We really had a great experience at Basa last night. The food and service were excellent! My wife and I split the salad of the day. She had a shrimp entree and I had scallops. All the dishes were delicious. The wine was a very nice Pinot Noir. Desert was chocolate cake! Our friends were as satisfied.

Last night our family had a great dinner at Basa. The Ahi tuna with the bok choy was exquisite. The service was superb. It's definitely worth a detour if you are any where near Louisville.

I had an early evening meal there this week and it was a wonderful experience. The waiter was helpful with menu choices, the timing of the meal was spot on and the food was really good! This is a great place to get in out of the muggy Louisville heat during the summer. There is no patio but no worries!... More

The shaking beef is literally one of the best things I have ever eaten, ever. This place cannot get 5 stars because it is way too noisy, very pricy, and smells awful. But the food was so insanely good that I will still go back.

We had not been to Basa in some time but have always liked it. Last night was not exception. My husband and I raved about every course. The squash soup was perfectly balanced, not overly sweet, like it can be. The shaking beef was so tender and delicious and my husband's tuna was the best tuna he had ever eaten,... More

Moved to L'ville 2yrs ago...have been searching for a good Vietnamese restaurant. Basa was recommended by a Vietnamese friend and we were not disappointed! We felt welcomed the moment we walked in. Our server made some fabulous suggestions for dinner. The Imperial Rolls were delicious and the aloe Vera cocktail was surprisingly refreshing. We tried the tuna and scallops: really... More

We took a long weekend in Louisville over a holiday. Based on our innkeeper's recommendation I made reservations for Basa. It was an outstanding restaurant all around. From the moment we stepped in, the host stand was friendly and wanted to ensure that we had the quiet table we requested. Also, I had made a mistake with the online reservation,... More

Basa is one of those places that if you don't know about it you're really missing out. The food here is nothing but amazing. The French Vietnamese food is incredibly delicious and beautifully presented. Every time we go we're reminded why this is one of our favorite restaurants. The comfortable, sophisticated dining room and bar are very welcoming as are... More

Decided to try a new restaurant and ww are so glad that we did! Have not had good Vietnamese since our visit to Chicago months ago. We were very pleased with everything we tried. Salad, Spring rolls, salt & pepper shrimp & eggplant were all beautifully presented. Service was exceptional, interior is relaxing & nicely decorated. I will definitely recommend... More
