“Nice variety for RB”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Their food is good and the staff is attentive. The only thing that will make it better is when they get their liquor license. It's also a good place for lunch, they have good-priced specials and it comes out fast if you have to get back to work.

“Unique”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

Service was slow but friendly. Prices are reasonable. We had Bahn Mi sandwiches and Boba Tea. Both were fresh and authentically prepared. A welcome change from the usual fare in these parts (where food is fast, Mexican, Chinese, or beef, beef, beef). Will definitely go back again to try the Pho.

“Good Pho in Red Bluff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Finding a Vietnamese restaurant in Red Bluff was a pleasant surprise. It's much more a beef, fast food and Mexican food town.

I really do enjoy a warm bowl of Vietnamese Pho soup on a cool day. It's tasty, warm and filling. If you never have had it, think of a light broth with vegetables, meat and noodles. It's usually served with a side of sprouts, lemon grass and a lemon wedge.

The interior was neat and tidy with one employee (owner) cooking and serving. The smell was delicious with spices. The single page menu was limited to pho, spring rolls, and traditional Vietnamese sandwiches called bahn mi. Of course I went for the pho.

The pho arrived in a large bowl with the expected side of sprouts and lemon wedge. In all it was pretty good, not the best I have had, but definitely not the worst either. Would not hesitate to order again. During a discussion while paying my check, I found out that other "off menus" meat options are also available.

Overall it was a good experience, however their menu is very limited. It would be nice to see it expand to include other traditional Vietnamese dishes. The service was excellent.

The check totaled $7

Will be back
