Thai Basil does not have the area's best Thai food- for that you will have to go to Chinatown. But it does have the best for the Newbury Street neighborhood. They have an excellent selection of curries and Pad Thai dishes. Everything on the menu is available in a cheaper lunch size portion if you are there at the right time- definitely a good amount of food for prices that rarely top $10. The service here is pretty good as well.
