I've been frequenting this place for 20+ years. They always have great service with a smile and a wide variety of great menu options. I come with one other person or frequently with 10-15 colleagues. I've also used them for catering meetings. Always a good choice. They have never let me down.

I love Pho and have tried it at several restaurants. This place has some good stuff! I've been here a few times and haven't really tried anything else.

I've been coming here for years. The owners are just great and so is the staff. I've never had a dish that I didn't like. My favorite is the Ballet Sate which is made with a red curry sauce.

I ordered the Hum Bao and the Steak Pho. The Bao was passable (barely) and the Pho was very tasty. The Bao was so tough that it was inedible in parts (small parts of the dough). It put a damper on the meal. The portions were generous and the service was very good.

If you want a quick bite to eat on the cheap in Capitol hill, here is a great choice! My favorite dish is their vermicelli noodle bowls--the char-grilled pork with eggroll is the best! They cut up the eggroll and the pork is cooked perfectly. The light oil dressing is excellent. I used to get that all the time when... More

This restaurant is simple, there's nothing fancy about this place which in turns makes it real unpretentious (considering the location) and really really really goood. I had 3 dishes along with an appetizer, springroll- probably the best i've had, pho was real beefy= delicious, yellow curry- most popular dish there and now I know why, and chow mein with crispy...

the best Pho ever! great service. In fact everything I've had here has been superb but I can't stop eating the Pho. It makes me feel healthy and strong.

Food was excellent, very large portions and very reasonably priced. Decor is extremely basic but clean. Get there before 8 as the place closes at 9pm. Excellent selection of vegetarian options.
