One of my wife's favorites

We usually do the take-out. Service is always good. The spring rolls, egg rolls and sesame chicken are our favorites. Prices are very reasonable, portions are generous and the staff is always courteous.

Just love the food and reasonable prices. Can't beat a place that the kiddos approve!! Boys ALWAYS order fried wonton and sesame chicken, but the Pho with fresh cilantro is delicious, as well!

We really like this little Vietnamese restaurant. Somehow it feels as though the soups are prepared with love, like having it at the home of an aunt who is renowned her for cooking. My brother in law has been sick and often this is the only restaurant that appeals to him so we are here often.

This Pho place has pretty dang good food in general, but the eggrolls are over the top good. 3 for $5.50 or something but it's so worth it. Big, delicious Vietnamese style, so good. I like the vermicelli bowls too, my favorite is the B2, it has char-grilled pork & comes with an eggroll chopped up in it. 5 stars... More

The egg-rolls are great. Combo Fried rice is a favorite of ours. Nice family run restaurant. Their Singapore vermicelli was terrible but that was awhile back.

Friendly and attentive staff will bring you large quantities of consistently excellent food for a very reasonable price. This isn't fine dining, it's good eating. The restaurant's appearance is best described as a little rough around the edges, but very comfortable. The food is very good, but please note we have never tried the pho. I love the vermicelli bowls... More

Let me just say that the food is great. The restaurant is okay, but if you're going for a quick lunch or dinner or take-out, you won't be disappointed. I have never had a bad meal here. Value is excellent.

Before I went here I asked the local Vietnamese where the best restaurant was, and they said PHO YEN. so I went, and now I go almost every week! The pho soup varies but is always good. The noodle bowls are almost too much to eat for this heavy eater. THe Vietnamese an Chinese food is all good.

Best pho takeout in friendswood and the service is great. I usually get the 3 flavors - pork, chicken and beef. It is outstanding. The done experience is average but only BC of the physical building and atmosphere - nothing special. The service is very attentive and the food is great.
