I wanted something light for dinner while traveling for work so I stopped into this pho shop on my way home. The restaurant was clean smelled great. They were super busy but I was seated right away. I asked about a spot to plug my phone in (it died and I needed my gps to get back to my hotel... More

This spot was super yummy and walking distance to the Sheraton La Jolla. No wait and the menu was fairly priced given the area. Recommend very highly!

Awesome good! We ate here a more than once. I had the beef stew pho! Super yummy. My only complaint is it was super cold inside. I was unable to sit inside and had to move outside.

Most of the items were already in the Pho bowl when served and water wasn't that hot. So broth never quite made it. Salad or sandwich options were plentiful, and better.

This place is always crowded but the wait is not bad. Great food, I prefer the rare steak pho. The egg rolls were also very good, Fast service and freshly prepared food.

Our home is in the Los Angeles, Southbay area, but everywhere we go, we have to try out the local Pho restaurants. We've been to so many, but wind up always rating our favorite as Huong Vi restaurant in Lawndale, but I digress. Pho La Holla is not bad, but I would probably not return. My wife tried the Pho,...

Casual, low key, kind of a hole in the wall (good sized hole), average service.... But I'll keep coming back for the great pho, Vietnamese sandwiches, rice dishes, fried noodles, and refreshing drinks. The quality of the food is very good and the prices are incredibly reasonable. Good hangout place - they have some seating outside for those nice LaJolla... More

We used to go there for years because we lived near by. We sought pho la jolla whenever we needed comfort food, a light meal or just some really sweet boba tea as a pick-me-up. Although some asian friends were not that convinced by the broth and the veggie option, we just loved it because of their generosity with vegetables... More

Some of the best Thai I've had. Very simple and straightforward restaurant. Parking can be a bit challenging depending on what time of day. We went during the week just after watching sunset multiple nights and not a problem. Food was awesome.

We passed by this little shop like 100 times before we wanted to be spontaneous and try something new. We both ordered pho, hers was all veggie and mine was the house special with all meats. Both were good, I'm rating it a 3 star because this place help me decide that I'm just not a pho fan. It just... More
