“Great Food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

I had lunch here twice and both were great. The service was quick, though they don't seem to understand English very well, just enough.. The place itself probably need some touch-ups here and there.
I had a very good beef noodle soup. SO GOOD!

“Great food, good value, noisy lunch place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013 via mobile

We've been going here consistently for 8yrs. It's our favorite place during the dark, cold, winter Bellingham weather. Family run & each order cooked fresh from scratch. Really large servings with lots of fresh condiments included. It is noisy & the lighting is a little too bright. Service is a little slow & inattentive- to be expected at a 'mom-n-pop shop'. The owner has a good memory & will remember you after only a few visits. One of the few reliable eateries we have. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

“Great food bad place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

The food is great and at a very good price but the service is non existent. The place is extremely dirty but the owners are nice. But the food makes you forget all of its shortfalls.

“100% satisfacttion rate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

I have eaten here 2-5 times a month for the last 5 years. never been disappointed. I actually still get excited when I see my huge bowl of pho coming. this is my go to pho place in Bellingham but everything here is awesome. you know it's the spot because on any given night, the place is 1/2 full of Asian people.
