I was looking to eat something relatively light and came across Basho-An. The restaurant is relatively small and hence I took a seat facing the counter where the chefs prepare the food. I ordered some Maki and it was quite nice. I finished off the evening with a sorbet. Nice food, nice experience

A very disappointing dinner unfortunately, after reading good things about Basho-An. Starting with the manager telling us we 'can get a better table next time we come', it went down hill from there. We all had the Sushi menu, which started well with the Japanese starters and ended well with the desert variation. Unfortunately in between is not what I... More

My daughter and I had Hinamatsuri lunch and Teriyaki salmon yesterday. Everything was fresh and very delicious. The price is high, but worth it. The only thing that I did not like was the tea. The second cup of tea was free, but I had to ask twice before I got it, and it was not hot.

It's impossible to export excellent Japanese cuisine. This restaurant run entirely by Japanese does what you can reasonably expect in a city like Freiburg. It serves a few dishes done well, the quality and the (rather small selection of fish for the sashimi is as good as you can expect in a place far from the coast. Sushi is prepared... More

We like Japanese food and i eat it all over the world. This restaurant is over priced. I would say the quality is middle class nothing to dream about. I wish they are not so greedy with making it so expensive. Also they need more selection of dishes. As the selection was limited.

The sushi was absolutely fantastic! And just as outstanding and friendly was the service we received as a party of four plus a little baby. They are extremely family friendly. Thank you very much!

this is a real japanese kitchen with not only sushi, but also cooked stuff. Very good and very expensive. So i enjoyed it so much, but will be there only once in a quarter (traveling for business).

The food was average in this restaurant. Portions were small and extremely expensive. Definitely not worth the money. The worst part of our experience was when we asked for tap water and we were served 4 tall glasses of luke-warm tap water (including 1 for my 4 year old daughter). And when we got the bill, we were charged 6.00€... More

Very good Japanese restaurant offering excellent food ranging from Sushi and Tempura to Kobe beef. Quite expensive, but worth the gastronomic experience for special occasions.

Beautiful, cozy place with kind and helpful Staff. We had different kinds of sushi and some appetizers with house wine. Can not say that sushi was unforgettable. But not bad , either. It's a bit overpriced.
