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.

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

This place is very quiet and is a true value for money. The food is very tasty and serves lovely Naans and Kebabs. If you are on the ECR, you should spend time here. The tables are in open air. They have rotating fans all around and the tables are covered with Umberallas. They place is totally shaded with GREENERY... More

Delicious food, mouth-watering starters, peaceful ambience to relish on the food far away from the polluted city! Not suitable for groups as it will spoil the serenity of the place! Loved the restaurant very much!
