I keep returning to the Red Basil because the food is always hot, fresh and flavourful. The service is fast and efficient.

A couple months ago a friend treated me to a meal out. I had never been to Red Basil prior to this visit. I was very impressed with, both, the menu selection and price. Nice wine list. The service was great, too. The several visits since have been equally enjoyable. Keep in mind the restaurant is often closed stat holidays... More

Never had a bad experience and have been there several times. Favourite selections are crispy chicken, pad thai, cashew chicken and spring rolls. You won't be disappointed in the selections and the taste is amazing.

I've never had a bad meal Here. The value is outstanding the veggies and meat are always really fresh. I eat out alot and I'll often make the drive to cambridge because it's worth the investment. If you haven't tried it, then u best get going. If you have tried it, then you know what I'm talking about.

This is a little dated, the menus were on the dirty side. The lunch special was good. Nothing to write home about.
