The dinner that we had here tonight was awesome, without a doubt the best Thai food that I've ever had. We had the Green Basil duck, drunken noodles, Tom Kha Kai soup, and Spicy Basil Chicken, and each dish was better than the next. Highly recommended! I've never eaten here before, and I usually order Tom Yum soup (I mean it has the word "yum" in it, so it has to be good, right?), so this is the first time that I've had Tom Kha Kai but it was full of coconutty goodness!read more
Always delicious food served quickly, the staff is friendly and helpful
Perhaps the best Thai food in the area. Order correct, food prepared top quality !
Excellent Pad Thai with tofu. I went at noon and met a friend there. The place was very busy, but we were seated pretty quickly and got a complimentary cup of clear soup which was lovely on a cold day. Waitress was very patient with my friend who needed to order something not on the menu and they accommodated her. They let us linger over tea.read more
Service was great. They welcomed our dog to eat politely outside. We had the seafood rangoon appetizer and highly recommend it. Also the Sesame Chicken which was fresh, not clumps of over breaded chicken covered in a thick sauce, but fresh chicken and vegetables in a light delicious broth. We'll definitely go back.read more

I thought the food was excellent! Ingredients were fresh and flavorful. We came in with a party of 9. Only complaint is that not all of our food came out at once. Some people were waiting up to 5 minutes extra for their entrees after the rest of us had ours. All in all i would return and try out a new dish!read more
Escaping out of Chicago on the way to Lake Geneva, we decided to spend a night at the Doubletree by Hilton (a friend was having her birthday there and it made no sense to drive back to the City). We love their restaurant Karma but wanted to enjoy a meal out side, celebrating with our puppy Truffle so we opted for Green Basil nearby. Don't let the strip shopping center scare you off. It's a great spot and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating, even bringing a candle so we could enjoy a romantic dinner. We started with a papaya salad that was fresh and beautifully presented, delicious! The seafood rangoon was impressive. Three large packets filled with cream cheese and seafood, obviously fresh made. I ordered the chef special, peppered soft shell crab and omg, it was fantastic with loads of al dente veggies and a huge mound of fried rice on the side. My husband enjoyed his perfectly cooked roasted duck in a light coconut curry sauce. They have an adequate wine list and a decent cocktail menu. We were too full for dessert but I'm sure it would have been equally great. I would definitely recommend it and as crazy as it sounds, I would travel from Chicago to enjoy another dinner here. Green Basil is worth of a serious look and an added bonus this evening was the lovely folk guitarist who was playing at the neighboring restaurant, Nirvana, as they piped the music outside to our enjoyment.read more

Green Basil has been our go-to place for good Thai food since we moved to Vernon Hills. We've had great lunches and dinners, and have yet to try anything that was not terrific. Also a nice ambiance, and in good weather it has a nice sidewalk dining area.read more
