Great little place

We just had some take out and we waited for our food on their front porch where they have a few tabled. It's a quiet little place with good food that is great for a weekend trip.

More often than not, Basil Cafe is our go to restaurant. The food is consistently good and wholesome with great options for vegetarians. Chef Chung usually comes around for a short visit to see how his customers are enjoying his dishes. He is delightful and always fun to talk to. He also is very community oriented nd has hostd several... More

The best and most reasonable food on the south end. The food is fresh and good and healthy. The Pho is amazing, the ginger baby squid is amazing. Like Candy. The owner/chef is the BEST. A must stop ....

Basil Cafe bills itself as Asian Fusion. I bill it as inedible. We ordered the appetizer platter and Shaking Beef and ended up having the rice and not much else. If you value your gastrointestinal system, DO NOT GO.

Big menu with Pho of all sorts. The owner who I think was named Chang, was very friendly and would make you literally anything you want. I got a noodle dish with shrimp that was very different and good. Spring rolls the same. It's beer and wine only here and low key. The place is decorated nicely and is much... More

Outdoor seating. Wonderful food and great prices. Love this place. They may run out or be crowded so call ahead?? We like to eat there in good weather and sit outside on the lawn

Located right in Bayview, it is a gem to discover, especially their chicken soup. Great selection, and during the summer have a very cozy outside area overlooking the farmers market.

We were looking for an alternative restaurant near Langley and enjoyed the Basil Cafe -- the building has a funky charm and the owner is extremely friendly. Good food, reasonably priced, not fancy but very tasty.

I went fly fishing on Lone Lake and nearby the lake is this small restaurant, just a block or so off the main highway on Whidbey Island. Although the owner said that they'd been there almost 6 years, I'd never noticed it before as you can't see it from the main highway; maybe there are some new signs up or... More
