Erica was up for Tofu Pad Thai while the rest of us were ready for SUSHI TIME!
It's a cute little restaurant and were were enjoying the atmosphere. There's ample parking and it's a nice place. But now - the food!
As I said, one of our party had the Tofu Pad Thai and I have to say - it was great! I'm not a big tofu fan but I tasted a little cube and it was good! Nice and crispy.
The other 3 of us ordered sushi - 2 got the sushi combos but I was adventurous and ordered a couple of rolls.
The photo above is mine - I had a Tiger Roll and a Spicy Tuna Roll. They were really tasty and I definitely enjoyed every bite.
So - the food is solid at Sweet Basil. We all enjoyed our dishes. I have to say though - the price was a bit high for sushi. My bill for 2 rolls was $20...
The biggest issue - which I'm saving for the end - was timing and service. They were extremely slow and all four of us got our meals at different times. To me - that's just silly - we're 4 people on a Wednesday at lunch and it wasn't busy. The pad thai came at least 15 minutes before anything else! Then my sushi came and then 10 minutes later - sushi #2 and 5 minutes later - sushi #3.
I'm going to give Sweet Basil a 2.5 stars mainly because of service and price. It was okay - but RuThai's in Mt Lookout is quicker and more affordable and I like their rolls better.
