Vietnamese coffee is delicious. – I live in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and I do not have a car. When I am sick, no matter what the weather, I find a way to get myself to Lime and Basil to let the steamy pho nurse my throat.
Yes, yes, I have had more authetic pho in "Vietnamtowns" from Orlando to Montreal, and I'm sure it could only get better if you left the continent, but if you're in Chapel Hill, there is absolutely no reason not to get it at Lime and Basil. It's cheap, it's delicious, and it's right here. Yay.
don't go – I have been living in Chapel Hill for more than 6 years.
If you expect "nice pho", just drive a little bit to Durham (Kim Son) or further to Raleigh (Pho Cali)
Looking for Pho in the Triangle Area? Look No Further – This is a great Vietnamese restaurant in Chapel Hill. We were especially looking for Pho as that is one our favorite lunch dishes, and we finally came across a perfect place for it. The food tasted very fresh. The summer rolls were great, the staff was friendly, and the restaurant felt welcoming.
If you are looking for great Vietnamese restaurant and a great bowl of Pho, go to Lime & Basil. You will not be disappointed
Best food ever! – I love Lime and Basil. They have great food and it is a fun place to try new things. My favorites are the fresh summer rolls, the chicken curry, and coconut bubble tea. My friends always get pho and they love it too. I would eat there everyday if I could. Only thing is the service is a little slow some days. They need to schedule wait staff better.
best restaurant, hands down! – this is by far the best restaurant in chapel hill and definitely one of the best vietnamese restaurants i've ever been to! the food here is delicious! the summer rolls (and of course the peanut sauce) are to die for, and the pho (all of them) are so flavorful and filling! the stir fry dishes are absolutely amazing and the curry is the best i've had yet! nothing beats this restaurant in the area - i try to come at least once a week (twice if my schedule allows me to). the owner is so nice - he always comes out to check on the customers himself when the restaurant isn't too busy. the serving staff is nice and friendly and the atmosphere is wonderful!
it's definitely THE restaurant to check out if you're ever in the area; however, make sure you don't pull out an AMEX or Discover card because like most other places, they only take Visa or Mastercard.
Love it! – Hands down the BEST restaurant in Chapel Hill. Yes the spring rolls are excellent but so are the summer rolls! Food is always fresh. Like others I've been recommended this place several times by many and have recommended it to many others and EVERYONE loves the food! Prices are great! Wait staff and manager are always friendly and smiling! The house special egg noodle soups my favorite! Great for all types of eaters!
best spring rolls!! – My husband and I crave Lime & Basil spring rolls and every friend I have introduced this place to loves the spring rolls. You could have a whole meal of them. Stuffed tofu is fantastic - may be outside the comfort zone of many - but it's delicious. Service is friendly and the atmosphere is cozy.
Great Food, Reasonable price – after visiting this restaurant for the first time, i found it to be my new favorite. i have been there again several times since. The pho is delicious, and i have also had the lemongrass shrimp and chicken, both amazing. the food is fairly reasonably priced, and the service is good. If you do not like to wait, then avoid going on friday and saturday nights!!! (but really, the food is worth the wait). It is always nearly impossible to park on franklin street during busy hours, especially, but other than that there are no cons!!!! I love lime and basil, and i would reccomend it to anyone.
Went for lunch. Would not go back. – Went for lunch. Food was good but not great. Price was on the high side. Ice tea was really good. Service was so so. Could not get the check so we could leave. Well after we had finished lunch and after many tries we finally got the bill. It took about 20 minutes to get the bill, pay and leave.
This was lunch, not dinner, people work for a living. Unlike the waite staff we do not get paid to be in the resturant.
Yum – Excellent Pho and summer rolls. I've had better bubble tea but their's is OK. I just wish it wasn?t so crowded! Also FYI it's closed on Sunday's.
