Authentic and Tasty!

We read the reviews and had the Sloppy Viet Bo Bam sandwich. It comes in a French bread sub bun with beef and veggies and it had a nice spicy flavor. I want to go back soon and try not if their entrees!

Thanks to Trip Advisor reviews, we sought out this little place and had a terrific meal with such a variety of tastes. The Pho is highly rated by those who know their Pho. I loved the grilled pork chops with rice and also the imperial rolls. It is a small place with limited seating, but worth the wait. Food comes... More

We went on a Friday night around 5:30. I was shocked at how reasonable the prices were for this area. We both got the pork vermicelli and it was awesome!!! The restaurant is small and the tables are tightly packed in. The service is very fast and the food is fresh. The tables turn around very fast--we were in and... More

I was particularly interested in trying the Pho since my local city doesn't have any restaurant serving it. This little restaurant received great reviews on Yelp so we tried it. For 3 of us, we ordered 2 appetizers and noodle entrees. The bill total was about $28.00 including tip. The food was prepared fresh and was plentiful! We walked away... More

This is such a fabulous Vietnamese place! I got the pork vermicelli tonight, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The service is prompt and kind, food is always phenomenal, and it's a favorite among friends! We love coming here as often as possible.

This is a cute little hole-in-the wall sort of place just around the corner from the King Street main drag in Old Town. It's a casual, fun, and relaxed place to grab a meal. The food was amazing. Everything was just bursting with fresh flavors. The portions were large enough that everyone at our table could share and enjoy. This... More

I generally grab carry-out and it is consistently fresh and delicious. The restaurant has the option to eat in also, but it is a bit cramped.

To stretch-out their broth, they watered-down the Pho to the point that it was tasteless. This occurred during my second visit to this restaurant. The first time I went the broth was perfect, hence my deep disappointment the second time. I might give them another shot.

Let start by saying I'm not a connoisseur or expert in Vietnamese PHO but I really liked our experience in Banh Mi. It's a small space in Old Town that seats about 30 people. That being said the room for each dinner is comfortable. The service was good, the food tasted fresh, it was just the right temperature, and the... More

This bowl of Pho Dac Biet (the works) is delicious. Even my Vietnamese friends say they can't make broth this good. The soup is loaded with everything which is how I like it - others may not like the tendon and other non-American palate meats included. I get the large size as a carryout and I have a hearty lunch... More
