This restaurant is located at the beginning of ECR, before VGP golden beach. It is a decent spacious joint which has both indoor and outdoor seating options. The outdoor ones are pretty spacious and well spread out, providing you enough privacy -although during rainy/winter seasons, mosquitoes can be quite an irritant even though they have mosquito coils. Some of the... More

Good Tandoori Buffet in ECR, where else but in Basera. Te only problem is they do not have Live Tandoori Buffet outside. The ala carte is pretty costly, but tasty food.

Living on ECR, crossed Basera everyday but never got the chance to check it out.Paid them a visit last weekend. We were led inside and seated in a big table under the trees. This is a open air restaurant and being near the sea the breeze made it comfortable. The setting is nice and comfortable, although being near the sea... More

Living nearby, We have been to this restaurant many times. Our kids like the ambiance very much, especially the open seating and the elevated bamboo hut seating and the kids play area. The food here in our experience is good. After some experimenting we have arrived at a set of dishes that we like here. Our kids love the paneer... More

I went there twice. The buffet food items are sufficient, but the taste is not good. The bar b q is a gimmick, seems not freshly made. Instead of buffet, their a la carte food is good tasting as it is freshly made.

They have a tree top restaurant and thats very unique. A table at the top of a tree for your entire family and that gives complete privacy. The food items are good and tasty. Little bit pricey but that will be worth it. At times they screen sports events on the big screen but its a great place for team... More

I went to this place with my family about an year ago. Nothing much to talk about quality, service or value for money. Being outdoor is the only experience. Though there are fans, you can not escape a couple of mosquito bites if repellants are not placed. I will not go there again.

Basera is an age old restaurant on the ECR that has survived the sands of time. The outdoor seating is flushed with greenary that is not just manicured but also wild in a way. There are tree top dining areas with different kinds of seating options. The food is excellent and very reasonable, especially the north-indian fare. It's advisable to... More
