Hadn't been here since it was the former Pien Thai, a block away.  Still on Hidalgo but closer to the Plaza.  For oldsters, it's where David's Cafe was for many years.

Ordered the Larb (#9 on menu).  Larb is my go-to Thai meal in hot weather.  It's a warm salad,  

You can judge a Thai place by their Larb (and I'm very judgy).  It's not something you order if you're in a hurry.  The chef has to finely dice the raw chicken and the veggies, then cook the chicken and combine for a salad-y dish.  Today at Basil Thai the chef's knife skills were impressive.  Very uniform fine dice on all the ingredients.

I asked for it muy picante and I'd say it was an 8 on a scale of 10 spice level, which is my sweet spot.  Enough to make my eyes water and drain my sinuses, but still able to taste the ingredients.

It was a huge portion (I think it's under appetizers??), maybe 2 cups of Larb and some rice on the side.  160p.  It was rather warm in the restaurant but they bring a frosty mug for your beer, 40p.

They have a few floor fans.

They are also on Traitte.
