This was our second time having Vietnamese, and we loved it. I had the sizzling beef, hubby had the pad thai and the kids split sweet and sour chicken. Spring rolls for appetizer were great too. Nice clean modern interior. Jasmine limeade was AMAZING!

I come here at least once a week for Pho. Homemade broth with all the fixings and always good. I also recommend the summer rolls and the Thai iced tea. Other dishes always look good, but I am a pho fanatic.

Quite real Vietnamese dish except fish and soup too sweet. The atmostphere is good too with nice decoration. Friendly service.

I drive 25 miles once a week to have a bowl of their seafood pho. Absolutely the best around and a bargain at $10 for a huge bowl. The service is excellent and you can sit at the bar and watch sports with no wait for a table. Don't miss this great spot if you love any type of Vietnamese... More

I've tried pho at several restaurants in Worcester and this is my favorite. I haven't tried anything other than pho and spring rolls here, but they're both great. Service is equally good and the dining room is always clean and orderly.

I am not Vietnamese so I am not qualified to say which one of the many excellent Vietnamese restaurants in Worcester is the best. This place is a little more upscale than most of the others, which means that its a bit more expensive and the decor is fancier. So this restaurant is a good choice for whom Vietnamese food... More

Tried Vietnamese food for the first time, and it was excellent! So fresh and delicious. We had no idea how, or what to order, and our waiter was very helpful. Can't wait to go back and try another yummy dish!

Best Pho in the city! Wide range of menu items. Friendly service and very clean dining room. Been going since a Vietnamese friend recommended it over 10 years ago.
