Reviews for Pho Basil

I went with 2 friends on a Friday night. Warning: they don't seat you until your entire party is there, so plan ahead! I ordered the tai pho, since I'm not a fan of tripe or tendon. The broth was very savory and flavorful! I added a drizzle of hoisin sauce, and it tasted delicious! I was disappointed by the amount of meat that was in the soup. I also felt that the waitress was really rushing us/pushing us to leave when we hadn't even been sitting there for long. Overall, we full review
I am sorry, but I have to write a bad review for this place. Our table of three, no one liked their meal. We got bun bo hue. I asked what the waitress thought of the bun bo hue and asked if it was "really" good. She was super excited and told us yes. It was not good. There was no depth in flavor to the broth. It should have been more beefy more lemongrass and there was hardly any spice. Another coworker got tai pho and requested vegetables to go with it. The soup came but full review

Came here tonight to try out this place. Very happy we did. The service was efficient, attentive and really good despite the place being very busy and will a lot of takeout orders too. Food was good too, the Com Heo (grill pork with lemongrass and spices over rice) was really nice. The broth for the Dac Biet was nicely sweet ( savory sweet, Not sugary sweet) . I would recommend this place and we will definitely revisit the next time we are in Boston
