THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Sweet Basil Restaurant Review

: THIS ESTABLISHMENT IS CLOSED Vietnamese food lovers won’t mind driving to Holly Springs for this tiny eatery’s authentic fare, lovingly prepared. Don't be concerned about the modest length of the menu, either; you won't lack for winning options, since pretty much everything on the list is the best of its kind in the Triangle. Specialties are chicken with chilies and lemon grass or the Sweet Basil salad with stir-fried beef and caramelized onions served on raw veggies and topped with a tangy sesame, soy and lemon grass dressing. The grilled pork sandwich harkens to Vietnam’s French colonial heritage, and the traditional pho served here demonstrates why it is Vietnam’s best loved dish.
