Came in for supper off the plane. Attentive staff in a nice clean if functional dining room. Quickly seated. And the food came within three minutes of being ordered. Vegetables were fresh and vibrant and pho was spicy and tasty as advertised. Highly recommend for pho fix.

The pho here was very good. Authentic vietnamese. Not spotless clean but still 4 stars because of how delicious it is. I've come here for lunch and dinner a few times and never been disappointed.

Was told about the ultimate sub by a foodie friend...it was decent but not the best we've had by any means. It was a bit spicy but nothing crazy...in our opinion, it definitely needed some more sate sauce. The bun was nice & fresh along with the carrots and cucumber. The salad rolls with peanut sauce were some of the... More

We came here for lunch on a Friday and they where extremely busy we where seated and it took 20 minutes to get menus bu the food arrived quickly and was very tasty and authentic tasting. My husband said his Pho was one of the best he had ever had. Portion sizes are on the smaller side. Would return

I always have the Sate Beef & Spring Rolls when I visit. Food is good price, fast and fresh and I've always found the service to be friendly. Friends have always said good things about the other dishes that they order.

I'm curious about a few things at Basil. Have been coming since the beginning and notice smaller portion of beef saté. Or maybe just the bowl size is larger. The menu says, Vegetarian soup with "beef broth". Does not make sense to me. It's usually half full all the time because they have a good offering but average value in... More

Went here for lunch for some Pho. Found the staff to very helpful and worked very quick. the food was brought out/cooked very quickly as well. Not the best I have had but not the worst either. The place fills up very fast at lunch so get there early.

We go here a couple times a month. The service is always fast and they remember our order since we always order the same thing. They're always friendly, the food is fresh, delicious and well priced. I'd recommend this place to anyone who wants great Vietnamese food.

We stopped here for a late lunch on a Saturday afternoon. The restaurant was about half full. The server was attentive and promptly asked for our order. We had the chicken salad rolls (pretty standard compared to other places), a vermicelli bowl with spring rolls and lemon grass chicken (quite a lot of noodles and less lettuce), and the rare...
