“A Neighborhood Foodie Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

A delightful, cozy little neighborhood restaurant great for intimate special occasions requiring excellent cuisine provided by a first-rate chef.

Charming ambiance, no waits for a table, and attentive service.

Great value for cost, especially if fortuitously combined with the occasional GroupOn or LivingSocial promotional vouchers.

“A very special experience - intimate, friendly, and absolutely delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Bashan is the perfect place to celebrate with friends. We've been twice and have been very satisfied and impressed each time. Most recently, three couples went for a birthday dinner. Everyone was thrilled with their choices and we each ate every morsel on our plates. We ordered: halibut, New York steak, lamb loin, the special filet mignon hamburger, spicy octopus, and duck. We took advantage of the corkage fee at $15.00 per bottle. If we had purchased one of their wines off the menu, one corkage fee would have been complimentary. The service was pleasant and very attentive. Because all three ladies were celebrating a birthday, all six of us were given a glass of champagne! We had a wonderful time and will definitely return when we want a special treat!

“Fine dining describes the place correctly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

We were invited to a quiet family dinner at Bashan. A small but cosy place, where we could relax and be served very calmly at a good pace, carry on with the conversation without being continuously disturbed. Our server was very efficient, understood what we wanted and looked after us in a pleasant manner.

“What a great evening!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The restaurant is small, charming and cozy. The wait staff was great, sorry that I don't remember the name of our waiter - he was outstanding. Four of us celebrated a birthday on Saturday night. We ran late because of a taxi problem, but we got the best table in the place. Everything we tried was delicious. The duck, the steak, the special veal and the beef cheek are highly recommended. The salad with fennel was so good and the lobster risotto was excellent. Thanks for such a nice evening to celebrate a birthday.

“deserves the highest rating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

My husband and I have been to this restaurant occasionally since they were newly open. It has been and continues to be excellent. A husband and wife team have made this small intimate restaurant a success by serving the highest quality ingredients, the most incredible flavors, and lovely service a winner by any standards. We shared this on our recent visit with our chef son, who also works at a top rated restaurant, and our daughter for our son's 28th birthday. A big hit with all, and that is no easy feat...........they can't wait to introduce their friends to a destination restaurant that is worth every mile, dollar and calorie just to eat there!
