The salad was full of vinegar and fish sauce, The noodle dish had no taste and the soup. (pho) was good. I have eaten in many Asian restaurants and this one was disappointing.

Great place for lunch or dinner. I LOVE the Lemongrass Tofu plate with brown rice. It is my “go to” meal. Always a member of the clean plate club. Drinks are solid too - my better half swears by the Mai Tais.

I had veggie pho. It was served with celery, carrots, bell peppers, bean sprouts and noodles. He had shrimp and calamari dish with a sweet sauce. Was very good. Comes with rice. Staff friendly. Restaurant clean Would go again.

Tried this and it is definitely living off its past reviews. Food is good. Average. Nothing special. There are better places nearby, worth visiting. Motif is dated. Food was basic and not that good. Skip and try better places in the area.
