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 where dishes are prepared in two separate areas: the principal kitchen and the sushi bar. 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 dishes, such as our Spicy Tuna on Crispy Rice Appetizer, which is highly popular or our specially crafted 1338 Signature Roll. We are also conveniently located within the heart of Fenway. If you're ever in the area for a Red Sox's game, stop by! We are only a 2 minute walk from Fenway Park!

We said something and one person out of everyone working did something. We had basically finished our meal by then, totally grossed out, but the restaurant didn’t offer any compensation or monetary gesture to make up for the incident. Overall it was both alarming that there were mice running around and then doubly alarming that no one captured them or felt our party should be paid back in some way for a terrible dining experience. Won’t be coming back here and actually considering calling the city of Boston because no one should eat here.

The menu is much curtailed which was disappointing, but the food was more or less still good. The service though was the most disappointing part. We waited far too long for our server to come to the table, take our order, check on us, ask us if we wanted another round of drinks etc. We even had to wait 10min for the host to seat us at a table for two when we had a reservation. I think we all have to be understanding right now given covid and staffing shortages, but other tables seemed to be served much faster and more consistently than us.

We both had well put together cocktails with our edamame and very tasty pork gyoza. Service was excellent, we ordered in 3 tranches, but all food arrived quickly and was properly presented.

The windows were open so the ventilation was great but it was a little chilly so bring extra layers. The food was amazing as usual. From the pork belly steamed buns, to the sushi and sashimi and the bento boxes....the food was all excellent. We love Basho!
