Great variety of unique foods with a few dishes for the less adventurous diner. As is common for many Louisville restaurants the spices tend to be underutilized. One suggestion is to ask for an increase in spice level. You can also ask for additional spicey...More

Returned to Basa with an out of town guest and I described it to him as americanized vietnamese. It was terrific! We all shared the appetizer special - mussels with coconut curry and they were delicious. He and my husband had the scallops and raved...More

small and cozy, beautifully decorated, best food in town, though reviewers seem to forget this place when ranking...the food is fresh and delicious, with really interesting menu choices that change frequently.

Four of us recently had a fantastic dinner at Basa. Service was excellent, and the Asian/Fusion cuisine was delicious. We'd all ordered the evening specials; nothing off the menu. I'd started with a spicy soup with mussels, which reminded me of a Manhattan-Style clam chowder,...More

I LOVE this restaurant. I have stopped in without a reservation a few times (not recommended, because it fills up) and managed to get a spot at the bar. I highly recommend this, as Kyle the bartender is top-notch, and they have a small bites...More
