Ordered a Banyan and a Foreger bowl. The acai was decent although can get better tasting acai elsewhere. The downfall is that the bowls were mostly loaded with fruit and granola with just a little acai at the bottom. For the price ($11 for a...More

Visited today and was blown away by the choice. Super popular so be prepared to wait unless you arrive at the open (8am mon-sat and 9am on sun) but well worth it and also reasonably priced. Beware the Large is really quite large

We read about this place on trip advisor and I must say it was one of the best Açaí bowls I have had!!! It’s a little hidden and hard to find but make sure u add this into the trip. I could eat one literally...More

Easy to miss this place: It’s on the second floor of a tiny building, in a hotel parking lot alley. Basik is truly a hidden gem...hidden right in the middle of downtown Kona, that is! Great place to cool down with a tasty smoothy or...More

This place is right down town. The service is friendly and the food was quality. There are several bowls to choose from. I only wish I upgraded to a large b/c it looked twice the size for only a few dollars more.

Based on the reviews I thought this place would be great, I was a bit disappointed. The bowl was good but not great and definitely nothing like you can get at Barefoot Zone. Barefoot Zone's bowls are so much bigger.

It did not disappoint. The space is tiny and the vibe is righteous. I went back the very next day to get another one. I am forever an Acai bowl lover because of this. Thank you!

A great place in an unexpected location run by such nice young men. Incredibly popular. I was fortunate to find a seat just vacated in this minuscule area. The Forger Acai bowl was delicious. A place to frequent whenever I return to Kona.
