“Loved the Beef Phò”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Another awesome place in Seal . I love the beef pho soup. I'll go there for a light lunch that is going to keep me full into dinner and not to sleepy to go back to work. They have a great menu, the services s excellent and the price is right. Visit this family business and you will be back for sure.

“Nice oriental food at seal beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

This is a great place.. I loved their food.. Vietnamese food unlike Thai/Indian is not very heavy. It has mild taste and soothing flavors. I would recommend their drinks. We tried the Vietnamese coffee and Basil leaf extract. The portion size is large and the service is good.

“Delicate tastes and good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Thrree people went looking for something different and found it. We arrived at about 6:30 PM and sat down despite only three other customers. Service was prompt and informative. By the time the spring rolls arrived, the number of customers was up to seven and by the time we left there were only two empty tables. Beef soup, noodle bowl and friend shrimp were all good and the ginger-lemon tea was a perfect complement. The tastes were well-blended and delicate, the spiciness was left mostly to the customer and we could not fault anything about the meal except a little toughness in the spring roll shrimp. We plan to return.

“Hot Pho on a Cold Night!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Saw this Vietnamese restaurant earlier in the week, and was craving some Pho, especially when the cold front moved in. A busy little place on Friday night, I found a seat and ordered the vegetarian Pho. It was served hot and fragrant, so delicious, with all the goodies. Did not have time on this trip to go back to try other dishes, but the crowd of patrons indicated it is a popular spot with the locals. The service was great, the prices so reasonable, and so accessible right on Main Street in Seal Beach!
