Awesome BBQ Platter!!!

Their BBQ platter is pretty awesome. It is a MUST when you go to this restaurant. However, their Pho is not as good as other Vietnamese restaurants. They serve their pho in a small bowl, so the soup is not as hot as it should be.

My three star rating is based on value for the dollar. I was jones'n for PHO on a wintery day. My usual place on Race and 9th was closed. I had been wanting to try this as part of my goal to eat at every restaurant in Chinatown. This one has a cozy warm feel. I must say I was... More

Generally never follow Inquirer reviews but decided to give this a try before the flower show. It was awful. Upon entering, I could see it was tiny, cramped, and the floor was dirty. We were seated next to a family that let its kids run all around. None of the food was appetizing from the grape leaves to the pork... More

We were in on the coldest day so far this winter so I'm not sure if things were just moving a little slower but there were five restaurant workers milling around and hardly any customers. I had a better meal here previously.

Well worth the time and money. Not overly expensive. Very attentive staff. Food and beverage choices were wide ranging. Our meals were Chicken Pad Thai, Basil Beef, Curried Chicken, and a sweet and sour shrimp, plus Vietnamese meatballs and noodles. Appetizers were Veggie Spring Rolls and won ton soup. All were flavorful, well plated, and nice dipping sauces to accompany.... More

The food here was amazing. I went with a group of people and all of the food that was brought to the table looked great! We shared the different dishes and it was delicious. The restaurant is located near Jefferson Station and Reading Market. I will return as soon as I am back in the area!

Did not enjoy my chicken entree one bit, it was supposed to be a lime chicken but it was super sweet and had a weird smell and taste. As soon as the food was brought out the waiter brings us the check and throughout the whole time kept asking if we were done. He literally reached for my plate asking... More

I do agree with the other reviewer about this comment, that the restaurant wasn't that great yet the food wasn't that bad either. However I felt like the price little high for Vietnamese food though. The pho bo was definitely what I expected, the noodle was overcooked, the beef was tough and sliced into chunky pieces and most of all,... More

This restaurant already has a ton of great reviews, which is why we decided to try it. We were NOT disappointed. We had the Vietnamese ravioli, spring rolls for appetizers. They were fresh and amazing. I had the sweet and sour chicken and my husband had vermicelli noodles with tofu. Both dishes were out of this world. The place was... More
