Always a winner

This is one of the two pho places I'll go to in SLC. The soup is good and the noodles are always perfectly cooked. My biggest complaint though is the service. The food definitely overshadows the service but decent service is something to be desired. As many times as I've been here, the service has... read more

Have eaten here over 20 times. This is the best Pho in Salt Lake City. No frills restaurant, but they are friendly and the food is excellent. The Fresh Spring Rolls are also very good.

Excellent food, simple atmosphere. Slow service. I hope the service was slow because they were preparing higher quality food, but compared to other pho places it's slow.

Super sweet hostess, very homey feel especially when the grandmother/cook comes with your giant bowl of pho

There is a sign on the front door. 1 cook, 1 server, 1 hostess. If it's a busy time, there will be a longer wait for food. Luckily, we got there before 11:30am on Sunday. The menu has 20 different versions of Pho, but I ordered the Bun Cha Goin. Fried egg roll on top of thin rice noodles with... More

My friend and I had lunch at this place. At first we were very excited to have pho noodles having visited a long time ago. But the cashier was very rude and staring at us. It made us very uncomfortable. We left a tip for her at the table, but she didn't appreciate it and didn't even say thank you.... More

Not too many places left where you truly think you are eating in your Grandma's living room...but at this place you may just think you are. It is a small place with good food. The atmosphere of a 12 pack of coke here or there on a book shelf is rather memorable and the Pho is good too. You gotta... More

Great pho, ordered a large and still wanted more... Should have ordered extra noodle and meat. Service was slow, for a not so busy night (Monday at 6pm) so make sure to order everything you need on first waitress visit.

The vegetarian Pho, while I wish it had more than just one vegetable in it, is delicious nontheless. The small is pretty big, but my dining companion easily finished the large. His was the tripe and he loved it. The Vietnamese coffee is also really good.

The broth isn't very flavored they don't put a lot of meat in it, and the thia tea feels grimy like very powdery. Not my favorite pho place but next in choice compared to other places
