Teppan dinner...yum!

We had a Teppan dinner here with friends. It was apparently chef Chungs last Teppan meal, great showmanship and delicious food. Simply cooked, delicious raw ingredients enjoyed by all 9 of us.

Nice Asian restaurant, never quite figured out if it was Thai or Vietnamese - I guess I'll call it fusion. I had the noodle salad, large serving, quite tasty.

Had a wonderful lunch there after a couple of the local business owners suggested we visit. The outdoor seating was lovely, service was very fast and the food was worth coming back for. Everything was top notch. Planning on going back again today.

WOW! It was so good, we ate her twice during our trip. The flavors were vivid and I continue to reminisce. The chef is quite talented and personable. While we were there, he entertained guests with a hibachi meal for reserved guests. If the laughter was any indications, people had a wonderful time. We enjoyed a multitude of appetizers, I... More

My husband and I stopped here just because we were hungry for lunch and the restaurant was nearby - so lucky for us! Sat outside on the porch and enjoyed delicious Asian cuisine. Really delicious! A couple days later we went back for dinner (there were other places we could have gone to, but just had to return). Great service!... More

We stopped by Basil Cafe on a whim and were very pleasantly surprised to be served by the chef himself! Eating on the patio was lovely and the food was fabulous! We'll definitely visit again when we're in the area!
