This would be a five, as the food is awesome (particularly the red curry crispy duck), but if you are here when it is busy, forget about talking to your tablemates (unless, like some, you decide it's okay to scream to make yourself heard). Maybe some interior modifications to reduce the noise would be a good idea? My significant other and I finally gave up trying to talk and just focused on enjoying the food, which, at Basil, is not a bad option, either. But conversation is such an important part of a meal, it's a shame not to be able to communicate without screaming.
To be fair, we've been to Basil in the early, early evenings when it was not too loud. 10 p.m. on Saturday - forget about it.
