I love Vietnam and Vietnamese food, especially pho. This was noodle soup and pretty watery. A bit more love and flavour need to be applied.

I cannot attest to other items on menu but the soup is so good I would have a hard time ordering anything else. May it is not as subtle as Pho, particularly breakfast style Pho in Vietnam but it is certainly a worthy substitute. Well done with really fresh ingredients, and very tasty

Not an expert on Vietnamese cuisine. Ordered Pho with chicken and meat. Could not say I was impressed, but it was an interesting experience. Place is managed by a Polish lady, quite nice.

Never thought I'd find a good bowl of pho in Costa Rica! Nice decor and great hosts! Also tried the springrolls (which are a little more chinese style than viet) which were amazing. Highly recommended from a guy that lives in Vietnam.

We visited the location in Lindora....terrible, the spring rolls were ok, the "curry coconut" shrimp was totally flavorless in a very deep yellow liquid that did not taste anything like curry nor coconut milk, no salt either. Really bad, if you have tried real Vietnamese food do skip this place.

My daughters and I love Vietnamese food and Pho gives us our fix. We have only had a few things on the menu...soup and spring rolls and we enjoyed it. It's a little pricey but some of the items are labor intensive. It's a place that offers a little variety amongst the comida tipica and Peruvian restaurants in the area.

We had spring roll, fresh rolls, wings, and a curry and we all found that it was not that good. The place didn't look very clezan and the decoration was cheap!! everything came from pequeno mundo!! and to finish... More

I tried their signature soup and my daughter tried their chicken wings. Everything was delicious. We also ordered the mint lemonade and the ginger lemonade which were light and delicious. Give it s try! I will definitely go back for one of the curry dishes since I hear they are very good!
