Lighting is terrible, food is average, service was ok. There is nothing special about this place. It needs a re vamp to compete with today's current market

We had a family meal which was very good, we had a mixture of dishes, very plentiful and extremely tasty. The staff were welcoming and polite, and we look forward to our next visit, it's well worth a visit.

Another great meal at Sweet Basil. Their wonton and vegetable soup is the best. If you enjoy Chinese food, you won't find better then this excellent restaurant.
