We saw good reviews, even friends told us about this place. It's pretty small and has many people waiting to get tables. We thought that was a good sign until we tried the food. Pho was more like a Jewish grandma's chicken soup with huge...More

This place has a tough time with consistency. Sometimes they like you and sometimes they don't. It's a Forest Gump moment...."You never know what you are going to get." The trick is to find a server that likes you....we suppose!

They do not have items specifically labeled as gluten free. Please contact the restaurant for specific suggestions from them. It is a wonderful restaurant if they can accomodate your needs.
