Really enjoyed the sushi such as the paradise roll. Friendly, relaxed atmosphere with limited staff working to cover all tables pretty well.

Our foodie group came here with 15 people and the service was accommodating as usual, as we've been here many times. Typical of many Asian restaurants in the area, it as a combination of cuisines. Many Americans like sushi, but there are not many Japanese in the area. Laotian/Thai is the largest Asian group and their restaurants often have sushi,... More

Went to Basil late on a Thursday night. There were a few people at the bar and some people getting take out. The menu is extensive including traditional Chinese dishes as well as many exotic items. I tried the duck with the basil ginger sauce and it was delicious. My wife ordered some spring rolls which were incredible and a... More

We had lunch at this restaurant and the only wish I had was that we lived closer and could visit it more often. Clean, good service, and excellent Thai and sushi food. We got there at 11:30 am on a Friday, and only one other table taken. Fifteen minutes later the restaurant was packed to the gill. Not sure if... More

With a place that serves Thai, Indian and Japanese nothing gets done with excellence. Tonight we had Thai but it kind of tasted Indian. I know the difference because I lived in Thailand and traveled to India several times. For true Indian I would go next door to Bombay Bistro. Don't know about the sushi and I most likely won't...

I got the cashew chicken with medium spice level. I definitely could have gone with hot spice level though, not much heat at all, but now I know for next time. Good meal and good portion. Had about 1/3 of my meal to take home.

Great food, great service, and convenient location make this one of our favorite spots in the Brentwood area. I'm not sure if he's the owner or the general manager but the gentleman who greets us every time we come in recognizes us and is glad to see us. What a novel idea – welcome you to his establishment! The sushi... More

I love the Red Curry, Panag Curry with combination (chicken, port and shrimp). I usually sit at the bar. The rating system for the level of spice is 1 - 5 ... 5 being native (super hot/spicy) I love the 4 - spicy without burning my taste buds. Sushi is wonderful - anything you get is cooked to perfection. They... More

Great flavor in the roll. I felt that it was not the best value, but the product was fresh and really great flavors. Very good food and service. I'm happy with the visit.
