Come meet the new generation of the Ly dynasty. Basil 1791 shares the same roots as Ricky Ly, who was the first to bring an upscale Asian restaurant to Stark County, Ohio nearly three decades ago.

Basil Asian Bistro, in Canton, is run by the Ly family. Tony’s father, Luong Ly, is the head chef and the creative mind behind most of the family’s closely held recipes. The success of the downtown Canton restaurant encouraged the Ly family to open a second Basil location in Green, OH. Tony’s uncle, Kenny Ly, is the Green location’s manager and prepares much of the sushi.

Basil 1791 opened its doors in downtown Hamilton in 2018. Our menu features items from many different styles of Asian cuisine including Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Korean, and Vietnamese. We also boast a full sushi bar, a variety of Asian inspired cocktails, and a wide selection of draft beer.

We take great pride in being able to celebrate the extensive variety of Asian food with our community. We use a combination of the Ly’s family recipes, fresh ingredients, and traditional techniques to ensure that each and every dish that we share with our guests is of the highest possible quality.

In addition to our full-service restaurant, we also have a spacious second floor to meet all of your private party or banquet needs.
