First Review by shesh

Nice place to grab lunch - Edit

Very clean, posted menu, and little 'v's around the other vegan items in the menu. I had the falafel plate which was very filling, rice, falafel, bread and a salad. Everything was delicious! I especially like the rice and the salad, which I would totally get again.

The falafel was a little greasy however. I'm writing this post falafel and feeling kind of ew and pretty dern full.

---update-
Returned today as an emergency meal because it's so close to my work but once again have a upset stomach afterwards, I got the grilled veg and salad with rice.

Pros: Clean +++, Clearly marked vegan food, Very lovely staff

Cons: Little greasy

Posted vegan menu! - Edit

The inside has a posted menu that is slightly different from their printed menu and what appears online.

They have a special Vegan section listing the following items that are/can be made vegan: falafel ($4.49), koshary -- a mix of rice pilaf, chickpeas, onions, and elbow noodles ($6.49), moussaka without cheese ($6.49), moussaka combo with rice ($7.99), and the option to add hummus or baba ghanouj. They offer regular or whole wheat pitas.

They also offer a variety of fun drinks: vitality juices, mango juice, and various sodas from the soda pop shoppe (grape, root beer, orange).

The falafel was slightly heavy on the onion, and they were out of whole wheat pitas, but otherwise it was great.

Pros: Vegan menu, Tasty, Reasonable prices

Cons: Slowish service

Basilique is a great restaurant - Edit

I love the pizzas at Basilique too - thin crust, fresh ingredients. All of their vegetarian pizzas are tasty. I like the falafels too but make sure to mention that you like them not overly crispy (read "cooked until hard"). They'll listen to your request and will answer your questions about vegetarian concerns. Located in a pleasant part of town, Westdale, close to interesting shops, including a great independent bookstore across the street. Basilique is patronized by university students, area residents and Westdale shoppers, nice mix....

Pros: pleasant, clean place, dynamite vegetarian pizzas, great location

Cons: sometimes falafels are overcooked

Why get Pizza Pizza? - Edit

Basilique is a great restuarant centrally located in Westdale. Free delivery to some parts of Westdale. Will make pizzas with any toppings and sauces, and my custom "no cheese" was SO GOOD. Everything is made fresh, so it is sometimes a little slow, but it's worth it.

Pros: flexible kitchen
