Love the food and the service. You can call ahead or eat in. They also deliver. If you like excellent Vietnamese or Chinese, this is the place to go.

I was looking for a place that served Lao food. I found this hole-in-the-wall restaurant that served good southeast asian food. The portions are good and the food is good. It is a very small place. They have a newer restaurant elsewhere, but I have not tried it yet.

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

I love this place. Great food. The pho here is awesome. I look forward to it every time I'm in Anchorage. It is always busy at Pho Lena. Wonderful staff, and outstanding food. Love coming here.
