Strip center location in Friendswood for several years that offers up reliable Vietnamese & Chinese at reasonable prices. This kitchen somehow manages to get tasty food prepared very quickly. Servers are mostly young Asian men who do a good job. It's not unusual for 3-4 servers to check on you during the course of your meal. This little place is... More

Local restaurant that makes excellent Vietnamese food at a good price. Family owned and family friendly. The menu has a lot of selections and different amounts of veggies to suit many appetites. My daughter loves it so much that she insisted on stopping for take-out on her way home from the hospital after tearing her hamstring playing sports.

We loved their spring rolls a few weeks ago, so we went back and ordered dinner for 4. Orange Chicken. Blech. Sesame Chicken. Yuck. Pad Thai - okay, but not much taste. Spring rolls - pretty good. I don't think we'll be back...it shouldn't be this hard to make reasonably good chicken dishes...

Nice Vietnamese restaurant with a menu, or a book with pictures. The food is very inexpensive, fast and good. It always taste fresh and it's not anything I can replicate. Family owned, clean and they always take care of you.

Food is always hot and tasty. I always get the B2 with the barbecued pork and Egg roll. Adding the chilli sauce and fish sauce make this dish excellent. My husband gets the Pho Tai. They bring the fresh basil to add to your soup. The staff are very attentive to your needs. They also do take out.

Maybe I have different taste buds. I was anxious to try this place, as it is always busy. My daughter and I tried it and the food was terrible. Service was friendly and the place appeared to be be clean but the food was the worst I have ever eaten. I was very disappointed.

My family lives in CA where there's a pho shop on every corner but we all agree this place has the best! The decor is minimal; service is fast; to-go meals are always awesome, too!
