Really love Le's Vietnamese in a convenient Brighton Avenue location not far from Boston University. Try the Red Bean milkshake with coconut for dessert. Awesome!

Very good oriental restaurant for lunch. fantastic soups (as a starter or as a main dish). attentive service and mid-range prices. Not fancy - so I would not come on business / official / romantic dinner or lunch - but if your hungry and would like good Asian food in decent price - that's the place

At my son's suggestion for a late meal we wandered into Le's which is located in the mall. It was 9pm and the restaurant was still busy, always a good sign. We were seated almost right away. The service was attentive and friendly - not pushy at all. Two of us ordered Pho and two ordered played meals - everyone... More

The first authentic Vietnamese restaurant I've gone to since I moved to Boston 3 months ago and the pho didn't disappoint. Soup base was spot on and portion is fair.

While in-town for business, a friend suggested coming here and, having never had Vietnamese, I agreed. Perhaps I'm bias, having not tried it before, but their food was DELICIOUS! Our waitress was incredibly sweet and so patient. She showed us the popular items, explained how foods came, sizes, and what was in it. We ordered -way- too much food wanting... More

I lived in the Boston area for 4 years. I live now in Rome and one of the things I miss most is good Vietnamese food, especially pho tai. Le's has the best pho in Boston. It is situated in a cool part of town (near BU), has good prices, no frills but friendly service (they remembered me when I... More

I have been going to this branch of Le's since before it was Le's. The starters ans soups are where they excel. I have had better Vietnamese dishes elsewhere individually, but this restaurant still does a good job, and the prices just can't be beat. Where else can you have an appetizer and entree, tip, and walk out of there... More

My wife and I used to visit this place pretty often as we like Vietnamese’s cuisine a lot. I mean for 20 years, it was even before they got the alcohol license and the space got increased in size. That’s why I decided to write a review. Now we come here much fewer and each time we notice how this... More

We found ourselves with time on our hands and empty tummies before our flight out of Boston and after a week of lobster & haddock in Maine were in the mood for something a little different. We went to Le’s on a whim after doing some quick internet searches for Vietnamese food and it was tasty. Service was decent and... More

Fresh ingredients with lots of flavor. We ordered the "small" soup ( could have fooled me, if this is small, I can imagine the big soup). The small soup was just $7. It was delicious and the meat was fresh and the noodles were plentiful and the soup was great. This alone would have been enough for me and it... More
