A bit over-rated

Went there with the missus and both of us found the food just too salty and over priced. Not my cup of tea!

Every serious food lover within driving distance of Basho owes himself or herself the experience of dining on Chef Tak Ishiwata's superb food.

A favourite starter is his salmon parfait which I described as "an eye-catching seafood presentation in a brandy snifter. The bottom of the glass was covered with salmon tartare, and then a layer of aioli followed by black flying fish roe to the depth of about half-an-inch. More salmon tartare followed, capped by a dollop of aioli and then, side-by-side, orange and black flying fish roe. This was accompanied by a handful of the lightest, crispiest fried wontons I have ever tasted."

This is one of the best meals we had in St Johns. We started with cocktails and I had the blueberry basil martini, ok, I had two..delicious. For an appetizer, we shared the crab and corn croquettes ...wonderful. For the main we each ordered the special which was filet, mussels, tempura vegetables and truffle fries...fantastic. Sorry we were so full... more
