Best pho I ever had. Ever. The preparation was simple yet the flavor speaks for itself. I have had a lot of pho yet this one is clearly the best.

The broth is not overpowering yet fragrant with the taste of herbs. Staff do not speak/understand much English except for "one, two, three..." thus some basic hand signs (pointing to menu on the wall & showing with fingers the number of serving/s) might come in handy. Place is small and quaint giving patrons an authentic atmosphere. Very cheap & tasty... More

I read reviews and wanted to try it. This was supposed to be one of the best. We did luckily find a table, but the cooked meat in the window in the heat smelled bad. The broth was good and pho was okay, but not fabulous. I've eaten better is US. It was inexpensive at $2/bowl.

You had to help yourself and the people were stony-faced and very impolite. I would not comeback even though I did enjoy the food.

Fresh off the plane from Bangkok, we ate here for dinner last night. One word: amazing. Best pho I've ever had and I've had a lot. The beef pho is best but even the vegetarian broth was so good. Super cheap $50k so around €2.50NZD for a big bowl. Highly recommend.

Came here around 5pm on Friday and it was closed!!! No idea what happened. Tried again the next day and waited in line for 15 minutes. Pho broth is excellent the way I like it: - not much (no?) MSG - broth is clear yet meaty sweet <= very hard to do - just a hint of grilled ginger &... More

we preferred this the best. It was long queue when we arrived the shop before 9am. But, the crowd was moving fast. Do not mind sharing table.
