First time I had Pho

Pho was excellent. You can choose from many options and build your own. I wanted to eat the entire bowl but could not finish. I will definitely go back and try other options.

This was my first experience with Vietnamese pho, so as a newbie, I didn't know what to expect. I ordered the chicken pho bowl, and after adding in the provided chili oil, basil, cilantro, bean sprouts, and a squeeze of lime, it was super flavorful. The prices are low, the portions are large, and the service is fast. The place... More

Very good, but not much English spoken. Food of good quality, and fast service. Am allergic to fish and fish products, and they could and did accommodate. One of the places where vegan and non-vegan can dine together pleasantly.

We have been to this place a few times since it opened several years ago because of its location being near our residence. The spring egg rolls were good; the barbeque chicken was little dry; the chicken pho was ok but not tasty. There are much tastier Vietnamese restaurants in Mira Mesa area. Servers were friendly and efficient.

The spring rolls were all I had for take out but they were great and the menu looked wonderful. The prices were good and even at an off time when I went people were coming in for take out and to eat there.

My husband is a vegetarian and ordered the spring rolls with tofu and the tofu noodle bowl with egg rolls. The tofu is firm and delicious, grilled— actually barbecued with grill marks on it— and tastes like actual barbecue. Best ever. I had the chicken bowl, which was also delicious. Bustling place with very attentive servers, some with limited English... More

When I served in Viet Nam in 1967 I encountered Pho on the streets of Vung Tau. I thought it was delicious. I recently found this restaurant and gave it a try. While the Pho did not taste the same as I remembered it 46 years ago, it was very good and the portions were huge. It was also a... More

This is a casual restaurant that serves excellent Vietnamese food. Go for the Pho 'cause their broth is excellent, but you really can't go wrong 'cause everything they serve is delicious & fresh. The staff is quick & the prices are fair for what you get.

We both had noodle bowls and they were good. Lots of crisp fresh vegetables and meat (chicken and beef) which was tender. The Spring Rolls were OK -- nothing special
