Amazing pho in a lively setting

Tank Noodle is an excellent source of great pho and the service is excellent. Expect noisy diner rather than relaxing restaurant vibe. Some dishes are overwhelmingly packed with noodles, vegetables and herbs with just a sprinkling of meat, seafood or anything else with much flavor, so be sure... read more

We love Vietnamese food, and Tank is near our son's apartment, so we usually stop in during a visit. They are often busy, so you may have to wait for a table. We usually get Vietnamese crepe, fresh spring roll with shrimp, and one of the many pho choices. Above average Vietnamese neighborhood restaurant, down to earth. A big bowl... More

This happening spot is incredibly popular, and for good reason. The food is healthy, authentic and very fresh. Try the veggie spring rolls.

We went to lunch here a few days ago and it was great. The fried spring rolls were tasty but the best was the huge bowl of Pho. There were many selections to choose from so we both went for the Ox tail Pho and it was delicious. We got there around 11am and by the time we left, there... More

I went to this restaurant every time I'm in Chicago. I love the pho over there, especially the combination one, it has everything and tastes awesome. the XL size is really big, and me and my boyfriend normally share it so that we won't order too much. But I do have to say the sugar cane juice was too sweet... More

This place was hopping at 5pm on a Saturday night so we were glad we got their early. The staff is flying around and the kitchen must have been as well as the food came very quickly.

We had 2 different Vietnamese soups, they were both very good. The menu is huge and the place was packed. We went on a lunch time. The service was good.

This was my first time trying Vietnamese food. I could not get past how dirty this place was. The floor and the blinds in the area we were in were beyond disgusting. The ceiling fans were caked with dust. It made me wonder what the kitchen was like. The place is extremely popular so the food must be good but... More
