I love this place! I think about it more than once a week! Everytime we visit San Diego, we go here. It is the best food ever! Grilled meats, fresh herbs and vegetables, whole fish, the most delicious Pho! I miss you so bad Saigon!!!!...More

I've been coming here since I was a little boy the food here is out if sane. By out of sane I mean really great Vietnamese food. I recommend the crispy noodles and the seafood fried rice.

My favorite Vietnamese restaurant in San Diego area. Authentic, large portions and at a great price. I love #22, their extra large bowl of beef Pho.

Yummy food! Everything we ordered was good! Price is very reasonable. Don't be deceived by the outdated decoration of this place, it has an "A" rating which makes me feel good to eat here. Service is very good. Will definitely go back!

FOOD The pho was cooked with quality ingredients making for an incredible broth. The beef was a little fatty for me, but I understand that can be a plus for some. I tried some of my friend's Mongolian beef which was delicious. ATMOSPHERE Nice, large...More
