Torn on this one!

If Trip Advisor had a rating that said 'Good' rather than average or very good, I would have chosen that instead. Tank Noodle is definitely above average, so I gave it 4 stars. My partner had the Pho with sliced beef (#47) and loved it. I chose the marinated chicken over rice (#117). The rice... read more

Omelette is awesome and not to be missed. Beef pho always a winner. Tried the chicken curry noodle soup and now have a new favorite The depth of flavors is incredible. Very attentive service. Highly recommend

Great and cheap Vietnamese lunch spot. Waited for half an hour and was well worth the wait. Clay pot fish, Bahn Mi, the soup, spring and egg rolls, all were amazing. Definitely going back!

Looking for a quick lunch, we popped into this Vietnamese noodle house based on a friend's high recommendation. The large restaurant occupies a street corner lot and both outer walls are glass, so the place is spacious and bright inside. With what I would call 'typical' table settings and floorpan, this restaurant puts less effort into appearances and more into... More

The restaurant is always busy when we go. The service is fast. It's not for those who seek comfort whilst dining. It's loud and quite cramped, but the food is excellent. Fresh ingredients and simply delicious.

Title says it well. You'll like the openness of the restaurant on the corner. Lunches are very reasonably priced and chopsticks can be used. Even though it was crowded at 1:30 PM, we got a nice table by he window. Larger gatherings are around a circular table with a rotating "Lazy Susan" on top. Food served hot and explanations of...

I love this place - it's pretty cheap, portions are large, and it's popular for a reason. The decor is nothing spectacular, but the food is delicious and the place is clean. It's family run, with super efficient service.

When the weather turns cold, there is almost nothing better than a hot bowl of Pho (or soup). Tank serves up some of the best in the city. Went just last week and had the egg noodle, chicken broth with dumplings, BBQ pork, mushroom and veggies. Super delicious, my new fave. Their pork Ban Mih is also great. No skimping... More

The place is very clean, service is great and the portions are huge. I had the beef Pho, but could only eat 1/3 of it.

Tank noodle is an awesome, down-home family-style Vietnamese place. There are lots of options in the neighborhood, but I just keep coming back for #83, the vermicelli bowl with veggies and meat and a egg roll to boot. Nothing beats it anywhere! I don't do pho myself, I like a drier noodle bowl, and this is best in the business,... More
