On a cold winter day come here for a nice bowl of hot broth and Pho Noodles. The broth is perfectly made with just the right spices. Ask for some cilantro, it adds a great taste. Lots of tables up front and larger tables in the back for bigger groups. Some of the tables have openings in the top... read more

Wandered by this place one day while in the area - was craving some pho since it was cold out. Was not disappointed - food was great (had the brisket pho and chicken dumplings) and reasonably priced. They are super quick - but I didn't feel rushed. Overall I would go back.

Staying in Midtown, K-town specifically, and went out around 10pm ish for something to eat. Discovered this place and saw that it had a sticker for trip advisor. We had brisket Pho and the portions and price was great. Very tasty Pho, and O know Pho (from Seattle). I highly recommend it.

We had shabu with beef. Each seat position has an induction burner. So if you order Shabu they remove the cover off the table and turn on the burner. The broth is cooked fairly quickly due to the induction burner. It came with noodles, plenty of beef & veggies to toss into the boiling broth. The pork chop dish ($16)... More

I went to this place as it was fairly rated on yelp (reason why I prefer tripadvisor). I had some rolls and they were already a little chewy, not good start. I move to the main which I thought would impress me but I found a little surprise half the way through..A short brown hair floating in my soup! As... More

I was here on break and decided to try this place out. It is really only one of the few Viet restaurants in the area or in Midtown for that matter. The service was friendly and the food came out fast! I had the vermicelli with the egg roll and sliced pork. I definitely have to come back and get... More

We went here twice because it was close to our hotel & every time we walked past, it was busy. The food was very good, served quickly and well-priced. Our bill was $35 one night, and $50 another. A glass of wine is $5.

It's a pho restaurant in Korea Town with what I believe to be Korean owners (at least management is). So you can't really expect authentic pho. They don't even give you much basil or cilantro, and most of the time, you get only one or the other. I go there because it's easy, and I like the taste of the... More

I have been here three times because its the only location in midtown I know of that offers PHO that I like. Its not the very best but its quite good and not salty at all. The last time I went I ordered the seafood Pho. I love shrimp so I was excited about this one, however when I got... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
