Fast service lots of open space. Nice interior aesthetic

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.

Stephanie, October 29, 2019

Really lovely service!

Eleanor, October 24, 2019

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.

Amazing presentation, super fresh and delightful staff

Ann, April 22, 2019

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.

James, April 7, 2019

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.

Monica, April 7, 2019

Service was good/quick. The food was good- Not the best sushi or soup dumplings I’ve ever had

Kathryn, February 27, 2019

Craft beers were so cheap!! Great atmosphere. Good food.

Chelsea, February 23, 2019

Great is a bit bright and music and paint-night bring the overall atmosphere down.

Adam, February 20, 2019

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.

Jesse, January 26, 2019

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!

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!

Sujin, September 20, 2018

Jonathan, August 13, 2018

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!

Kai, August 4, 2018

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
