My wife and I eat here every couple weeks. I usually get spring roles and the mint beef salad, while my wife gets the chicken pho. All are wonderful. Service is great as well. The only aspect keeping me from giving an "excellent" rating is that it is often a little loud, and the air conditioning sometimes can't quite keep... More

The Tran has cooked up mean pho daily for 30 years. I've dined in hundreds of times (lucky to work on the same block!); whether it's meat or veggie, fried rice, or totally new to your palette, the staff is super accommodating and a welcoming. As the other reviewers attest, this is consistent and deliciously authentic Vietnamese. Be prepared for... More

The staff make you feel very welcome and do an excellent job explaining the menu to those uninitiated in Vietnamese cuisine. They have the most wonderful soups, curries and sandwiches. Yes sandwiches...if you have never tried a Bánh mì please do so as they are exceptional.

Went here with a friend of mine for the first time. I had something with noodles and beef, I wish I remembered it. Anyway, the beef was ok. The noodles were good. They had Thai tea which I was excited about but it didn't really taste like it should have been. Service is fast, friendly staff.

We have gone here with our daughter and her family, who are "regulars" (our granddaughter has gone to SAA in Des Plaines from PreK through 8th grade.) The food is good, and I assume quite authentic VietNamese. The service is friendly and efficient. We enjoy returning here when we are in the area. We just had a nice meal here... More

The food itself would rate higher EXCEPT the portion of the fried rice was very very small, and the service is non existent. We went early (about 5:00) so there were only two other people in the place. I ordered the .

Pho is awesome here and it is close to home. The restaurant had a Vietnamese feel and the staff is very friendly. We will be back!
