Our guests who like authentic Thai food have started discovering one of the newest restaurants in Black Mountain, Thai Basil. It’s a locally owned restaurant, with a second location in Asheville. Thai Basil in Black Mountain is open for lunch (noon to 3pm) and dinner (5pm-9:30pm) seven days a week, which is great because many restaurants are closed on Sunday or Monday.
We only hear great things about Thai Basil. They will tailor your meal to whichever level of “spicy” is best for you. The spring rolls get rave reviews, as does the Tom Yum soup. They have a variety of noodle and curry dishes, plus several chef’s specials, including Spicy Catfish and Bangkok Chicken. Be sure to order Thai Iced Tea with your meal.
Thai Basil’s Black Mountain restaurant is located on West State Street, just past Cherry. When you see the elephant sculpture outside, you’ll know you’ve arrived at a great new place to eat in town.
