The Restaurant has moved a few blocks from it previous location, much better parking, nicer and larger dining room. The food is still outstanding, quick service with large portions at reasonable prices. I had a combination meat and seafood Pho and a Thai Iced tea. Both excellent. What I like about this restaurant is that they provide numerous condiments at... More

It was our family's first meal after we arrived Anchorage. We went straight to it from the airport. The place was still busy at 8:30pm on Sunday. We all ordered pho with seafood or beef. The taste was fine but the price was too much. Four normal size phos costed $50 plus tips. Such quality and quantity in Texas will... More

Went with my cousin. She ordered a Thai dish, asking for max heat too! I ordered a red chicken curry w/ veggies. During the hour we were there (week night, about 6:30), there was a steady flow of customers coming in, some for takeout, but mostly eat in. Both young & older, Asian to Caucasian, many looked like they were... More

We landed here after after hearing about it from friends. They have a great selection and delicious food. The Thai iced tea was the biggest I have ever seen! It was a good sign that the restaurant patrons were about half Thai.

Menu has a range of both Vietnamese and Thai dishes. We had the fresh spring rolls with peanut sauce, panang curry, and beef pho. All were delicious!!! Place was packed when we arrived after 8pm. Only downfall was staff was running all over the place and so be careful if you are in a hurry.

Our vrbo owner recommended Pho Lena. We loved it. We ordered carry out and the staff was really nice. We had Pad Thai, egg rolls, fried tofu and steamed wontons. I would eat here again for sure.

The location by REI is in a very small building, but the food is very good and plentiful. The menu is extensive and it not only servers Thai and Vietnamese, but also Lao. I usually get the Massaman and fresh spring roles, but everything I tried was good.

Some very good food included skewered of shrimp, papaya salad, grilled beef and clear noodle salad and a shrimp pho. Less good was ordinary chicken satay. That last dish was not ordered originally. What was ordered was a rare steak pho. Despite this having been discussed extensively with the main server then on duty it never got prepared and served.... More
