Didn't want to tarnish the Noodle Bar's ratings as their food is decent with good prices. BUT their Banh Mi Bar across the way leaves a lot to be desired! The BBQ pork is bland and missing the usual five spice flavors and, even worse, their meatballs are NOT the usual Vietnamese meatballs but Italian meatballs - tomato sauce and all! Perhaps this is a Monterey Peninsula convention but a first for us (and a real downer!). I guess Chopsticks is still the place for local banh mi.

You have to give them props. They have figured out a way to give people good food (not great), a good amount and great Boba drinks for a very good value. I would rather spend my $5.50 at this restaurant than at a fast food place.

There were 14 of us in our group, and though it is a small place and very busy, they got us all in and fairly quickly. Everyone enjoyed their food a lot.

There was a wide variety of items on the menu - pho bowls, fresh and fried spring rolls, fried noodle dishes, rice dishes, etc. They were also all at a great price!

They also had a wide selection of drink items. I loved that they had boba drinks. I got Thai Iced Tea smoothie with boba (tapioca balls). So yummy!

I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

It is a great place for a casual dinner. Food is delicious, specifically the Pho soup and noodle plates. Prices range from $5.50 to $10 and service is good. It is a place that is never empty.

Excellent food and service.
This place is really more of a fast food restaurant and take away, but still great for dinner eating in.
The staff are friendly and helpful.
The food is the best we have had of its type. Great portions and very fresh authentic flavours.
It's the best value for money you will get anywhere!
