Success! Thanks for posting your review of Hot Basil Cafe. You’ve done the world some good today.

The biggest waste of money and the WORST SERVICE

Doesn't even deserve 1 star! They are WAY over priced which I would be willing to deal with if the service was worth it. The first time I went in I waited an hour for take out, 25 minutes of which was waiting for my order to be taken. I called in today for take out trying to give them a second chance, and got hung up on! When I called back to find out who it was that hung up on me, I found out it was the OWNERS SON! ... view more

best indian food stinky server

just because the food was good I gave it one star. I was there on a Tuesday and it looked like there was only one server in the restaurant to take care of all the customers that where in there the small place was almost full and only one boy running everywhere. That made service horrible, it took him for ever to come to our table and take our order and most of us don't have allot of time to have lunch. to make things... view more

Overpriced and bad.

I just finished ""eating"" a take-out order from this place.\r
It should *not* cost $60 for two appetizers, two curries and some naan. I still think they computed my bill wrong, but I didn't push the issue because I had a hungry family waiting for me.\r
When I got home, though, I found that the food I'd been overcharged for is simply horrible. Both the chicken satay and the thai stuffed chicken wings were t

absolutely TERRIBLE!!!

This restaurant used to be really good. But today's service and food was terrible. I think they had just recently opened back up due to a health inspection closure. I wasn't aware of that until I heard the owner tell that to someone over the phone. First of all, my Thai Iced Tea had a VERY sour taste and I returned it. The owner would not taste his own tea, but will have one of the cooks taste it. He said it wa... view more

great indian food with service like home

i discovered hot basil cafe accidentally while looking for apartments in the walnut creek and concord area. i must say that this is a hidden gem and the owner needs to market it more aggressively. The food was good and the service was prompt.\r
We have been back to Hot Basil quite a few times now, trying both their Indian and Thai foods now, and though often the seating might seem a lil close, the food and servi

Worst service

Worst service I have ever received. I went during lunch on a weekday. Was treated like a second class citizen. Food is ok. Parking is lousy.

Delightfully Diverse!

An undiscovered gem, this small cafe boasts authentic Indian AND Thai food at very reasonable prices. Our table was split among cuisines but this allowed ample opportunity to share. What a delight to find that one could order from either side of the menu and still find complementary tastes! Whether it be the spring rolls, cucumber salad, sikh kebab or basil seemed one could do no wrong. The only draw... view more
