“Delicious food and friendly staff”

The setting is a funky old diner turned into a vietnamese restaurant the food was really good and the staff was super friendly. They easily accommodated our large party and service was relatively fast.

“Just found the best pho in town...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Went there for the pho (Vietnamese soup) since we were in the area for some items at Lowe's. We also ordered the spring roll. I was pleasantly surprised with the pho, as I was expecting nothing different from other Vietnamese restaurants.

The noodles were not sticking to each other when you pick them up. The noodles from other Vietnamese restaurants (I learned) are placed in the bowls beforehand and refrigerated, thus when they are served, they stick to each other.

The rice paper for the spring rolls were freshly made thus the rolls are freshly prepared, too. One drawback is that the rolls will take some time to be served but its worth the wait. Other restaurants will have their spring rolls in a jiffy (again they were prepared beforehand, hence very chewy).The grilled beef strips were very tasty and tender (no ligaments).
