Have you tried Sweet Basil Thai in Greenville?
The Saiyud family moved from Pattaya Beach, Thailand, and landed in Greenville a few years later in 1997. They opened Sweet Basil Thai in 2005, and a few years later I met the matriarch of the family and fell in love with one of Greenville’s most popular Thai restaurants.
Carrying on his parent’s tradition of treating customers like family, Chin Saiyud is now running the restaurant while his parents enjoy retired life back in Thailand. If you’ve ever dined at Sweet Basil, then you know, this isn’t just a business for the family, it’s a passion. That is reflected in every dish that leaves the kitchen.
Aside from opening one of the Upstate’s most popular Thai restaurants, you might be surprised to know that another popular Thai restaurant in Greenville was opened with help from the Saiyud family.

This is my favorite Thai restaurant of anywhere I have ate. My go-to is the Massaman and I love the Tom Ka (spelling?) soup. Everything is delicious and tastes so homemade and fancy if that makes sense. We went last week and felt very safe in regards to covid.Angela W
