Stopped for dinner the other night. Was hoping for chicken pho but it is only available on Sundays. The options were beef or shrimp (or both). The beef pho was really good.

Always fantastic. Love the shrimp and beef Pho!!! If you want it a little spicer add the red chilli paste. Chicken pho which is on Sundays only is fantastic although I never make it on time, they ran out of it by 10am.
