    initially was disappointed, we were 5+ minutes late due local streets blocked & could not get into their parking lot. we were finally seated 20+ minutes later. took our order after more waiting. food was more waiting. waiter was great, food was great. I feel their problem might have been that they were allowing walk-ins to be seated at bar area. Also believe Canton was having "restaurant week" offering freebees, driving up walk-ins. we did have Palace theatre tickets for 7:30, & did get to our seats at 7:15. all ended well but was nerve wracking at first. Would go again, but would allow more extra time.

    Have done here many times over the years, and yesterday was by far the worst. Starting with the attitude of our waitress, which was poor and uninviting. The temperature in the restaurant itself was hot and muggy. The sushi came out warm, which was concerning when that particular role is supposed to be served chilled. Two of us paid with cash and neither was offered our money/change back. It was kept as a assumed tip.

    We had a reservation, and arrived on time. But we were told it would be a 20-25 minute wait for a table. We were then offered a high top in the bar and sat there. Food and service were both very good but I was disappointed not to be seated in the dining room where it would have been more comfortable.

    overall the experience was fine. we ordered the calamari to start, I would not recommend it. overcooked and lacked flavor. Next we had the pork and shrimp dumplings, they were "ok". Between us we had 2 chicken dishes, a veggie dish and all were just good. I had higher hopes as I am a fan of the owner and his other place Luca, right around the corner, which we love love. It was busy , the noise level is a lot..

    The food at Basil is always delicious! My husband and I love the noodles and always make sure they’re included with our meal. There are so many great items on the menu. The salt and pepper shrimp is one of our favorite appetizers. The specialty drinks are also great. The bartenders and wait staff have always been extremely friendly, professional, helpful and fun. We’ve never had a bad experience there. I truly look forward to going there every time. Recommend reservations because they do get busy.

    The server was not so great didn’t listen to anything that we order my son ordered a Coke Ebrahim sweetie. I asked for no spice and he had chili flakes on my pad thai. Food was so hot that my lips were on fire and I couldn’t even put on lipgloss after my meal it was burning even more he did substitute the noodles which I really appreciate it but the service all around was terrible. I typically get pad Thai once a week to go, considering we were his only table. I don’t feel that we should’ve waited for so long for refills on water or for our meals to be messed up. Great kid terrible service.

    We planned to give Asian Bistro another visit, and are glad we did. Our servers were attentive and service moved smoothly. We enjoy your unique menu of Asian specialties and sushi. Our appetizer and meal were fresh, hot, nice presentation, and served with great spices and especially good sauces. For a week night, it was busy with folks of all ages, which is a good sign for out of towners choosing a place to eat. Keep up the good work !

    This was our first time at Basil and we will be back! Michele was our server and she made some great recommendations for us as first time diners. Everything we ordered was delicious. We are curious about the 7 course tasting menu that is offered by reservation only and would love to come back with friends sometime for that!

    The menu offered many choices so variety of food is extensive. I had Crystal shrimp, my husband had Happy Family. The food was passable but lacked a great deal of flavor. No soy sauce was offered and appetizer dishes were left on the table when main food arrived. The staff was friendly but needs more training in creating a better dining experience. Example - the food runners from the kitchen were trying to serve the main courses but it didn’t occur to them to take the dirty appetizer dishes off the table so we would have more room. Overall I would go back, but my expectations would be lower.

    The lunch menu there was very pricey for lunch! The food was great but if you're paying $24 for a meal and don't get a ginger salad or soup with entree for that much money something's not right!? I ordered the Korean bbq steak and it only came with rice. My husband ordered the seafood combo Happy family for $22 and only got a little side of rice. That really needs to change. You should get a couple of sides, at least a side salad to go with it!
