Over the weekend I was craving Thai, so I decided to order from Seamless ($5 off your first order when you sign up for Seamless!). Anyways, I saw a new Thai place I hadnâ€™t tried before, and tried Red Basil Thai Kitchen.
My delivery showed up in its delivery window.Â Off the bat, I loved how many spring rolls were offered â€“ 5 good-size rolls for $4.95. Best of all, freebies were included. A box marked â€œfree!â€ contained two honey covered spring rolls, filled with bananas. It was a delicious dessert, and I loved that they threw in a freebie.
While the meal started off so well, the rest of it was disappointing. I ordered the chicken pad thai for $8.95, and it was tasteless. While the usual suspects were in there â€“ egg, chicken, noodles â€“ it just tasted blah. Luckily there was some chili sauce thrown in with the pad thai. I mixed that in to give it some taste, but if I wanted a spicy noodle dish, I would have ordered drunken noodle.
Iâ€™d try Red Basil Thai Kitchen again â€“ but would not order the pad thai. While the spring rolls and freebie were great, a majority of the pad thai spent the rest of the night in the garbage pail, which is definitely unlike me since Iâ€™m a sucker for leftovers.The Basics Name: Red Basil Thai Kitchen Location: 32-47 Steinway Street Who to Bring: Self, Delivery Price: $$ App and entree (and tip!) were $17 Overall: 3 stars. Will give it one more shot.
