“One of the better Vietnamese restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

This is a very popular vietnamese restaurant to visit, especially
for lunch. Go early if you want parking and seats. Food is
excellent at reasonable pricing and service is alway efficient.
Food is very consistent - not too salty.

“OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

We walked from our hotel to Walmart - along the way we found this place. Sat down and ordered our normal pho tai with shrimp spring rolls. Nothing spectacular about the food it was just "OK" . Service was slow though as my water was only refilled once. Would I return ? Probably not when there are so many more PHO's in the area.

“Tasty, affordable Vietnamese food with fast service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

This Vietnamese restaurant is literally around a block from Ala Moana hotel & shopping center, and opens till 10 pm. It is very popular with local residents; thus, gets crowded even well past 8pm. But the service is fast and very efficient, even though lacking occasional smiles.

Most popular dish, I noticed, is their Pho.

Every time we visit Oahu, this is our first stop for a meal. Food is very tasty and fresh.
I like everything I tried there - Pho, Bun, Pork Chop Rice Plate (my favorite!!), Catfish Hotpot (new favorite!!), Seafood Salad, Vietnamese coffee and the BEST summerroll.

For the quality and freshness of the food, I found the restaurant very affordable. We love this place!

“Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Bright interior, great Pho and Bun. Tasty Spring and Summer Rolls! Lots of seating and limited free parking, a must stop when we're in the area and sometimes when we're not!
