I have eaten both lunch and dinner here. Never really sure what I want the staff answered all my question without any problems. Once served they checked on me often and refills were frequent.

Went here for lunch today. It's hard to find a place that we both can agree on. My husband is not always up to trying something new. This was great for the two of us. They have a wide selection. He could have fried rice and I tried one of their noodle dishes. The servers are so nice and friendly,... More

We must have hit them on a bad day. This was our first time here - the reviews are great and our normal Lake Forest Pho restaurant closed to move to Westminster. We had the #3 Rare Steak Pho and the broth was the weakest we've ever tasted. I can't believe this is normal considering all the positive reviews -... More

Unless you just LOVE MSG, and I mean EXTRA MSG... Don't eat here. They use so much MSG in every single one of their dishes, and you can't even taste the actual food because of it. Disappointing, considering they have now opened a 3rd location in Mission Viejo, which is the same MSG-wise.

We've been going here for years. The pho is good and service has really improved. The waitress always remembers what we usually order. We usually order the BBQ pork dish, fried calamari, Vietnamese egg rolls, beef, chicken, oxtail pho, and Vietnamese iced coffee. The portions are good and food comes out quickly. I also like that they give you broth... More

Yes, oxtail pho. Broth is flavorful and tasty, and without much MSG that drives you to consume lots of water afterwards. Definitely should put the basil, lime and sprouts into the soup as soon as you get it. I just learned today that you can also request the plate sprouts to be cooked first (I am fine with uncooked sprouts... More

This place has become a favorite of mine… The food is very fresh and the wait staff is very happy to help you. The place is clean and neat and very efficient in the kitchen. If you try any of their soups you will be content and satisfied. All of the ingredients are fresh and prepared on the spot. The... More

We had been craving pho and had enjoyed dining at this restaurant before. This time, we decided to split a large bowl of pho and try something else in addition, so we ordered a bun dish. The bun dish wasn't what we expected, but it was loaded with so many different subtle flavorings. It was really good. We also ordered... More
