Basil Asian Bistro Ratings and Reviews
Basil is a great spot for groups or dates and it is so nice that they take reservations on open table and never make you wait. Even when I have called being a few minutes late they never make a big deal of it and are always accommodating. The setting may be loud for someone who wants quiet.
My wife and I went for our date night. This was our third time coming here. This has quickly become our go-to date spot. My wife has a dairy allergy and they cook with a lot of coconut milk so she can get almost everything on the menu. The food is amazing, the service is always stellar and we love the ambiance and downtown location. I highly recommend any of their curry dishes, the Thai Dumpling app or the General Tso’s with fried rice. Haven’t had a bad dinner yet. Easily the best Asian cuisine in the Canton area.
The night we dined was a busy night in the restaurant, with many activities occurring nearby. We had reservations and were seated promptly. The service was great throughout. Where the experience fell short was in the wine and the sushi. We ordered a Malbec wine and it stated somewhat sour, as if it had been poured from a bottle opened days ago. The sushi we ordered (Philly roll and Volcano roll( didn't pack the taste we've enjoyed at other venues. My entrée of spicy garlic fish was good but not great.
Reservations made was easy. We knew it was going to be a busy night, however we didn’t anticipate that we would feel so rushed to eat. My Hibachi rice that is always my go to was very blah- none of the usual vegetables included- just rice and chicken. Appetizer came at the same time as the meal.
I've been to Basil many times. I truly love it -- once I am seated. But, on the last two occasions, despite the fact that we had reservations, we still had to wait upwards of 30 minutes to get our table. In a normal circumstance, this might be okay. But, when we're holding tickets for a movie or play -- dinner then becomes rushed -- despite the wonderful efforts of the servers who try to "make up" for the delay with outstanding customer service. Our intention to order appetizers and drinks was also cut short -- making our dollars spent a bit less than if we would have had more time to really savor our meal.
Heard about Basil's from friends. Was intrigued enough to read reviews, check out the menu and make reservations for the coming week. Was not disappointed! Our waiter(Dennis) was exceptional and the food and drink was exactly what we expected! Will be introducing Basil's to others in the near future!
Came to celebrate an anniversary and the noise level was so loud we couldn't hear one another. Was so looking forward to a beautiful evening and was so disappointed. We ate and left quickly. Our waiter was not very attentive as he was more attentive to larger parties. Very disappointed
My husband and I splurged on a rare date night - and Basil did not disappoint! We each ordered a martini (my 'French Kiss Tini' came chilled with dry ice that made it bubble!), a sushi roll, and an entree. Everything was delicious and we were stuffed by the end! We got the Spider and Dragon sushi rolls, and the Avocado Curry, and Szechuan Duck (portion sizes were generous; good value!). I enjoyed the Duck, but LOVED the Avocado curry as it reminded me of a dish I enjoyed back in my early college days.
Overall a terrifically delicious experience; we will be back! Thank you, Basil :-D
The food is always excellent, but this last time in, it was extremely loud. we were in with another couple and it was difficult to talk across the table. There was a big table of people down the middle of the room, that may be why it was so loud. I hope next trip in it isn't so loud.
