Hi! We're glad you found us.

🍴 For Dine-In: check out our menu, place your orders at the register, then take a seat at any available table. We'll bring your food out to you. There's also a condiment station with sauces, water, utensils and napkins. We highly recommend coming between 3pm-5pm for the best availability.

🏃 Carry-Out: Orders can be placed in advance via online ordering or by phone. Orders can also be placed at the register for take out but we highly recommend ordering ahead to avoid wait times. There is also a waiting area at the front of the restaurant. 


Wait times for both dine-in and pick-up may exceed an hour, especially on weekends and prime dinner times. This is normal for our small restaurant with many customers happily waiting! Due to high volume orders, we process 1 order every 3 minutes. Please plan accordingly. 😊 If you have any issues, please reach out to us directly so that we can make it right for you and improve. If you have any questions about the menu or how this works, our family and team are ready to assist you. Just look for anyone in a bright green Sweet Basil shirt or hoodie or send us a message. See you all soon!

About Sweet Basil

Looking for something fresh and different in Milwaukee? We are serving up Thai & Laotian street eats like skewers, noodles, rice dishes, curry, soups, and grilled meats reminiscent of the markets in Thailand and Laos. There are traditional items on the menu as a homage to the classics along with new Asian-American fusion ideas. 

All of our ingredients are personally selected to ensure quality. The meat we bring in comes from high-standard, reputable sources. We reject and replace any vegetables that look questionable. All of our dishes are made fresh as soon as you order. Our menu may change seasonally, with specials also posted to our social media (see links below).

Thank you for supporting a small, family-owned and operated business


We also thank you for your patience as wait times may exceed over an hour, especially on Fridays and Saturdays. This is normal, please plan accordingly. 

- The Sweet Basil Family
