We always return to Basilic when we're in the area. Upon arriving, we were told we'd have a 45 min. wait but were seated in about 10 min. We love their spring rolls, the best we've ever had! Chicken curry had an excess of potatoes and liquid. Seafood stir fry was ordered omitting calamari but... read more

If you are timid and dare not try Vietnamese food, try this place. While the setup is not typical Vietnamese, the food is very good. We were surprised how good and authentic it is when the food came. Try it, even you are not from Vietnam, the place is very westernized. We like it.

I simply couldn't make up my mind what to order here-the choices of excellent food was simply overwhelming(in a good way!). There are dozens of immaculate presentations-fresh, spicy and groaningly delicious! Have a frosty bevy at the bar while you wait for your takeout. Fast, friendly service too.Enjoy.

The atmosphere isn't much, but the food is good. I ordered, once again, a noodle bowl with chicken, rice noodles, and vegetables. It was very tasty. Service was very good. The atmosphere leaves much to be desired. There's nothing interesting inside to look at. The view out the picture windows is of a busy highway. The background music playing while... More

I've been a fan of this restaurant for more than five years. Last night, we arrived to find no line and tables available. I thought, great! We ordered, and the green papaya salad appetizer was mediocre. Hum..... Then the Shaking Beef arrived. I doubt it was filet. I gave up trying to discreetly spit it out. No way was it... More

Went there last nite and I had the chicken curry which was pretty good. They cooked it to order and exactly the way I wanted it... Which was great! Unfortunately the place is small and if you are there when there is a group, you cannot hear yourself think! There was a table of about 15 very loud young adults... More

First impression was bad, because I thought the smell of the restaurant was gross. The shrimp chips they bring everyone were gross, too, unless you like eating cardboard. We tried both of the sauces on the table with the chips, but they were both too spicy. Good thing their drink Happy Hour lasts until 6pm, because we needed 2/1 drinks... More

My wife & I stumbled upon this little gem about 4 years ago on a vacation north to Ft. Lauderdale (We live in the Keys). I had never had, but always wanted to try Vietnamese food. My wife had had the pleasure of eating Vietnamese while living in Houston & LA, but I was not so lucky. We started with... More
