A few examples from last night dinner: sushi rice was too sticky, flambe carpaccio was swimming in an oily sauce, bigne starters had a really weird and debatable combination of tastes, chocolate...

My wife an I had an excellent meal at Basara tonight, in fact it was amazing. We sat at the Sushi Bar and watched the chefs create exceptionally high quality dishes of many varieties, all gorgeous to look at. We had a Sashimi sampler (chefs choice), the spicy salmon tartare and the lobster avocado roll. All of them were outstanding.... More

A table at Basara Sushi restaurant in Milan was booked for me. Despite being a vegan, I love Sushi. More animated than a normal Sushi restaurant, some of the food was prepared in front of us by entertaining staff who seemed to thoroughly enjoy their work. There wasn't tofu but the staff thought of interesting and new vegan Sushi for... More

You have to be here at least once! It's definitely a great Japanese restaurant that I recommend to all of those who love good quality Japanese food. Personally, I think it's really up to those I usually join - Hana, Iyo, Finger's, Yuzu... and that I believe to be high quality. The salmon tataki is simply delicious, and the rolls... More
