This is the real deal. The food never disappoints. I ordered shrimp and stir fried noodles and my husband ordered a soup with chicken and shrimp with noodles. We both had enough food for another meal. My husband's soup included a plate of fresh basil, cilantro, beans sprouts, and jalapeño pepper. The broth was very tasty. My dish was equally... More

The restaurant has a small family atmosphere. With big bowls of PHO offered up. The food came very fast and waiters were helpful.

We needed a quick place to eat while passing through Kansas city via I-70 and we can't stand fast food. We like eating food that will nourish our bodies. This place was about 2 minutes off the highway, tucked in a neighborhood, easy to get to. The service was quick and basic. don't expect to get pampered. They did advise... More

I ordered ship and sweet potato- and it was just four shrimp and a bunch of fries. In Chicago, you get delicious clusters. It was disappointing. I had the chicken and noodle (not soup) and it wasn't terribly good as well. Very greasy and only had chicken, noodles and a few bean sprouts (I am used to the same dish... More

I had the M8. Stir-Fried egg noodles with shrimp, chicken and beef in special house sauce. It was very good, moist and good flavor. The people there are very nice and welcoming. The only reason I gave it 4 starts instead of 5 in because I literally only had one piece of shrimp in my meal.

There is nothing to call out this restaurant except good food. The neighborhood is almost all residential and I recommend driving or taking a cab (we arranged with our cabbie to be on call after we ate). For 4 people we had 2 orders of pho bo vien (rice noodle soup with beef meatballs plus the usual herbs, sprouts, peppers).... More

Called in for some to go Vietnam Pho. Pretty good. They pack everything in a to go container so you can freshly add your pho fixings when you get home. Great flavor. Spring rolls had great peanut sauce with them. Crab Rangoons were great!

We came here based on TA reviews. My 11 year-old grandson lives in Seattle and loves Pho soup. He ordered the pho soup with beef and I had the seafood pho soup. I noticed the beef in his was past the well-done phase. He said it was very good. Mine was okay, but nothing special. Service was okay, but the... More

The Pho Soup has a pretty Consistent Taste! Crab Rangoon was delicious: Spring Rolls tasted very Authentic: Customer Service needs improvement: Orders had to be repeated and returned! Very Economical: Not far from Kansas City Skyline and Kansas City World Renown City Market: Come Hungry!

We stopped in on a weekday evening. Place was packed as usual but they git us in when they could. Food was good and their peanut sauce tasted great. Spring rolls were a little bland this time. Pho and fried rice were up to par as always. Always worth a stop when in KC.
