The food was ok but did not meet my expectations after having seen the high trip advisor ranking. I had summer rolls which were rather bland and way too big. Also missing mint. And the tofu coconut curry was rather boring and undercooked.

Perfect option for lunch or dinner! Great Pho and other disches, great staff. Quite crowded during the lunch time, but you can alwas find a seat. Evert time I;m near to the Papaya, I must be there for at least small Pho :)

My friend and I came for dinner; I’m vegan and the server was very knowledgeable. We had the tofu coconut curry, vegetable glass noodles & spring rolls. Delicious, fresh and tasty.

I decided on the vietnamese sliced beef pho. As a pho lover, this isn't up to par with my pho standards. The sliced beef were more like minced beef. Won't be returning here for pho ever.

We had lunch here and loved this place! The food is good, authentic and comes at really good prices. Plus the food was prepared really fast, we didn't wait long, neither for the starter, nor the main dishes.

I didn’t use my toilet on the visit, but there was a couple of steps at the entrance. Hope this helps
