There’s no such thing as a bad meal from Basil Asian Bistro. As proof, the restaurant, which has locations in downtown Canton and Wooster, is still humming, with customers eating in and ordering carryout.

There’s no such thing as a bad meal from Basil Asian Bistro.

As proof, the restaurant, which has locations in downtown Canton and Wooster, is still humming, with customers eating in and ordering carryout.

Basil offers a wide range of Asian cuisine, including classic Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese and Thai dishes, such as hand-rolled sushi and other seafood entrees, pad thai, miso soup, moo goo gai pan, stir fry and four kinds of rice.

Vegetarian dishes also are available.

Though a number of other downtown Canton restaurants have struggled and even closed because of the pandemic, Basil’s location at 585 Market Avenue N has managed to stay afloat, thanks in large part to good food, reasonable prices and fast and friendly service.

Carryout takes about 10 to 15 minutes. Orders also may be placed through Doordash.

For more information, visit BasilAsianRestaurant.com or call 330-452-3888 in Canton, or at 330-601-0885 in Wooster. Major credit cards are accepted. Closed Sundays.
