Useful information


Set near a charming bayside walking and biking trail on Foster City’s perimeter, Sweet Basil makes for a great meal after a leisurely stroll or strenuous ride. The space is snazzy and contemporary-looking with bamboo floors and colorful hanging lights, but the vibe is casual with the staff hustling to serve the daytime rush of office workers as well as families (at night).

Though you may have to wait for a table, their signature kabocha pumpkin and beef in a flavorful red curry will merit patience. Other delights include moist and well-marinated chicken satay; tofu stir-fried with bell peppers and basil; or sticky rice topped with mango. You can choose your own spice level here, but watch out—when this kitchen says hot, they’re not kidding around.
