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

We happened by this place looking for some decent sushi late on a Friday night and have now found our new favorite sushi place!! We ordered the Triple Crown, Angry Tuna and Crunchy Shrimp rolls and a Spicy Tuna hand roll which were all FANTASTIC! The tuna in all of the rolls was amazingly fresh and a great quality easily...

We got takeout from this restaurant tonight. The food is very "Americanized" with lots of deep fried food, not authentic at all. Little flavor to any if the dishes.

My wife and I have a few favorite local restaurants in the Franklin, TN area. Basil is definitely near the top of the list. The authentic curries, wonderful flavors, and friendly service keeps bringing us back. I also like going there around sunset because the restaurant is situated on a slight hill with windows facing West. It's a treat having... More

This was our first visit since the management change. The food was very good (did not have sushi), the staff was very friendly (the owner stopped by several times to chat) and we thought the ambience was good. We will definitely be eating there again!

I used to be a huge fan of this restaurant, but when I visited about 6 weeks ago for dinner, I found that the ambience and service had deteriorated. The food was good, but not great. Quite disappointed.

Decided to try some Asian cuisine and went to Basil Restaurant in Franklin, TN. We went early -- not during the evening rush. We were greeted as we entered the restaurant and seated immediately. The server came promptly to our table to take our drink order and give us menus. The menu is very varied and should suit anyone's taste... More
