Good pho and other Vietnamese choices. Fresh, healthy food at a fair cost. Below average atmosphere and limited beverage choices. Good for a quick, yummy lunch.

We went to Basil Cafe for the first time in several months. For me. The wait staff was so helpful. She even remembered I had ordered brown rice the last time. I was in and wanted to know if I wanted it again instead of white rice. There are good vegetarian options which is very important. To me.

I love this cafe for their Pho. Customer service has always been great. Prices are reasonable and you get a lot of food, I always feel like I need to roll out cause I'm stuffed :)

We patronize this cafe about twice a month. We have always been thrilled with our cuisine! From fresh rolls, soups, curries, prawns and Shaking Beef, all have been memorable. Our service however, is spotty at best. Drinks are often extremely slow in coming. Our soup served after our meal on one occasion. I am extremely understanding and patient when the... More

We have been here 3 times now. Each time trying something new. We have never been disappointed, and actually hummed through our meal. For sushi lovers (I'm not) they have that on Wednesdays, but you gotta order the day before. Don't hesitate to try Basil Cafe out! It's relish!

Our favorite restaurant on Whidbey Island. Great service, consistently fabulous dishes! From pho to curry chicken and specialty seafood specials, the Basil Cafe is highly recommended. My husband's favorite is the sizzling Hot Summer Beef. Open year-round, it is a taste sensation. You can't miss it! Just off highway in Bayview area. Good choice of wines too.

During nice weather you can sit on the patio. I had the spicy orange chicken, yum!!!! The price is reasonable, so why not add a glass of wine, and we did!
