Incredible food! We are return diners and we have never been disappointed! We highly recommend this restaurant to all. Their menu has a variety of offerings, and there's also a widespread offering of accompanying libations. (I had a glass of Irish bourbon after dinner.) The wait staff are incredible, too. Basil is a smaller venue but in big demand, so we suggest making a reservation.

Great sangria drink special, spring roll appetizer, pho entree, and mascarpone berry dessert! Friendly, personable and helpful service. Somewhat on the pricier side, but great quality!

We have been to dinner several times at Basil and enjoy everything about the Restaurant , from the food, the atmosphere and the rotating original artwork that is displayed. The service and waitress were outstanding, very enjoyable dining experience. I order something different every time to experience a wide variety of dinners offered on the menu. I highly recommend the Basil Restaurant to my friends as an exceptional evening out dining experience.

Unfortunately on both dishes the chicken was overcooked. A loud table was right next to us. The appetizer of Naan and 3 sauces was fantastic! Whisky selection very good, heavy on Scotch choices, light on Bourbon, beer selection was less than average.

David, I am sorry that you did not enjoy your entrees. Unfortunately, we are a smaller restaurant and cannot control if the table by you is loud which I wish we could. We are glad you enjoyed your Naan Bread dippers! I hope you try us again and hopefully we can give you a better more quiet experience! - The Team at Basil

The coconut shrimp was outstanding.
The Korean pork chops were very flavorful and tender. Had the cheesy mashed potatoes and was happy with it. The sauteed vegetables done to perfection. My wife had the pan fried salmon with red curry and noodles and she totally enjoyed it.

The seating is rather right due to the small square footage, but it makes for an intimate meal. Literally some of the best food I have ever had.

The service wasn’t as good as last week. I think our wait staff was a bit junior. However, the meal, duck, was fabulous as was the calamari.

Our wait staff, Valerie, I believe, was fabulous. She was attentive l, but not smothering. Each of our three (3) courses were brought-out in a timely fashion--- though we were allowed to converse without being rushed.
The experience was excellent.

Despite the strip mall setting, they create a nice ambiance. Delicious duck and fabulous seasoning keep us coming back. Great value in the custom cocktails! Crab cakes were more cake than crab. They are still tasty, but I like lumps of crab and minimal cake. Committed community supporters too!

Service was excellent. Music was oldies, not adding to atmosphere. Potstickers were overdone, brown and crunchy. Salmon also overdone and dry. Yellow curry was their mildest curry and still too spicy in our opinion. This used to be one of our favorite restaurants, but it seems owners may now be too focused on their new place in Wausau and letting Basils slide.

Basil is our favorite restaurant in Wausau. The food is outstanding with a good fusion vibe. Limited seating so reservations are a good idea. Not inexpensive but certainly worth it.

We are big city folks who moved to this smaller town. Having a restaurant like Basil in the area has been a real treat. The food/flavor combinations are artistic and will bring delight to any casual foodie. The service is wonderful especially making food recommendations. This is a must try in the greater Wausau area

The first impression was very positive upon entering Basil. The décor is modern & elegant. We were met at the door by the hostess, who immediately took us to our reserved table. The waiter came almost immediately to pleasantly greet us & take a drink order. The menu, both regular and seasonal, had many appealing options.

We ordered the coconut shrimp appetizer, which was delicious. Our dinner choices were the Fall Duck, regular duck, green curry with shrimp and Fusion grilled chicken; all were outstanding, and very nicely presented. We finished with the Crème Brulee and Tiramisu, which were exceptional!

We would recommend Basil to any and all. For a intimate date, or a group occasion, this a great place to go!

It’s rare to find ethnic food Up North other than Italian or Tex-Mex. Here you have a choice of Thai or Irish. We went Thai and were very pleased.
Our server, Jenny, was delightful!

We had not been there in several years, and it was as good as we remembered The spring rolls are magnificent. Only suggestion might be a fancier menu presentation. The laminated ones less appealing.
