We had water cress soup which was clear, with all the wonderful greens like cilantro and basil. it was delicious. than we had the inevitable spring roll- great.... More

The service is prompt, food was consistently excellent each time we returned over a year, and the ambience is great for business meetings.

This was a nice, quiet setting for a wonderful meal. Nothing fancy, but the food was really good. Loved the artwork as well as the food.

While in Boston on a business trip, I took the opportunity to try out many of the eateries in the Coolidge Corner district. While this was one of the better ones, it wasn't great. The service was prompt and the food was tasty but the chicken pho is pretty bland compared to others, which have not compromised on authenticity. Fresh... More

I was introduced to Vietnamese food a little over a year ago now, and I love it! I came here to try their version of Pho and Bun, and was pleasantly surprised. I took my friend here shortly after, and she soon loved it as well. Pho Lemongrass has now become our place to go about once or twice a... More

I visited with my wife on a Sunday afternoon around 5 PM. We found easy parking which is always so difficult around Coolidge Corner. The service was very good, we ordered tofu triangles, different kinds of spring rolls and pho. Spanish wine was a good pairing. We really liked our choices. Food had a wonderful combination of condiments and was... More

A dark and rainy early evening. The food was plain - not well spiced, not over spiced, not hot, not cold. Service good, not great.

We were very pleased with both our meals, good atmosphere, good service, good prices. The restaurant was full of locals, always a good sign. We will return.

We came here on a cold winter's night for a big bowl of pho (soup). Quite good and most importantly, it was not salty. Same thing with the chicken and the veggie dishes we ordered. At the same time, the taste was slightly bland so this would be my only complaint. There are many ways to season without salt and... More
