A word from Basho Japanese Brasserie
Basho is a Japanese word that is roughly translated as "location" or "a space where activities occur". It could be a family gathering, socializing with friends, or a business event; moreover, it could be the setting for an unforgettable experience. We call this setting "Basho". Basho is a contemporary Izakaya brasserie. Here, dishes are prepared in three separate areas: the principal kitchen, the sushi bar, and the robata grill. Rather than offering individual starters and main courses, Basho serves dishes that are designed for sharing and are brought to the table steadily and continuously throughout the meal. Your server will be happy to assist you in choosing a menu.

    The food was fresh and outstanding from the appetizers, the starters and entrees. Sushi was phenomenal. We'll definitely be back again.

  • After paying downtown Boston

    After paying downtown Boston valet rates when there was no Red sox game we thought we'd be in for a special treat. We'd been looking forward to some good Japanese food and was impressed with the ambiance when we first walked in. Our server was helpful, but the food was particularly underwhelming. It's hard to go wrong with sushi and maki rolls, but Basho's was fairly tasteless; certainly nothing special. My wife also got some soba noodles that needed a lot more flavor to eat. When she told the server that she didn't like them, he feigned disappointment, but offered nothing in return. Not even soy?@! Sorry Basho, with some other really good Japanese restaurants nearby it will be a while until we return.

    Basho was a fabulous sushi experience! A great find! Loved the Boston themed rolls! Found their sushi and all ingredients are so fresh! Great find if you're looking for some unique rolls! Right near Fenway if you're looking for a pre/post game dinner. Tables are a little too close together for my liking. Service was excellent!

    The food was delicious and tastefully presented. We will make your restaurant one of our favorites. One objection: The music was repetitive, too loud. We would have preferred Asian style music, conducive to gentle, slow eating.
