Disappointing Restaruant Experience

Last week my fiancee and I had dinner at your Basil Leaf Thai Cusine restaraunt in Mandeville, Louisiana between 7:00 and 7:45. The food was good but we were very dissapointed with some things that took place both while we were trying to enjoy our meal, and also afterwards when we had signed our bill and were waiting to leave.\r \r There were only two tables in the restaraunt that were occupied while we were there... view more

Good Food - Nice Ambiance - A Bit Pricey

I generally like the food there, the service is very good, and the ambiance is relatively warm and quiet. While it may not be ""authentic"" Thai food, I rather like what I'd term their California Thai cuisine. While the prices are a bit steep, I find it's worth it from time to time.

Hot & Spicy

This is a great little place with a good choice of foods to choose from. But beware the food is very hot & spicy so if you don't like it like that you'd better let your waiter know in advance. Try the Drunken Noodles or the Spicy Basil Chicken. They're both excellent but watch the heat.

sublime asian haute cuisine in N'awlins

We have savoured Kelly (Metairie native) and spouse Bank's restaurant since they started in Metairie about 10 years ago. When we return to N'awlins, it is our one ""must do"" restaurant. The service complements the sublime, distinctive Thai cuisine. Fresh ingredients contribute to alive flavors, and Bank brings back selected spices and seasonings from his native Thailand. A meal of multiple appetizers is a very good ... view more

Best Thai Food Anywhere!

The first time I experienced the Basil Leaf, I was very pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere, the service, and more importantly the food. Once I had their Pad Thai, I was hooked, and during my brief stay in New Orleans, I had to make serveral trips to this little jem of a resturant to try almost everything on the menu, and nothing dissapointed.

BIG Disappointment

This restaurant is in my neighborhood, so I was anxious to try their food. I LOVE Vietnamese food, and after relocating from Hawaii, where good Vietnamese food is easy to find, the only place I really had enjoyed was Nine Roses on the West Bank. I took a stroll over to the Basil Leaf a few weeks ago, and while I was encouraged by the gracious enthusiasm of our server - the food itself fell far short of the mark. F... view more

Good Thai and at a reasonable price

I'm very picky about my food. I consider myself a decent cook and I refuse to eat at any restaurants in New Orleans that I can find elsewhere. I mostly stay out of the Quarter since the food doesn't have to be great since it's mostly aimed at tourists and it's usually a little price, especially for a student like myself.\r \r I highly recommend the Basil Leaf. My girlfriend and I were heading to Jacques-Imo's on... view more

a joke...

...and unfortunately after you pay the bill, you realize the joke is on you. basil leaf is unique in that it is not only the worst thai ive ever had, but also the most expensive. beware the ""specials"" -- they dont mention the price; double that of menu items. the eggplant napoleon app was $13, cant imagine why. the coconut curry entree special mentioned by another is $23. twenty-three bucks!! for: rice, watery red... view more

Overpriced and not very authentic

While the ambience is nicer than your average Thai place, the food itself was overpriced. Over $10 for pad thai is absurd. While my friend ordered the special and it was presented well and portions are large, overall I spent about $20 for chicken pad thai and a water. I do not plan on returning to this establishment.
