Really a good spot and very reasonably prices. The sauteed vegetables, ie chinese broccoli, etc, are excellent. Also, the pho is great. Surprised at the negative reviews. Yes, the decor and ambiance is a bit weird, and the service is "subdued," to put it lightly, but Le's is a great value!

I tried the spring rolls to test the quality- how can you go wrong with fried spring rolls? The menu said it had ground pork, vegetables and noodles - it actually had mostly wrapper, all noodles and maybe 1% pork and veggies combined, if there was any at all. The saving grace was the beef pho. It was perfectly warm,... More

Food here is always nice, service is also good. I suggest you try either the #38 rice noodles with grilled beef or cubed steak or pho. Their pineapple fried rice was delicious as well!

But the food was just okay. Crispy rolls had too much crust, the peanut sauce too thick and heavy. Large portions of both pho and bun. Vermicelli in bun was overcooked. Service was attentive, water glasses kept full. My sister thought there might be msg used.

Le's makes my all time favorite Pho - better than any I've had in Chinatown. The portions are huge and it's delicious. My boyfriend and I usually share an appetizer and a large bowl of Pho, and get out for less than $20 with tax and tip. Also, it's the absolute best thing to eat when it's cold out or... More

The food was delicious. The price point was great. This was my first experience with Vietnamese food and I really enjoyed the grilled pork with crispy spring rolls on top of vermicelli. The woman at the door seemed a little unfriendly, but the rest of the staff was great.

I have visited Le's a few times and always enjoyed the food. For the price, you can't go wrong! It is filling, warm, and yummy. I always enjoy getting their pho, and I have also liked the other dishes I have gotten there. In terms of atmosphere, it gets pretty crowded and it can be hard to get around the... More
