Four tables, two staff. Fresh food. Excellent presentation and taste. A literal mom-and-pop restaurant that will become one of your Lawrence favorites.

Super great tofu veggie pho! This place is great. There is a bar area to sit and watch the hustle a bustle in the kitchen, which is connected with the dining area. Feels and tastes like an authentic "hole in the wall".

This place is such a surprise. It is a little place, but they can turn out good Vietnamese food. Stick with it Viet stuff that is what they do best. Pho beats ramen every day The Bahn Mi dropped off the menu - hope it comes back.

If you have driven on 23rd multiple times and still don't know what this place is, don't feel bad! Little Saigon is hidden behind the nail salon attached to the front, so it can be easily missed. But if you like Pho and are nearby, this place shouldn't be overlooked. We came for lunch and it was reasonably busy, but... More

I usually get the pho with sliced beef sirloin. It is so good. The restaurant is close quarters kind of a nice feeling. Nice to have good photos of each entree when picking a new menu item to try out

Stopped by for lunch and both my wife and had the seafood pho. Very small and all of the tables were filled, so we ate at the counter. My wife had the regular and I the large pho. Major mistake: should have stayed with the regular pho. Way too much food. The broth was superb and there was ample seafood... More

The place is REALLY small but the food more than makes up for it. There is a good variety of pho and other vietnamese food. if you want clear broth varieties which are simple and flavorful, this is the place to be.
