We used to be a regular until I found a DEAD COCKROACH floating on top of my fried tofu. Horrified beyond imaginable. Will never EVER come again. I will not compromise price for cleanliness. Should report to the health inspector.

This is a typical PHO place. I usually don't order anything else because the other items are not as good compared to Chinese food. They serve it hot. Price is reasonable. If you are looking for PHO, you will not be disapplointed.

A Vietnamese lady recommended Pho So 1, so we went there this morning to enjoy some Pho soups. WHOA, you must not even think about dining there - it is VERY unclean from the inside, windows, and kitchen was not clean (door was open to the outside so we saw the condition of the kitchen) - who knows what you'll...

We always go there for lunch when we crave for noodles. Its fast, good and bountiful.The price is really reasonable, and the pho is the best. We can always share the large bowl of pho with either spring rolls or egg rolls. Always crowded but the wait is fast. Mostly locals patronize this place and you know its good.I had... More

Depending on when you go to this place, you would have to wait in line to be seated. It gets particularly busy during lunch time. However, the wait usually is not too long. Other times, it is not so bad. If you want good Vietnamese food at a decent price and not have to wait too long for the order... More

The Pho soups are so delicious and what a variety. The fried egg rolls are so good as well as their plate selections. Friendly and good service. Very reasonable prices. You pay your bill at the cashier by telling that person your table number.

Been eating at the pho consome for a while now so decided to try out this new place. We ordered the number 1 and the number 18 pho. I must say that when the pho came out was a bit disappointed on the presentation, although I must say that the pho came out really fast, literally within 5 mins after... More

Just landed from Vietnam and cold, feeling like to have good hot soup. Pho So 1 was the choice. Usual smell and taste make me warm and full. Quite crowded, just 10 minutes we got seats and not too long to enjoy eating.

While I had the usual Bun, with the avocado, the service was OK. For some reason, I just didn't enjoy the visit as much. I would prefer to go to their Valley locations (VN, Simi, etc.). In this area, PS1 isn't the only Pho place anymore. If I'm around Gardena again, I would try one of the Japanese ones instead.... More

Great place for noodle soup and eggrolls! Only downside is the cafeteria atmosphere and at time I question the etiquette. They are not the cleanest dig I've been too. If you like tasty food and quick service, this is the spot. Lunch or late night quick bite to eat.
