Great Lunch Spot!

A great little restaurant which I have now visited twice for Lunch, the first time with my 5 year old Sushi loving daughter, the second for my Birthday with my Wife. The Staff are very friendly and welcoming, (they recognised me on my second visit which is always a good sign). The Set Menus are... read more

A small, very busy place with an authentic Jap Sushi Master - visited at lunch - for €25- you can have a great meal. The quality level of the food is excellent and service relatively fast. It has two locations in Milan. Good for business at lunchtime, great for couples for dinner.

Some months ago I stopped at Basara for lunch. I had a delicious lunch set while sitting in front of the chef and co-owner Hiro, who prepared the dished with the attention to details and the aim to perfection that only Japanese people can put in what they do. Then I decided to go for dinner and I first went... More

Here the waiter are worst then any other place. They are just not professional, food is bad. It is not clean and is not good. Noisy and crowded.

Stopped by for a business lunch with an American colleague and we were both impressed by the flavor, simpleness and color of our sushi! A must try if you are in the neighborhood

We based our choice on Trip advisor and once more it didn't fail. The quality of the food is really good and the presentation of the dishes is various and attractive. We took the ricciola carpaccio and it was amazing. Very good also the seared mixed carpaccio. We tried a couple of rolls and were very tasty. The warm dish... More

Small place, small and not so comfortable tables, some of which squeezed against the wall. Poor quality food. Nicely presented, but not so good as the reviews hint. 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
