Basho is the first modern Japanese brasserie to hit Boston, serving the freshest and most high-quality ingredients and sushi (flown in daily from around the world). With a variety of seating options—from communal tables, a private dining “cocoon” and intimate corners to a sushi bar, raw bar and sleek, wraparound liquor bar—Basho pulses with the raw energy of the city from opening to close.

Here's what people say after redeeming their Nift gift.
Great sushi. Love the atmosphere and decor. It is located right in the heart of fenway area as well. The only downside is parking, which could be difficult depending on the days and hours.
Loved the specialty rolls!
It was delicious

Absolutely delicious, and excellent service!

Had the Bento box and a lunch special. Absolutely delicious.
The service and waitstaff are so very friendly and attentive, and the food is excellent, too.
Really delicious sushi and the house green tea was superb. Jason was helpful in sharing recommendations and helping me with food allergies. Thank you!
Really lovely service!
The atmosphere is great! I was a little hesitant as it was quite empty when I was there at 8pm on a Wednesday. The food was nothing to write home about, but good. I would like to see the spicy tuna with less tempura filler. Hoping to try a few other dishes before making a final decision! Their dim sum menu is small but covers the basics.
Fresh ingredients and a wonderful atmosphere
Great service, yummy sushi. Thanks!

We loved our lunch at Basho! The sushi was delicious, the service superb and the atmosphere was great!
Great service with exceptional food and drink. The atmosphere is warm, in relatively dim lighting, making for a nice calm environment, even with the background music and noise of other patrons.
More like Chinese than Japanese. Good location.
Cool vibe, awesome service at the bar, delicious food, reasonably priced. Winner!
Very good tamago. Sweet potato roll was interesting but good.
Great food and service
I got the chicken teriyaki which was enjoyable, however the chicken could have been a bit more moist. The sauce was delicious.
Delectable Asian fusion cuisine. Really enjoyed the bowls which incidentally were also quite affordable.
The food was good and the environment was chill
The waitress I had was extremely friendly and attentive, and the inside of the restaurant the decor was really impressive!
Great food! Staff was not very friendly; they seemed annoyed at unaware of how to apply Nift certificate. Waitress was just doing her job, no smiles whatsoever.
It was great! Thanks
Great sushi x
Delicious food and great service!
I love this restaurant… Sushi is fresh, creative and the service is great.
Beautiful space and beautifully presented dishes! It is a bit pricey, but considering the location and the level of service, definitely worthwhile if you’re in the Fenway.
I really liked it. The customer service was great and the food was delicious. Is near my job so now is in my list of places to go. Thank you!
great sushi roll!
Food quality is good. But pork dumping is so so.
Good menu and helpful staff. Friendly manager. Thank you!
Excellent fresh sushi and delicious drinks. The wait staff is friendly and informative.
Really enjoyed the shumai and spicy edamame.
Basho is a pretty good Asian fusion restaurant. The service was great as well as the ambiance!
Very enjoyable dinner
Very good ambience
Great food, service was a little slow but very pleasant.
Great location, great atmosphere, friendly staff, and let’s not forget about their huge variety of sushi and cuisine in general. Loved it!
Very good food and nice atmosphere.
We love basho 5
It was great!
Amazing presentation, super fresh and delightful staff
I really enjoyed the ambience of Basho, including the jazz band. The food was delicious and substantial, the only downside being that it was quite pricey for what I got. I would recommend a night at Basho as a treat.
We loved Basho, the crispy shrimp was to die for! The server recommended it to us and we got it and it was amazing. We also got the Nookie roll-- and it was one of the best rolls of sushi I've had. Ambience was great and servers were nice. Also minimal wait time on a Friday night.
Service was good/quick. The food was good- Not the best sushi or soup dumplings I’ve ever had
Keep basho in here!! Wonderful service and food.
Good service and good food
Such a great experience having the noodle bowl.....so tasty. Was ready to order a 2nd to take home
We had a wonderful time at Basho! Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable of the menu. The food was amazing - especially the chicken wings with sweet chili sauce. The sushi was delicious and tasted super fresh. I will definitely come back and recommend this place to friends!
Craft beers were so cheap!! Great atmosphere. Good food.
Great sushi...lighting is a bit bright and music and paint-night bring the overall atmosphere down.
We enjoyed our meal at Basho. Good service and the food was tasty. Bento box was on point (though the chicken wasn't fantastic). Donburi beef bowl was excellent. Recommended.
We were accommodated with our order of avocado rolls since we don’t eat fish. They were very good. More veg menu options are always appreciated though!
Absolutely delicious, fresh and beautiful sushi! I can’t wait to visit again!
My sister loved her dim sum. I really like how many items came with my Bento box. We had a great time.
Great food. The wait was a bit long, but overall great experience.
Delicious! Basho had great lunch options, and seating was plentiful so I felt like I could make it a last-minute lunch decision. Filling Bento Box option!
Haven't been to BASHO in over TWO YEARS. Thanks to Nift I was able to go there again and be reminded of how amazing their food is. Thank you!
Great menu; extremely fresh fish
Jessie was very helpful. We had the soft shell crab, shrimp tempura and sweet potato tempura with seaweed salad. Would definitely return
Basho was wonderful! The food was delicious and the service was excellent! I would definitely go back there again since this was my first time there!
The food was ok. The waitress asked me if I want brown rice or white rice and I chose brown. At the end she charged me additional $2 for brown rice on the top of $17 lunch. I cannot complain much after using Nift (which was a good deal) but I wish she has told me about additional charge. Best Michel
The shrimp tempura was delicious!
Much too expensive but the food was good
It was great!
Yummy food and drinks! Friendly service
Great staff and food and service
Great quality food and service!
Excellent food and great service, would definitely go back!
Good service. Nice atmosphere. Small portions.
Great customer service Clean Quick Fresh
The bartender/waiter was super friendly and professional. Food was excellent, and GM Brian went out of his way to come over to greet and thank me after my meal.
Great food and incredible service!
A little on the pricier side but the place was very nice, had good service, and the food was excellent!
So glad I tried Basho. Went for lunch and had the bento box. The portions were generous, well prepared with excellent presentation. Will definitely return.
