An always delicious favorite – I love this place! The pho is good, as are the vermicelli bowls (particularly the shrimp), the catfish in hot pot is so good and lemongrass chicken is as well. The food is fresh and not greasy. I have never had a bad meal at Le's and have been coming for years. The service is fine, sometimes not as attentive when it gets really busy. There are saltwater fish tanks that my kids love to watch (and no, they don't run around screaming.)
Great food and service, but this place is now a daycare center – I used to come to this place all the time. The soups are really great. However, yesterday was the last time I've come there. The problem is, there are lots of kids of various ages running and screaming around the tables, harrassing patrons and parents sit around, pretend it's not happening and not doing anything about it. Neither are the waitstaff who are possibly afraid of discrimination suits. It's been happening a lot lately - not a singular occurrence .
Horrible service, repulsive food, avoid like the plague – The Atrium Mall is a pretty dreadful place for food- stuck between a 90 minute wait for the horror that is Cheesecake Factory, the dull predictability of Bertucci's and the cafe in Border's, we decided to try this Vietnamese restaurant. We should have taken note of the fact the floor was filthy and the menus stained with who-knows-what brown mystery stains- but no, we ploughed on. The summer rolls were ok in that sort of refrigerated for 8 days way- but my beef with broccoli reappeared in my toilet bowl 90 minutes later and my companion's Pho was left swimming in the nasty broth it came in. If it was possible, the service was more atrocious then the food- there is a difference between efficiency and rudeness and we ended up not leaving a tip. I would avoid this place and eating in the mall althogether.
Local Vietnamese restaurant chain delivers inexpensive bowls of pho and filling noodle dishes. – In Short
Many first-time customers of Le's (formerly known as Pho Pasteur) make the mistake of ordering too many dishes, as most entrees are large enough for two. Straightforward pho (noodle soups) prove popular, and the adventurous have many interesting dishes (caramelized catfish, fresh squid with scallions) to choose from. Bowls of vermicelli, topped with grilled meats, shredded lettuce, mint and roasted peanuts, are meals in themselves. Traditional desserts include chilled Asian fruits and creamy rice pudding.
Good, Light, Fresh Vietnamese food – I didnt try the signature Pho noodle soup dish, but the chicken with scallion and ginger was delicious. Servers were friendly and the service was quick!
Average Vietnamese food in the mall... – Stopped by Le's since it's in the hood and I'm big on Vietnamese food. Started off with the cold spring rolls which were decent and then ordered a vietnamese staple, grilled pork/imperial rolls on rice vermicelli. The grilled pork was ok but there wasn't enough. The rolls looked like they may have come from Costco, very dissapointing. Overall decor and prices were decent for the Atrium mall location but not worth it unless they bump up the food quality/portion sizes. I've eaten Vietnamese all over the West coast and in DC, I'm guessing we can do better than Le's in the Boston area.
this atrium mall restaurant is very good place to go. already went 2 times for lunch with colleagues(they liked my choice of this place and were also satisfied with food). I tried plain fried rice(with all kinds of meat), sauteed chicken with curry sauce(****). both are awesome and will go to this place few times again as long as I work in Needham. Atrium mall is also very good with enough basement parking.
Great lite lunch – I had a great lite lunch at the Pho Pasteur! A bowl of the chicken soup comes out in a huge bowl and is
absolutely delicious and I couldn't eat all of it. I had an avocado milkshake with my soup that was fabulous. I chose it because I overheard a conversation at a table next to me between a young Vietnamese woman and her American rooommate. The Vietnamese woman was telling her friend how great it was and it was a cultural drink, I had to try it and so should you!
