Basil's is quite popular, not only for sit-down, but also for take out. The menu is a bit limited, but it's a small restaurant. Some dishes may be regional specialties, such as the salt fish. Decent sized portions, but nothing fancy.

Restaurant with efficient service located around the corner from the Marriott. Avoid the dumplings, which had too much dough around the filling. The noodle soup was somewhat satisfying, not memorable. I ranked as high as a three because price is very reasonable.

Restaurant was next to our hotel and had good reviews so I tried it. Had the Vietnamese beef noodle soup and the pork buns appetizer. Huge portions, good quality, waitress was super friendly and I walked out for less than $10(minus tip). Win!

Came to tour Yale University and came across this little place. The server was quiet but friendly. Our food came quickly and was delicious. It is always a bonus when the prices are inexpensive too. VERY good experience!

We stumbled onto this restaurant and decided to give it a try. We ordered two udon soups, one with roasted pork and the other with teriyaki salmon. They were huge portions and delicious! Chewy noodles, fresh bok choy, and delicious, plentiful pork/salmon. The mango juice...More
