Absolutely Delicious in Bayview!

Delicious Asian fusion food on Whidbey...My husband and I and another couple had a lovely lunch outside on a sunny summer day. The owner was so charming and interesting to talk with.

I have eaten here several times and am mostly disappointed. The noodle soup is ok. Just had a pork and vegetable dish which was supposed to be in a ginger sauce. Nearest I could tell it was chicken broth with cornstarch on a bunch of celery, carrots and bok choy. No ginger flavor at all. The pork was tender, but... More

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.

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
