Fantastic food and friendly staff

We had 2 great orders of Bun (vermicelli noodles with meat). Very tasty, nice peanut sauce. We started with a Vietnamese summer roll with pork and shrimp which was very good. And we had an app of dumplings, nice and light, light dough, good choice. Very good option for dinner.

Very enjoyable experience. We have been talking about trying this restaurant but hesitated because we were very unfamiliar with Vietnamese food. We stopped in for lunch and we're not disappointed. Greeted immediately and seated right away. Menu is large but easy to navigate. Lunch items include choice of soup and eggroll. Everything has a good description. My chicken curry was... More

I've become a regular at this place, what's not to like?! Giant bowls of steaming hot Pho, friendly staff and a crazy beer selection from around the world. Pho with a beer is around $15.00 plus tip. Lunch specials with soup and egg roll for $10.00.

Third oriental restaurant we have eaten in in Bluffton and by far the best! We both enjoyed the lunch special for $10.00 that included the best Wonton soup I've ever had and a nice spring role with plum and nut sauce. I enjoyed the beef and vegetable main course and my wife enjoyed the chicken curry. Good portions and very... More

Small but they make up for it with the flavor of the food. The owner is very nice and the pho is to die for. I didn't try it the first couple visits and now that is all I will order.

We love Vietnamese food so much that we were married in a Vietnamese restaurant. Our son said the vegetarian pho here was the best he's ever had. Food, service, price were all great. Can't wait to return to the area to visit this restaurant again!

To begin, our family of four, two of which are teenage boys with large appetites, visited on a Friday night at 7 p.m. The restaurant had eighteen tables, each of which could seat up to four people, and one table that could seat seven or eight. When we arrived, guests occupied every table except for the one for eight, and... More
