Great place for lunch!

We loved our lunch here! Plenty of options for people to customize their meals. We would eat here regularly if we lived in SF. The only issue is the extremely long line at lunch hour (that's the reason they get 4 stars instead of 5).

I love Pho and fresh roll does a great job. Their spring rolls are great as well and the portions are generously sized. My only complaint is that they haven't figured out how to serve the food quickly. It routinely takes 10+ minutes after my order is placed, to get my Pho - all of which is already pre-made.

I had lunch here recently while at an event at the nearby Moscone Center. There was a decent line, which made me think it must be okay. It took me a minute or two to fully understand the Chipotle-esque ordering system, I ended up going with the spring rolls (even though I normally prefer pho) because I was getting it... More

THE GOOD: Good sandwiches good salads Good service Clean and uncluttered environment THE NOT SO GOOD: Not much We came here for lunch on my quest to find the best Banh Mi sandwich, it is very tasty and well worth the visit if you are in the area. Not the best we have had but it was so very tasty... More

I, too, visited Freshroll based on other reviews raving about this place. I love Vietnamese food, and almost always get a bowl of vermicelli with grilled pork. So I went for lunch this weekend after the car show, around 12:30pm, looking forward to trying out a new place. For me, it did not really live up to the hype. There... More

We had lunch whilst attending a congress at the convention centre. We had burgers and they were lovely. The price was not too dear for lunch. I would recommend having the crispy Brussels sprout, very tasty. They also serve roasted chicken and very good as well.

This was a great stop for a quick lunch between business events. Their assembly line system is efficient and the staff was smiling and friendly. Food was really good and healthy. Lots of flavor! Prices are good.

Tried it and I love it. The rolls are very nice, full of fresh vegetables. I did add the "crispy goodness" and it is something that I strongly recommend. It added a needed crunch to the dish.

These guys have their stuff together - quick and assembly lined process is super efficient when you just need to eat and go, and the food was filling without making you feel sluggish. Very friendly staff!

Honestly I expected more based on the reviews here at TA but having lived in SEA for some time I need to say that the rolls are just average. They lack the spices and fresh ingredients you will find in Vietnam or Thailand. Even in the US I had better rolls at Vietnamese restaurants. Atmosphere is pretty much non-existent. Also... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
