“Cheap eats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Pho is still hard to find with us in the Uk, The here food was quick and good the restaurant was always busy which can never be a bad sign, service wasn't bad. Portion sizes were good and was cheap for the area.

“great vegetarian pho!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We were staying a close by hotel in La Jolla and found this unpretentious Vietnamese restaurant filled with university students. We are always happy to find vegetarian options at restaurants and we had delicious vegetarian pho (soup) and tofu salad rolls. There were many other vegetarian options for us and the portions were large.

“Tasty with good value.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Wide selection of pho. From traditional to vegetarian. Very busy place where you see a variety of people from the college kid to the local. The chicken pho was good even though I had to use all of my additives to have the flavor I am used to.

“Excellent value - super tasty!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Rare steak pho was excellent, and awesome value considering the size of the portion! Beleive me when I say there is no need to go for the 'larger' portion!

“Tasty, cheap, best option in area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

I was staying in the nearby hotel for a few days looking for food options. Urbanspoon and locals recommended the sushi place right beside this shop, which makes no sense to me - it was unremarkable and expensive. This pho place is clearly the best place to eat on this little strip. The soup is great, the ban mi is delicious. And two people could have a very pleasant meal here for the price of one "meh" sushi dinner next door.
