Great pho

You can always count on a good bowl of pho when you come here. The only negative I would pose is the cleanliness of the restaurant. It is not dirty, just needs a good steam cleaning of the walls, tables, bathroom, etc... Will definitely come back if in Coolidge Corner again and the food is... read more

This is a solid asian restaurant for the area. Not very formal and more of a "local" type establishment. We stopped in for lunch and found the service to be fast and efficient and the food to be tasty. Not much more you can ask for!

My daughter and I were in the area and needed to grab a quick lunch. The summer, spring rolls were disappointing, but the rest of the meal was great. The choices were plenty in the lunch menu. Would recommend.

The pho was delicious and just the right size to go with an appetizer and a beer. The Vietnamese spring rolls weren't anything to write home about, but they're not really point of a phone place :-)

The weather was bad and this restaurant was a quick walk from my hotel. Initially it looked like the kind of place that you don't want to look to hard at as you might not like what you see. I ordered some kind of crunchy noodle dish with chicken and vegetables. It was delicious. I all but licked the plate.... More

We've always had tasty, reasonably priced food here, served by a cheerful, smiling waitstaff in a pleasant relaxing atmosphere. One star deducted for a shrimp stir fry last year that led to sickness that evening. Had an elaborate deep fried sea bass dish last night. Quite a remarkable production! I'd give that one 4 1/2 stars.
