Not What It Seems! Try It Out!

Walked into this place looking for some good Pho on a visit back to Monterey area. This place is fun. I've been back several times before. It is almost like a sports bar with multiple big screen TVs above the bar! Really cool. While their food is good it is inconsistent. One night the Pho is... read more

Went for the chicken pho. It was terrific. Not salty but vibrant flavor. Oodles of noodles. Started with generous portion of spring tools. They were so fresh and tasted wonderful. Prices are right on. One non foodie comment. Loved the ceiling.

They very good pho, at a reasonable price, the service is very good and the people that work there are friendly and attentive. I'll definitely revisit this restaurant when I'm back in town.

We had pho here and overall, it was okay. A bit too much star anise flavor in the standard rice noodle pho and the meatballs were rubbery and overcooked. The egg noodle seafood soup had about 1/2 cup of crispy fried onions on top - way too much. Plus the shrimp was suspiciously off color so I didn't eat it.... More

The service was real slow, but the foods were real good. The spring rolls were delish. The large combination pho I had for dinner hit the spot. It's a pricey sit-down restaurant though.

My husband and I have been fans of another Vietnamese restaurant Pho King, in Seaside, but it closed recently. Hunting for a replacement, we tried Taste of Vietnam and have been back many times. First of all do not be put off by the location. Next to the now closed Salvation Army, the parking lot is pretty rough looking and... More

Admittedly I haven't been to every Vietnamese restaurant in Monterey, but this one certainly fills the bill for Vietnamese cuisine. Unpretentious but good service and terrific food. Reasonably priced. Recommended.

I love Vietnamese food and found this restaurant thoroughly mediocre. It is a sports bar in addition. I have eaten at other Vietnamese restaurants in Seaside and found them to be much more interesting.

Looked very unassuming and I was certainly not sure- before I got inside that is. We went here because of reviews on Tripadvisor and this is proof why Tripadvisor is amazing! Would never have gone if I had not seen reviews, am very glad I did. Food was great and enjoying a few drinks watching sports before hand fit the... More
