Fresh and delicious

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

If you want great Vietnamese food for reasonable prices, come to Tank Noodles - you may have to wait.....but it is worth it. I have eaten here numerous times in the last year and have always had great meals. The ambiance....basic. The staff....helpful and courteous. The food....authentic. The pho here is wonderful, extra herbs are always available if you ask.... More

Went here for the soup on a rainy day. The place does get packed but we only waited about 10 minutes to be seated. Once we were seated we were offered drinks. It didn't take long to get our appetizers. We ordered shrimp and pork fried egg rolls. They're on the small side but really tasty. We also ordered shrimp... More

Love, love, love this place. They serve the best authentic vietnamese food in all of Chicago. Order #50, it's the best Pho you will ever taste! The service is excellent, the staff are very friendly and helpful. The ambiance is casual. There's always a line up here and parking can be a challenge BUT come on a Sunday afternoon when... More

Best Pho in Chicago? Definitely. Best Pho in the Universe? Could be. I have yet to have better Pho or Vietnamese food in general. Any challengers to Tank? -Ben Edlavitch
