Basil Asian Bistro
Fresh and Friendly!I am a server and a bartender,, as far as my experience with the staff at Basil it was bar-none one of the best ever. Our server Jennifer was helpful,knowledgeable, and accessible...a true pro! The presentation of our cocktails and entrees was gorgeous, fresh and tasty. I had the Korean Sizzling Steak, and it was amazing. I grew up eating Korean food and Basil's rendition of Bulgogee was amazing!!!!!! Thanks Basil!!! See you soon!!!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place in CantonThis was a good find. Food was above average, service was friendly, and a nice atmosphere to top it off. They pulled of having both Chinese and Thai cuisines on the same menu, and each regional dish was tailored to that regions styles.

I ordered the hot and sour soup as well as the Kung Pao Chicken with white rice. Both meals were served hot and the meal took less than 10 minutes to arrive at our table after ordering. The chicken was cooked perfectly as well as the rice. Highly recommended.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMy New Favorite RestaurantI visited Basil Saturday evening with my husband. The bar staff were collectively so nice and welcoming that I can't wait to go back just to have a drink. The food was outstanding and the service prompt.
My only complaint...tried to order one of their desserts and they were out of bananas. How can you be out of bananas? Couldn't you just send someone out to buy some??
Overall though it was a very positive experience. We are looking forward to going back with some friends.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOn our first visit to Basil,On our first visit to Basil, we truly tested the staff! On what is the busiest night of the month, First Friday, we arrived with 3 separate reservations for 14 but only had 12 show. Our party was quickly accommodated at one table and the service was amazing! So attentive!!!
I was pleasantly surprised at the noise level in the old building. The owners obviously did their homework and utilized effective sound control methods which does not conflict with the décor which, by the way was impressive. The old building looks great! The expansive bar was beautiful!
But the food! We enjoyed a couple maki rolls, pad Thai, and General Taos'. All was served fresh and hot and possibly the best pad Thai in Canton. We'll be back!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Thai food and greatGreat Thai food and great service! Our meals came out quickly and correctly. We were going to get drinks and the bar looked good, but drink prices were way too pricey. Also, the noise level could be lessened. It was very loud.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was absolutely wonderful.The food was absolutely wonderful.

Will recommend to friends and family for an enjoyable time.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBasil - A great find in Canton...Terrific place and Tony Lee ( Owner ) is very appreciative of your business. Food quality is excellent and the price is very reasonable for what you get. I would suggest to all when in the Downtown Canton area. We need to support a local business. Give the chain restuarants a rest in Belden and go here...3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMHad great service and theHad great service and the food was delicious!

Meghan did a great job, and the food was outstanding. We will definetly be back!!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMYou will love it!Basil Asian Bistro was a great choice in the downtown Canton area. The menu provided a wide variety of selections from your normal Chinese favorites and even included sushi. The drinks were particularly interesting, expecially the martinis (I won't spoil the surprise). The prices were a little on the high side for this area but overall it was a good dining experience. Our waiter was Alex and he provided outstanding service. Definitely worth checking this place out.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
