“Very good!”
Reviewed July 26, 2011

First time to Basho. Gourmet food! Everything was Delicious!
We would love to come back again.

The place was fancy, and their food was nice and good!
Especially sushi rolls and scallops!! Very unique taste.

You should not miss their cool Martini menu. They have a lot!

Excellent for a romantic night.

“Hit and miss”
Reviewed June 16, 2011

If scallops are fresh definetly order. I've had bad scallops here and found out after they were frozen. Service is not attentive and slow.

“Great food, plan to spend some money”
Reviewed May 13, 2011

Had a wonderful filet mignon and split an appetizer with a business colleague. Amazing flavors and very tender steak, cooked to perfection. Try the Cantonese Lobster if it's available. Overall good experience, but plan to spend CAD 30+.

“Great Food and Atmosphere”
Reviewed April 9, 2011

My boyfriend and I went here during Christmas and it was amazing. The salmon tartare was amazing, and we had a variety dish to share. It's a bit more expensive than Sun Sushi and Asian taste, but the food is just as good or better, and the atmosphere is amazing and the service was great. Great for a date.

An excellent place for casual fine-dining. Sushi starters are awesome. Bring back the caribou...
