To spice up your night, stop by Hot Basil for one of founder Lee Chai’s counted-on classics: crispy Thai chicken wings sautéed in a garlic-basil sauce, pineapple fried rice or pad Thai – all of which are available for dine-in service or carryout.
Located in the Rosana Square Shopping Center in Overland Park, Kansas, the restaurant lets diners choose the level of heat in their meal. After brisk lunch reservations, the pace slows down for dinner, when families gather to enjoy aromatic platters of their favorite Thai dishes.
Before opening Hot Basil, Chai worked with Ann Liberda, founder of Thai Place and Waldo Thai Place. Now he’s turned his tiny, but comfortable eatery into his own legacy.
