“BetterBelieveQuail”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

Traveled to Appleton for a business trip and our colleagues suggested Basil Cafe. Wasn't really hungry so I tried an appetizer, Crispy Quail. Beyond my surprise the dish was delicious. If you feel like freezing in January/February, take a trip to Appleton Wiscousin and try out the little bird.

“Tasty food, but skimpy on the portions”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

I have been here twice and while the food is good the portions are rather small for entrees and the soups such as the Pho are very skimpy on the meats. $11 for a large Pho which is broth and maybe .50 worth of rice noodles and a few bites of meat. The crepes are delicious but again a bit skimpy for the price. The entrees such as curries etc. are rather small for the price as well. I like the food but I am not tempted to go back as it is just not worth the price. The service is very prompt and friendly.

“Great Place for a Gluten Free/ Vegan Meal”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

Love this place! I am gluten free and Vegan and they had many options and were very aware of keeping gluten out of my meal. I ordered the Veggie Spring Rolls to start and then have had 2 different dishes for a meal. SO yummy! The staff is very friendly and it is a very cool place. It has a wonderful atmosphere. Outside of building doesn't match the inside? It is my favorite new restaurant in Appleton. Definitely check them out.

This is an outstanding restaurant. The food is great, it is a great value, the location is fine and the staff is great. This is a must see restaurant if you are in the Green Bay/Fox Valley area.

“So delicious!”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

Amazing food, good service, nice atmosphere. We had the veggi spring roles, Vietnamese crepe (veg version), vegan pho, and a noodle dish with wide rice noodles and veggies. Oh, and the sticky rice with mango and coconut cream for dessert. Everything was delicious, definitely do not miss a meal here when you're in the Appleton area!
