Good enough

The place is located along broadway. It's well lit. If you plan to dine in, come early as the place is packed easily. It can accommodate around 50-70 people but still it gets packed easily during lunch and dinner. They only accept cash, so if your a tourist, be sure to bring about $10 per... read more

Lets start of by this place is not clean. Service is horrible and staff is rude. My friend and I went to have dinner, ordered two bowls of noodle and a small spring roll. Which are regular dinner size orders. The place was not busy AT ALL. Had 4 round tables in the middle all empty. As we finished we... More

They have the best Pho I have tasted in years. Inexpensive and packed with fantastic taste. You just have to deal with the bad service; in order to, enjoy this great dish. Worth a visit and there always seems to be a cast of characters here - all enjoying Pho.

Went to dine for 2 weeks in a row to order my favorite...Chicken Lemongass-spicy. As usual, the food is delicious and plenty and got to take some home. Simple place to eat but have fast service.

As the old saying goes, the ruder the service, the better the food. This definitely applies to this place. The best you can get, even from the people at the take out counter is a smirk. However, the spring rolls and grilled pork chops keep me going back for more rudeness. Try it out but be ready for crappy service.

The portions are big and the food is delicious. This was my first time there and I would definitely go back for some Vietnamese steak!

There were 3 of us, wanted a nice good hot and quick lunch at reasonable prices. We got that with noodle soup, spring rolls, some pork chops. Food was very good. Service is so-so and English is not very strong, and restaurant really needs to clean up much better. However, food is good, plentiful and cheap.

Great price. Great pho noodles. I think this place is better than Pho Bac which is located in the same plaza. However, I think they put a lot of msg in the soup, because I get so thirsty afterwards.

My wife's friend raved about the "no. 30 meal" (some noodle dish) here and, since (unlike yours truly) my wife puts a lot of stock in other peoples' opinions, we had to come here for lunch. It was a bad experience. Despite being a dump, the place is crowded and there was a line of people waiting for tables. We... More

Having tried several Vietnamese Pho in other cities, this is simply another good and authentic Pho outlet in New York. I have eaten there twice in a week, first visit a bowl of combination Pho with thin and tender slice of fresh beef, ligament and omasum etc, and the second time with only the bouncing beef balls. The soup was... More
