Wow-- we were blow away by this amazing place. The three dishes we had were just that good. We had the Thai version of Kung Pao chicken, green curry with chicken and eggplant and curried vegetables (using green, red and yellow curries) with fried tofu. All came with rice and all were so good we ate every morsel. As I... More

A very small little place, but wonderful food. The Pho is very good. Be sure to try the Vietnamese Entrée Banh Cuon.......DELICIOUS! I'm hoping to find a restaurant here at home that makes it as good as Pho Lena.

If you want great Southeast Asian cuisine, this is the place to go. There are many pho restaurants around Anchorage that are decent, but the size of the menu, portions, and quality make this place the best. Don't just stick to the pho, everything else here is great too. This is not a fancy or well-organized restaurant, so don't expect... More

I went for lunch, having heard that Pho Lena has some of the best pho in Anchorage. Once I looked at the menu, I was waylaid by the Thai lunch special. I had Panang chicken, a lovely mild curry dish with a coconut curry sauce. The chicken was plentiful, and the rice and the curry dish itself were hot and... More

This place is AMAZING. Great prices, great food, and so much to choose from. Their menu is huge and it's all great. It looks like a hole in the wall, but is authentic and some of the best food in Anchorage. Go!

This place rocks. It's a little hole in the wall with warm, knowledgeable staff who make you feel like you're eating in their home. Large, filling portions and everything I saw come out of the kitchen looked amazing. I had the vegetarian pho with homemade rice noodles and my friend had a curry noodle soup. Both were superb!

Do not judge a book by its cover! Pho Lena does everything RIGHT! They give large portions for reasonable prices. The ambiance is quaint and the service is fast. I have been there several times and I will continue to go many, many more! I cannot praise this place enough. All of my meals have been delicious and the staff... More

This is one of the first Thai/Laos restaurants I've eaten at since moving to Alaska about 5 years ago. Food: Overall the food is delicious and the closest I can get to having my mom's home cooking. This food is definately the most authentic i've come across. I've encountered many places where what they claim is "authentic" is actually more... More
