My wife and I were really impressed by the food at this restaurant. We were caught off guard by the quality and quantity of the food for the price. We'll be going back!

Very very good. (I could do without the tripe though 😷.) Pad Thai----excellent One comment for the owners: You have a great restaurant here, but... More

Enjoyed a meal here with my family. My wife and I are big fans of Vietnamese food. The service is outstanding -- servers are very friendly and attentive. Food is good but not great. Fried egg rolls are somewhat disappointing -- the meat seems poor quality and not seasoned well. The beef in the lo mein also seemed mushy and... More

Pho is excellent but my favorate is spicy green been with sliced pork. Egg rolls are very good too. Price and quality of food earns my ***** rating. Once you try it you will become a regular customer.

The pho was delicious. Very decent price even for dinner. I visited on a Saturday evening, the place was packed & parking lot full. I guess they are a local favorite. I was by myself, so I just ordered a take out and ate in a nearby park by a river. I would come again and try other dish when... More

It's not that the food is bad, it's just average. Is this place really the #1 restaurant in Rochester? Lol, no. Not by a long shot. If you like Vietnamese food, you will like this place. But in no way, shape, or form is it a place that's going to blow your expectations out of the water. If you're new... More

This place rocks. The food is AWESOME (!), the servings are large (I got 2 meals from one serving of Pho) and the servers are nice. It's unassuming, and I liked the casual atmosphere. The menu is varied and included a lot of photos. If you're unfamiliar with Vietnamese food in general (like me), you'll appreciate this! The prices are... More

Our family enjoys this place above all other restaurants in Rochester. No matter what you select it is just delicious. A lot of food but you feel great after you enjoy. Many tasty spices but not too spicy, you can add extra if you desire. The vegetables are fresh, the meat is tasty, the sauces are perfect, what's not to... More
