Okay, it is also the only Vietnamese food in Harvard Square :). It is not the best I have ever had but when you want crave a bowl of pho on a cold winter night, Le's is there and so am I.

The family had a quick dinner here before a show at the nearby Brattle theatre. My fussy two year old loved the lime rickey. She drank hers and mine. My husband loved his gilded fish. He works in the area and stops in regularly just for the dish. I liked the summer rolls best...light fresh and very quick. I could... More

Food is very good and the service is quick. This is very important for a family lunch with kids. The space could be improved.

Had the chicken noodle soup which was tasty but would like to go back and try some of the other dishes.

Really a good spot and very reasonably prices. The sauteed vegetables, ie chinese broccoli, etc, are excellent. Also, the pho is great. Surprised at the negative reviews. Yes, the decor and ambiance is a bit weird, and the service is "subdued," to put it lightly, but Le's is a great value!

I tried the spring rolls to test the quality- how can you go wrong with fried spring rolls? The menu said it had ground pork, vegetables and noodles - it actually had mostly wrapper, all noodles and maybe 1% pork and veggies combined, if there was any at all. The saving grace was the beef pho. It was perfectly warm,... More

Food here is always nice, service is also good. I suggest you try either the #38 rice noodles with grilled beef or cubed steak or pho. Their pineapple fried rice was delicious as well!

But the food was just okay. Crispy rolls had too much crust, the peanut sauce too thick and heavy. Large portions of both pho and bun. Vermicelli in bun was overcooked. Service was attentive, water glasses kept full. My sister thought there might be msg used.

Le's makes my all time favorite Pho - better than any I've had in Chinatown. The portions are huge and it's delicious. My boyfriend and I usually share an appetizer and a large bowl of Pho, and get out for less than $20 with tax and tip. Also, it's the absolute best thing to eat when it's cold out or... More
