The moment you walk through doors you might have second thoughts, but don't let the tacky decor and awful lounge music put you off. The food that is being made is authentic with fresh ingredients and consistently delicious. My goto is the Pho Beef served rare and a side of salad rolls, the soup is to die for and the... More

The Hot & sour is the best soup going, also best spring rolls in town. Theres a reason it gets super busy.

The noodle broth was very good, but the price of a large bowl didn't justify the skimpy meat, tendon, and tripe portions. I also had to ask for fresh basil, bean sprouts, and lime which should be expected for a bowl of pho.

Funky atmosphere in the Old City Quarter ... fresh ingredients and consistently delicious in plentiful portions. Efficient wait staff and friendly, too. Love their spring rolls!

There was enough room in the restaurant and one family was just finishing eating, one solo guy already had his food and another couple had just been seated as well. The waitress never asked us if we wanted drinks, it wasn't till... More

At first you think "Really? This may not be a good idea" at the dated exterior and small interior, however the food quickly changes your mind! The pho is amazing and my current favorite is the lemon grass beef or pork vermicelli. I can never decide between the two! It can get pretty busy at lunch during the weekdays as... More

Great Won Ton soup - very small restaurant - not much ambience, however, food makes up for it. Enjoy having lunch there.
