Historically, Charlotte’s best Thai food could be found in dimly lit restaurants tucked into suburban strip centers. Uptown’s Basil Thai changed that, though, with a sleek interior and hip bar scene with exotic cocktails. But this isn’t all show. Consider the light, fresh basil rolls, served cool with shrimp and rice noodles wrapped in delicate rice paper. All the menu items are delicious enough to make it worth dressing up a little for your next Thai dinner.
