Delish

Close to campus where my hubby was attending a conference - we were starving and couldn't pick a restaurant. Then we saw this gem! Simple, fresh, and fast! Delish!

Some of the best Thai I've had. Very simple and straightforward restaurant. Parking can be a bit challenging depending on what time of day. We went during the week just after watching sunset multiple nights and not a problem. Food was awesome.

We passed by this little shop like 100 times before we wanted to be spontaneous and try something new. We both ordered pho, hers was all veggie and mine was the house special with all meats. Both were good, I'm rating it a 3 star because this place help me decide that I'm just not a pho fan. It just... More

We were here for lunch and the place was hopping. The decor is unassuming. The focus is on the quality of the food. We had the pho with beef and it was one of the best pho dishes I have had anywhere. The portions are large, and the ingredients are very fresh. The ice tea was delicious. The service is... More

This restaurant is situated close to a major hotel in a small shopping area. It was filled with Asian patrons, and luckily a table was open. The constant flow of customers for sit-in and takeaways is sign that food is good. Menu is vast and has a selection of 5 daily specials at an afforably priced ($10 and below). Service... More

I was surprised at how fast the service was here! We ordered our food and it came in under five minutes. Lots of options and the taste was very authentic. Great prices for the large portions that we got. Definitely recommend it, especially if you are looking for a different yet quick meal.

Pho La Jolla is an excellent place for pho. The pho was absolutely delicious, in fact, the best I've ever had. They are msg free and take pride in the quality of their food. This restaurant is located near UCSD in a strip mall. A favorite with college students living nearby.

Busy, fast service and good quality ingredients. This is a no nonsense place and we loved every bit of our dinner. They have good portions, nice taste , food was slightly on the sweeter side but hot sauce was provided on the table. Relatively cheap and walking distance from UCSD. I do recommend it.

We were looking for a place close to the Aquarium, and found this place in what is essentially a strip mall. Fantastic. We had Pho with beef stew, chicken, and shrimp plus spring rolls with peanut sauce. It was all delicious, with a platter of fresh basil, bean sprouts, mint, etc. to add to the soup and chili sauce for... More
