I have just eaten lunch here and chose the Pho (with seafood) based on a previous reviewer's recommendation. It was absolutely delicious, the liquid base soup was very morish. The staff were friendly and welcoming, the service was speedy and the food excellent value too. Note that there is no alcohol served but the iced water comes free and mine... More

I did enjoy the dish of chicken & vegetables. There was enough for 2 sittings. I added lots of sriracha sauce to spice it up after the initial hot temperature of the dish wore off. The water carrier brought lots of water so I was happy. He would get finicky if one of our group didn't provide their glass. The... More

I've lived in Kansas City all of my life and just recently discovered this little gem. My husband and I have been there a couple of times and the food has been outstanding everytime. The Pho is what I recommend. My husband gets it with seafood and I get mine with chicken. The broth alone is flavorful and very satisfying.... More

It is also very noisy and the tables are placed very close together. We all ordered different things so that we all could taste a variety of dishes. This was really fun to do... More

Although the food is ok, there are other restaurants in town that will not exploit their clientele charging $2 for 4 tiny lettuce leaves. Their greed is greater than their concearn if a clienet would ever return or write about it.

I eat Pho every Sunday in Sydney, so was thrilled when I found a busy and authentic Pho restaurant in downtown KC. Preceded by prawn rolls and accompanied by salty lemonade. The atmosphere is really hometown and family, we got in just in time, the place is so popular there was a queue of about 12 that followed us, but... More

I visited this Vietnamese Café during my to Kansas City. I eat at lots of Vietnamese restaurants, mostly in the east coast. The Café was homey and had a small family restaurant feel. I was solo and since the café was full of customers I was asked to sit with others i didn't know. At first it was akward, but... More

I have eaten here a couple of times and it is an amazing place. It is a small "mom & pa" kind of place with wonderful dishes. It doesn't seem to matter if you go at lunch or in the afternoon you will find it busy but there is always a place to sit, especially if your ok with sharing... More

This is our family's favorite Vietnamese restaurant in Kansas City! It is always busy and packed, with a line going out the door. It brings in an eclectic mix of people. The service is okay, but the food is wonderful! They provide a huge plate of fresh ingredients to add to your oversized bowl of steaming hot pho! It smells... More
