Sweet Basil - Nice addition to Franklin Avenue - Prospect / Crown Heights

Just a quick review - we really liked this place and we want to see it stick around.

The crab rangoon appetizer beats the socks off what you get from the bulletproof glass Chinese places (I know that isn't saying much, but it's the only other crab rangoon I've had.)

The pad Thai was great - not too sweet. And my beef with cashews was also tasty.

The decor is elegant and relaxing, and the food presentation could make this a destination restaurant. Throw in great prices (app, two entrees and two lemonades for $32.66 + tip), and we're going back.

The two downsides are a) it was a little dark, so I couldn't appreciate the decor and more importantly, I didn't see the dried red chili pepper that I chomped on and swallowed, and b) they don't have limes, which I thought was like the Thai food version of ketchup.
