“Something for everyone!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Taking the family to the Basil House, we were very surprised with the large variety of choices that were available.
Going with 4 children aged between 5 and 15, there was something available for each of them.
The sizes of the portions were very good and filling.
We had 6 entrees, 6 main courses and a side order of fried rice and ate like kings!
The turnaround time from the time of ordering was fantastic.
The premises are licenced with a good variety of beer.
Can BYO wine only.
The average main course is around $10 to $12.
The staff were attentive to our needs and made the children feel very welcome.
We will definitely be returning to this family friendly, well priced establishment.
