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

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

We found a owner rented little place on the water for the weekend, after a business trip to Seattle. We explored and enjoyed Langley, ate and shopped a few places there. But we ate about three meals at the Basil. Handy, relaxed, convenient, friendly, good eating.

This restaurant has become a mainstay for our family. Consistency is their order of the day. You will be pleased with the healthful food offered on the Basil Cafe menu. Food is always served fresh and hot. Basil's soup is wonderful!

We always have a great meal and the price is right as is the setting. They offer special meals on certain days like sushi or "Benihana" style cooking on the grill outside in the summer. A good place for families, couples or singles.
