Excellent service from the host staff to our server. Octopus and sizzling beef were highlights, as were oysters. Papaya salad was flavorful but perhaps had been sitting a bit long-- a bit limp for lack of better term. Fried rice was just ok.

Bashi at Terranea is great mainly because of its location overlooking the pool at Terranea and the ocean. Very beautiful, especially on the patio on a balmy night. Upscale restaurant and resort. We had the chicken dumplings; rainbow sushi; brussels sprout salad; shanghai garlic noodles; and Kung Pao chicken. All were very good with the exception of the brussels sprout salad and the Kung Pao chicken, both of which were highly recommended by our waiter. We can't figure out why as they were really poor choices. Another table had the Sizzling Shaky Beef which looked and smelled delicious. By the way, the cocktails at all the restaurants in the resort don't seem to have much alcohol in them and every time I order one, I wished I'd ordered a plain glass of wine instead.
Go and enjoy the good food and the beautiful setting. You will not regret it!

Food is always exceptional.

Problem the other night was, poor service, we had to ask twice for silverware, our dinners did not come together. I rcvd the wrong sushi order, then waited forever for the correct order. Only had one drink , she never came back for another round.
No lighting. We could not see what we were eating, folks put some lighting outside or at least bright candles.

The outdoor seating has beautiful views. I was disappointed that they were out of the bottle of sake I requested and the suggested replacement was almost double in cost. The timing was off since my entree came out much earlier than my sushi appetizer. The entree was very salty, but the sushi was very good.

Wasn’t expecting much given that this is a restaurant at the resort. We were seated on the patio with a great evening view of the coast line. I was pleasantly surprised that the quality of food both in taste and presentation was actually quite good. We had the Hamachi Poke bowl served in a generous portion with the right level of spice. Followed this up with an assortment of Maki sushi ending with the Garlic Noodles and Spicy Beans. Would recommend this restaurant and will be returning during our stay at Terranea.

We went for our anniversary for the sizzling beef, which is our favorite. It is an expensive dish, but always well worth it. We ordered 2 of them. This time though, the onions weren't cooked enough and there was much less beef and potatoes on both of our plates then other visits. Hoping it was just an oversight this time as it was a bit disappointing. However, service and ambience was great. Also got to see our favorite waitress, Lina, again. She wasn't our server, but loved getting to visit and highly recommend her.

Excellent view of coast; exotic asian fare with large variety of choices including vegan, meat and seafood. Generous portions of all entrees which makes sharing easy and recommended. Garlic noodles particularly special. Service was prompt, respectful and courteous. Waiter well acquainted with menu and his recommendations were spot on. I highly recommend it and will return. Open table reservation was key, as the resort is crowded and waits can be long.

Would have given the food 5 stars, but the dessert was very underwhelming. The shaking beef and garlic noodles were all we heard they would. Service was attentive but not intrusive and the outdoor patio was very relaxing.

If you are in the area, completely worth the stop.

Bashi is a fine option if you want to stay within Terranea, but the reality is their "Shanghai Noodles" are lo mein noodles, like the ones you'd get at any American-Chinese restaurant. The bonus is that their portions are very generous, so you don't need to order a lot to end up with enough for a meal, with more for the next day.

We met my daughter and son-in-law for dinner at bashi and were very happy with the good food and moderate level of noise allowing for conversation. Our server was pleasant and attentive and other servers helped to get dishes that we shared on the table. There's a lovely outdoor area and while a little noisy overlooking a busy swimming pool, the view of the ocean is lovely. We chose to eat indoors for the quiet and shelter from the breeze. This time we chose specials from the menu and next time, we'd like to try the sushi. Great place to share and taste different choices from the menu.

We have been to bashi many times and were very disappointed with our meal there tonight. We enjoyed the green papaya salad. It had four big delicious shrimp. We shared the Kung Pao chicken and spicy garlic green beans for our main. Neither meal had much flavor and were not spicy at all. Unfortunately the oil on both overtook the dishes. We chose bashi because we have so enjoyed meals there over the last few years. We had requested an outdoor table with our reservation and were disppointed that one was not available when we arrived. Our night out to celebrate our anniversary did not turn out to be special at all :-( Service was slow and my cocktail had to be remade as the first one wasn't strained of the small ice pieces.

The Garlic noodle bowls is outstanding! One of my favorite dishes here. And the chicken potstickers too. Love these, so tasty. Cocktails are tasty but really overpriced. I liked my blackberry smash, hubby had a beer. But with service, if you don't order beverages right at the beginning, the servers can't remember to go find your beverage in the midst of serving plates. my server chose to return dishes, clear tables, mess with the hostess before he checked for my beverage at the bar (ready in my view) for over 15 minutes before he went and brought it to my table.

Everything started out great. The service started out great, the food was amazing, but as soon as the food was served we were abandoned. We had to ask multiple people multiple times to get more water or another drink. It was honestly quite bizarre. Like I said the food was amazing - definitely order the sizzling steak dish!!
