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 was in town on business for 5 nights and ended up eating here 3 of those nights. It doesnt look like much from the outside but the food was really good. 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.

I agree with the other reviewers. Service is friendly and fast. It's inexpensive. On the downside, the broth was lacking in complexity and flavor. They didn't give that much basil and bean sprouts. There was a fair amount of meat in it. If you're downtown and have a hankering for pho, this place will satisfy it.
A great Vietnamese restaurant on the corner of Chestnut St. and Dundas St. It is down about 6 steps below street level.
