nothing special but reliable for a simple lunch

Have been here several times over the past two-three years. Friendly staff and busy place. Extensive menu. Best to stick with the phos. The other items are just OK. Portions are satisfyingly large and prices are moderate. Don't order the crepe. Takes a long time so other diners at the table... read more

This place screams average. I enjoyed my pho and avocado shake. The crab spring rolls I had were quite excellent though. Would go back, but would likely try somewhere new first.

Food was just ok, restaurant was not as clean as it could have been. We had the vegetarian Pho and the beef and chicken and the vegetarian was far better. Our waitress was wearing a t shirt with a photo of naked breasts on it so if that kind of things bothers you, you might want to choose another place.

Not very clean: the dish was dirty and I found a hair in the dish. The food was not special: I did not like the meat, the rice and the drinks were ok.

Wonderful Vietnamese food with good combo plates so you can try a few items. Unfortunately it was to cold and I watched a young boy playing with the cutlery out on the table didn't seem too sanitary.

I found the staff to be friendly and cheerful, and the food was fresh, with giant portions! It was always busy when I went in and I would... More

We just walked into this place because our other fave restaurant was closed that time. The food was okay nothing special and the service was very very bad,the guys who worked seem like they don't want to have guests at all. Better go to other restaurants around.

This is not a fancy Asian restaurant. It almost has the feel of a diner. The food, however, is great. I would certainly eat there again. Drink selection is quite limited. If you order water, you get a really small glass. Otherwise you have to order a soft drink out of a can. Try the pho. They have several varieties... More
