I have been coming here since 1997. Well the owner has changed I still say this is the best place for pho in the whole Lehigh Valley. I literally can't be within a five-mile radius and not stop in here. The spring rolls are just absolutely fantastic and the bowls of noodles are so flavorful and delicious it makes you... More

I love this little Gem tucked in the cut in Allentown. This restaurant is very tiny, so be careful not to miss it. They have the best Authentic Vietnamese food here and I especially love their Pho and spring rolls. It is worth the drive to me to have cooking that tastes like my Mom's when she is so far... More

I eat pho once a week in many different restaurants. This is the most disappointing bowl I've ever tried. This pho seems like it was heated up and poured out of a can. The noodles taste like linguine. The broth taste burnt other than that there is no flavor. The bowls are much smaller than many other pho restaurants.

Great Pho, but I wish there was a home-style Vietnamese restaurant. Pho is good, but there is so much more to Vietnamese cuisine.

Really great food. Not many options in the area but out of all of them this place is the best. I grew up on pho but I don't make it myself. This is a great option when you can't get it homemade.

Authentic Vietnamese food. Just a mom an pop kinda place. Nothing fancy but if you are looking for cheap eats and large plate of food you've come to the right place.

I have traveled to Southeast Asia four times and seek out food that reminds me of my trips. A friend recommended I try Pho 1. I had summer rolls which were very fresh with a great doing sauce. I also had the noodle chicken bowl which was also good. One needs to ask for utensils if one does not use... More

This place used to be awesome. I've been here a few times. It seems like it has changes owners. Just went back today to give it another shot. It was better than expected, but not like it used to be. Although, when you have a craving for Pho there are not many choices here in the valley. The veggie pho... More
