The crepe is amazing! Pho is really good. They need to have more sauce for it though. They bring out small dishes of sauces. I want the bottle.

Basil Cafe has a great menu and atmosphere. This is one of our favorite restaurants in the area. The food has great flavor and their coconut infused water is refreshing. Have never had any food here we didn’t like. Highly recommend it.

My wife had vegan Pho minus the tofu and plus additional veggies. I had veggies in a light garlic sauce with chicken. We also had the spring roll appetizer. Everything was well prepared and presented. Service was helpful and attentive.
