Food and service are always amazing. The only thing I don’t care for is the noise level. It’s hard to have a normal conversation with a small table of 4 people. I can’t imagine it being much fun with a party of more than 4. That’s really my only complaint about the entire place. Everything else is amazing.

Basil consistently delivers, the food is always excellent, our server was outstanding, the atmosphere is urban unique. I wanted to take my brother, who I seldom get to see, to a place that I knew he would enjoy and love the food. When I don't want to take any chances I chose Basil because I know I will always have a very positive experience and always have quality, delicious food. Whether I'm in Canton or Hamilton-it's my place!

Our meals were good (not great) but our service was poor. Our server was kind, but he sort of neglected our table of two given that he had an eight top in the other room. We went for our anniversary, and made that known when making our reservation, and our server didn't offer us a dessert until after giving us our check and realizing we were not satisfied.

My family and I love this place. My lifestyle is gluten-free and finding Asian foods that cater to that can be challenging. Basil does a fantastic job of providing an extensive list of menu options without losing flavor.
The service is always amazing, and the ambiance is friendly.
Basil is by far one of my favorite restaurants!

Overall a great experience and the food was excellent. Unfortunately there was a mix up with our waiter and it took asking 2x who was coming to take our drink orders. We waited 15+ mins until someone came to our table to even take our intial drink order. Food was excellent, no complaints there. We will def be back.

This is what I call a "good" restaurant...the food was good, drinks were good, service was good, but nothing was like "OMG...awesome". So I would go back , and I would recommend. It's loud so it is informal..good for groups.

Dined before an event at the Palace Theatre with friends and family.
Food was delivered promptly but not too quickly so we could enjoy some time together without feeling rushed.
Food was presented as ordered and was delicious and hot.
Server was attentive without being noticed which we appreciate.
Thank you.

The Siam curry was very good & on the hot spicy end of the spectrum without being too hot. The tilapia, however, was not very tasty. Service was attentive but pace was uneven.

The taste and quality of the food was disappointing. The hot and sour soup was extremely peppery, which overpowered all other flavors. The breading on the calamari was too thick and the dish rather bland. The quality of the honey chicken was terrible. The sizzling Mongolian steak though was very good and the only saving grace. The steak was especially tender and well cooked. The service was fine - our waitress was attentive and pleasant. I really liked the restaurant itself. The décor was very interesting and well done.
