We came here for lunch and I had the crispy tofu. This might well be the best tofu dish I have ever had.

The title should say it all. Plenty of parking on main road. Crowded, so had to wait 15 minutes. Quality food, good service, good price, great taste.

The food is amazing. The service is good. The place is small and the decor below average. We go there for the food, not the decor

Loved the fresh and delicious food at this great little spot! The summer rolls, pot stickers and pho were all delicious. Reasonably priced too. Friendly service. A must try!

The food is delicious, friendly service, very reasonably priced. The room is very loud when they're busy, other than that there aren't many cons. One of my favorite restaurants in Ithaca.

Always a family must-do when in Ithaca. Best Pho and Vietnamese Coffee. Only a 4/5 due to tiny place, sometimes a decent wait. All round well worth the wait! Staff is great, food served promptly.

A nice variety of traditional Vietnamese foods. Food was very tasty, fresh and plentiful. The place was crowded and I had to wait a short time, but well worth it. Food is very authentic and has wonderful flavors... may go back tomorrow and try the squid!

We were visiting Ithaca and saw this place on the way. My friends ordered a bunch of dishes and everyone really liked what they ordered. Unfortunately I ordered a vegetarian Pho and it wasn't very good. However based off of what my friends said, their dishes were flavorful and plenty. The coconut based curry was especially liked by some. The... More
