Busy, really inexpensive with good food. The Bowls of Pho could feed 4 people, and the pork bahn mi was very tasty. BYOB.

This place is bit of a trek from the tourist area but worth the ride. One block from the Argyle station. We had the shrimp congee, egg rolls and a pork banh mi. Family run, very friendly service. Prices very reasonable. They don't serve alcohol but you can bring your own. Did not see a liquor store near by.

Delicious! Don't let the basic look of the place deter you.We had spring rolls and the Pho and they were all delicious. Also the iced coffee is super delicious, not too sweet but just sweet enough. The food was fresh and yummy. The neighborhood we probably wouldn't give found without some help, but we are glad we stopped here!

I live in the burbs where there really aren't any options for quality pho. Tank Noodle is well worth the drive. The pho is fantastic, so aromatic and delicious. And the portions are very generous, we typically eat half and take the other half home for the next day. Half a portion is about a normal bowls worth at home.... More

We had a late lunch at Tank Noodle recently and enjoyed our second visit there as much as the first one a few years back. We both had the chicken rice noodle soup; one with shrimp and BBQ pork, and the other with chicken. The food was flavorful and plentiful. Neither of us could finish our serving. In addition to...

Yes, during mealtimes they're crowded and busy, but that's a good sign. (It means people, regulars and others, are willing to wait for their food.) They have so many food options (appetizers, pho, soups, banh mi, noodle dishes, rice dishes, seafood), you could order something different every time you go, or stick to a few favorites. They have a variety... More

We walked into this place but there is no waiting area so you stand near the tables and have to constantly move so the waiters don't run into you. The place seems popular so expectations were high. But the reality was somewhat disappointing. our food was OK but not great. average. It is OK if you come just for food.... More

Check out this lively and packed simple eatery, Great menu if you love soup this is your pace of course they have many other offerings too. The spring rolls are stellar. But get some soup. Prices can't be beat and the neighborhood is filled with other new places to try.

It is a really good place for Asian noodles. It is always crowded. If you expect good service, not a good place. But if you want to try good noodle! Great place to go!
