A lot has changed in the Charleston dining world since brothers Henry and Chai Eang opened their original Basil on King Street. Back then, the staple flavors of Thailand — lime, basil, garlic, lemongrass — were a revelation to local diners, who queued up to wait for a table. A decade later, those flavors have gone mainstream, but the pad Thai, crispy red curry duck, and fried whole flounder and the long-standing no-reservations policy keep them lined up on the sidewalk. A sleek, stylish second location in Mt. Pleasant now offers the same piping-hot soups and cool basil-tinged summer rolls that Charlestonians have long enjoyed. —Robert Moss Dish (Winter 2013)
