My family has been eating here for years. Great place. Best lunch buffet around. And wonderful pho. This is our go-to place for takeout. And the dine-in service is friendly.

We ate lunch here when we dropped off daughter off at college and had a good meal. The vegetarian pho is very good with lots of fresh vegetables in it. There are many choices of Asian restaurants in Ithaca and this one was good.

I always think I'll try something else, but I never get any farther than the beef pho. Fortunately, it has never disappointed. I love the big plate of crunchy bean sprouts, fresh basil, and lime that comes with it. Service is always very good and...More
