Casual vietnamese, quick service, fresh condiments, tasty food. Great to pop in if in a hurry, or if you wish to linger with friends, no rush to turn tables.

Small, quiet, decent pho. Not the most flavorful broth (I had the pho ga) so i added some chili paste. Soup spoons are ceramic which are much nicer than the usual plastic ones. $15 minimum purchase for credit cards. Not sure if I would go...More

Had a quick meal and was pleased. Vinh was my host and was terrific. Ordered 5 Shrimp spring rolls and the Tai Sach Noodle Soup. Very good. Prices were very reasonable. Will certainly return.

We went here for Pho and had very good results. The bowls are available in regular, large and extra large. I had plenty in the regular size. Other dishes available. Egg rolls, fried rice, seafood. We will go back. People were very nice and friendly

Food is good. The portion is small compared to the price. Parking is good. They kept the door open, then a fly came in. I will eat there again. It is a nice place for lunch. The fresh food was prepared quickly.

I drop by to eat authentic Vietnamese soup. It has many distinct menu and good size portion. The price is a bit expensive for the bay area but good portion.
