week, I am well aware of the wait on a friday night, however, Basil does not take reservations, so I waited, simple as that. I don't drink, so why would I wait at a bar, I'm just saying 2 hours to be ignored is insulting, rude and unacceptable, so I do not reccomend Basil
Basil is my favorite restaurant in Charleston. It is worth the wait for the food. And FYI... you can not make reservations at Basil but they call your cell phone when your tables ready so go get a drink somewhere else while you wait. Relax. I go out to eat to enjoy myself...
Chais food SUCKS! Terrible food...I think it was just frozen and warmed in a microwave and bartenders who talk more then serve.... Just go to Basil's and wait. It is sooo worth it.
Basil is pretty good. As for the wait...yes its long...but go next door to chais, have a drink or an appetizer at their bar and basil will call you on your cell phone. How hard is that? Not hard at all. Ive never waited terribly long, or Ive never noticed bc I go to Chai's and have fun while waiting for my table. Maybe you should try that next time rather than pouting.
Basil's doesn't take reservations last i heard. i went a few months back and teh service and quality has gone down hill. wine prices there on the other hand have risen 100%. i had a few really bad experiences there in the more distant past, 2 years or so ago, didn't return until a few months ago and don't plan on returning any time soon.
Obviously Juice, you went in Friday. I actually tried to go there as well but after the 3rd restaurant I went to I was able to eat. Moral of the story--everywhere was extremely busy on Friday. Basil is one of the most consistent restaurants in town, for both customer service and food, so why don't you try ANY other time besides the rush on Friday night. and p.s. you didn't have to wait "2 hrs," I put my name down and the wait was an hour so I went somewhere else.
Juice, sounds like you got juiced. Basil is wonderful and anyone who has been downtown to Basil on a Friday knows to get a reservation or go early. Sounds like you must have had a bad attitude.
Arrive early, wait 2 hours, watch people get sat all around you even though they see you waiting, then complain, and lastly, after 2 exhaustive hours, try and find somewhere else to dine on a Friday night without a reservation....or just don't waste your time at Basil and go somewhere with actual customer service. Seriously, don't waste your time.
