Overall, not bad

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... read more

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

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

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
