Food is great...service has improved

My wife and I frequent this establishment because it's easy access, the food is outstanding. We've never had bad food, service has been lack luster but it has gradually improved. I think they try to do too much with limited staff/space, maybe cut back on menu choices do fewer things better would... read more

Great flavor in the roll. I felt that it was not the best value, but the product was fresh and really great flavors. Very good food and service. I'm happy with the visit.

The reviews are correct! On both of our two visits, we were pleased with the quality of food, but the service was sub-par. Don't be in a hurry to get your courses, your beverages or your check. On the first visit I ordered a cocktail and I swear they had to go out for the limes. I had told our... More

Very mediocre service and food. There were four of us on our second visit since we wanted to give it a good chance before writing it off. The food was okay but there are several places that are excellent so why bother......

When I'm working in this area and need to eat, this is my top choice. I can sit with my ipad and work if need be, especially like the curries: hing-lay is my favorite.

1st The service at this placed absolutely sucks. 2nd The host knows it's horrid and tried to warn us when he sat us. 3rd The host had to ask the bartender to come take our order because it was obvious we where preparing to walk out. So my advice is if you want good service sit at the bar, the... More

We've been here twice, and the food was good both times, although the New Yorker roll the wife ordered this latest visit was to come with spicy tuna on top. It did, but the tuna was chopped to a fare thee well, almost a mush. The flavor was fine, but the texture was too bizarre for her. The Basil Steak... More

I say "surprisingly" because I never expected to find such great sushi in Frankin, TN. We arrived pretty early in the evening (about 5PM - opening time) and the place was empty. That was a little concerning; however while we were there, people kept filing in - to be seated or to pick up their take out orders. My husband... More

They have glass noodles and will make it with chicken, shrimp or both. Service is a little slow but the wait is worth it. If you have food allergies, just let them know & they can tweek the preparation.

I went to Basil Asian Bistro by myself for lunch. I don't normally eat by myself and I was feeling a little awkward. The staff and the owner were very friendly and made me feel very welcome. I had a noodle dish which was delicious. I could also see that they offered a variety of Asian food including sushi. The... More
