It's a miracle: a gigantic menu where everything is good. The pho is wonderful, but also look check out the bun (rice noodle salads), roll-it-yourself sugarcane shrimp rolls, chicken curry soup...I have yet to find anything to eat here that I didn't love. This isn't the world's most comfortable place to sit. There are often drafts in the winter when... More

I had never tried Vietnamese food before, but am I glad we decided to eat here! The food was absolutely delicious! I had the duck soup and it was so flavorful! Everyone in our party of 4 enjoyed their selections immensely. The portions are huge so be prepared to take your soup in a carry-out container. It did take them... More

Good selection of Vietnamese specialties. Recommended by my Vietnamese friends. Several varieties of pho. Large portion big enough to share. Reasonable prices.

We go to Tank Noodle every time we visit Chicago. Great pho. It can be very crowded at peak hours...we try to show up at less popular times (for example, 430-5 pm even on weekends), and it is then very pleasant.

The Pho here is AMAZING!! If big crowds and having to flag down someone for service intimidates you than this isn't the place for you. But let me tell ya, the food is worth it! My broth was hot and tasty, the beef was plentiful and scrumptious, and the staff are nice and polite. I highly recommend this place!

This place isn't bad. Don't get me wrong. It's just very average. I feel like I can get pho that tastes like this at just about every restaurant in the neighborhood. Especially with some really good places down the street (check out pho 777). All in all you won't go terribly wrong Kama because pho is always good. It's BYO... More

A big steaming bowl of pho packed with rice noodles, beef slices, flank meat, cilantro stems and other variations like brisket, tendon, meatball and tripe, if desired. The beef broth is delicious, tasting of beef, ginger and the aforesaid cilantro. A small plate of bean sprouts, fresh basil, lime wedge and chiles comes with it to season to your taste.... More

Highly recommend. The menu is overwhelming but you really can't go wrong. It's always pretty packed but that's just a testament to the quality.

Authentic Vietnamese food is served in a busy bright cafe. Large tables allowed our group of 7 sit comfortably to share many ell-prepared dishes.

My favorite Vietnamese place. Never disappoints. I always order the Pho, Crepe, Egg Rolls here. The rice plates are satisfying as well.
