Basil Asian Bistro is a contemporary Pan-Asian restaurant placing emphasis on freshness and food quality. The sushi menu, created by the classically trained Nobuo Kobayashi, would best be described as elegant, yet modern Japanese cuisine. Come visit one of Franklin's local independent establishments, and escape the norm.
There's no need to read a menu at Bodeli Sushi, a Franklin restaurant featured on 10Best. Instead, just turn your eyes to the rotating belt that carries dishes of sushi, dumplings, and Asian appetizers around the sushi bar. Diners select whichever plates appeal to them, tallying the cost by noting each plate's color-coded ring. The eatery's chef will also soon be introducing Korean dishes to the menu.
Sun Cafe’s chefs handpick produce from pesticide-free gardens, and they ship in fresh fish and meat daily for their vast menu of Thai, Japanese, and Asian delicacies. The chefs tuck seafood into more than 20 traditional sushi rolls and 17 house-specialty rolls at the sushi bar, creating such rolls as the Sunset Boulevard—steamed lobster, crab, shrimp, and avocado topped with mango and caviar. They realize that many people are not enthusiastic about eating raw fish, so they include many cooked sushi options on the menu too.
They also simmer Thai curries and udon noodle bowls and plate Chinese classics such as general tso’s chicken. In addition to the familiar Pan-Asian dishes, the menu introduces more obscure offerings such as crispy-duck noodle soup, steamed cod, and deep-fried air.
The culinary artisans at Phuket Thai Restaurant & Sushi sling a menu of Thai cuisine and sushi rolls as colorful as the eatery's yellow and red walls. Coconut milk?infused curries and noodle dishes share plate real estate with house specialties such as roasted duck curry and spicy catfish, as well as more than 25 sushi rolls packed with fresh seafood and vegetables. Steaming pans also sizzle gluten-free and vegetarian entrees, and chefs gladly accommodate requests for varying levels of spice and sentience. Asian artwork dots the walls throughout the dining room, lending to an overall vibe of soothing east-Asian calm.
