We have ordered three rice noodles and a grilled chicken. Taste was good, especially quality of meat was great. Server was so kind. Good place for lunch!!!!!

Pretty good Pho and a selection of other dishes. Their bubble tea aren't the must best tasting drink. It's just a powdered mixed drink.

Three of us went for a late evening dinner, parking in the 140 East parking garage.We've ben several times before, and I continue to like it. Our choices were Saigon Street Noodles, Grilled Lemongrass Chicken, and Stir-fried Lemongrass Shrimp -- all pleasing. The first two had separate meat(s), leafy green, bean sprouts, etc. on the vermicelli, to be eaten with... More

We go here often. Food is always good. Pho is my favorite, but the summer rolls and the lemongrass pork are good too.

Decent enough Vietnamese lunch food with good enough service. Nothing exceptional but nothing to complain about. Good prices and serving sizes makes for a good value.

We are huge Pho fans and look for the best places every town/city we visit (we travel a lot). Lime and Basil is delicious and since our son attends grad school here, we are in Chapel Hill frequently. We always treat our son and his friends to dinner here - it is incredible and so reasonable! It is hard to... More

The previous time I ordered take away. This time I am able to dine in. I ordered a plate of fresh rolls and a bowl of pho + eyeround + meatball. The fresh rolls were very good. Can taste the fresh shrimps and chicken. The pho bowl looked huge and the meat servings seemed generous. Big letdown though - the... More

The beef pho was pretty good here. Great service, great mango bubble tea. Only problem was that the place was COLD. It was freezing outside and the frequent opening and closing of the front door in this small high turnover place made it uncomfortably cold. We'll wait to return on a warmer day. This place isn't as good as Pho... More

The restaurant is somewhat small, but still well decorated. There may be issues with crowding, but if you go when the surrounding colleges go on break, it isn't a problem. I had pho, but there were tons of other options to choose from, including vegetarian. The pho was delicious, and the hot soup is amazing on a cold winter day.... More
