If dining at this swank, two-story Thai spot in SOMA feels like a brewery, it's because Basil Canteen occupies the old Jackson Brewery space. The menu is filled with a huge array of Bangkok-style fusion eats, from pan-fried noodle and rice dishes to green papaya salad and chili-glazed baby back ribs. A huge communal table, brick walls, and a cement bar complete the interior.
