“Love this restaurant!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

The chef is so delightful - the food is wonderful - fresh and beautifully presented. The prices are so fair, especially wine for $5 per glass! Its so fun to sit out on the deck and listen to the beautiful music too, when the weather is warm. A walk through the gorgeous nursery next door is really fun after lunch here too. One of our favorite restaurants on Whidbey Island!

“Takeout Treat”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

The eclectic mix of Asian menu items are delightful. After a full day of chores we chose takeout rather than restaurant dining. The shrimp salad rolls were crisp & fresh. We appreciate that each dish is uniquely sauced (not one-sauce-suits-all). We enjoyed the green beans with pork, the curried chicken (over brown rice), and general Tso's chicken. The Basil Cafe als offers sushi one evening a month. A culinary delight on South Whidbey island.

“Great find”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

This is a fantastic Pan Asian place. Lots of Vietnamese and Thai influence but with a little Chinese thrown in. The fresh rolls are fantastic and the Pho is a specialty. Try the chef's special. They even have Dim Sum on Sundays and Teppan Yaki tables in the summer.

“owner seems to be kind of rude and treats wait staff poorly!”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Girlfriend and I ate there the other day, been there several times! Food there is pretty good , but after what we experienced that time we will never return again. The owner was treating the poor girl waiting on us horrible , it was obvious she was frustrated as hell even though doing a great job ! When I went to pay bill he rudely handed me credit card receipt. Anyways enough said, try it for yourself and hopefully you don't have the experience we did. thanks
