“Chicken finally got us”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2014

We had enjoyed eating here for about a year. Several months ago we ordered take out, went immediately home & dove in. An hour later our daughter was vomiting multiple times. She was sick for 4 days & I had diarrhea. My husband had ordered something else & missed being sick. Cured us for good. We've been in the food business for years & can't imagine how filthy that kitchen must be! Making people sick is very serious. They are friendly & quick but the chef/cook is lazy about his kitchen.

“delicious, inexpensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014

We enjoyed pho for dinner here at the end of our trip. Place is located in the midst of a row of motels (inland, not on Cannery Row). Not much for atmosphere or view, but worth it for the food.

“Fab place worth a trip! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

We are staying in the Days Inn right next door to this place so thought I'd look it up on trip advisor. Went based on reviews and it was fab. Really nice food with a fair amount to choose from the menu, but not too much so more likely things aren't fresh. The service was excellent and food came quickly. Really cheap food and decent sized portions. Each meal for example (rice and meat / tofu) is $5.50 or can pay $1 extra for a large portion or for brown rice. But the portions we had were fine. Range of noodle soups, noodle dishes, rice and meat or veg dishes, good selection of beers, appetisers and deserts.
If you are staying at any of the motels along this strip in Monterey then this place is definitely worth a visit - our total bill came to less than $20 with drinks too! Loads of people coming in for take out, obviously large turn over, and it was busy, almost full the whole time we were there (on a Wednesday).
Amazing place shame we are leaving tomorrow!

This is the best Pho we have had in Monterey, love the bubble tea selections and this restaurant is easy on the wallet. Food comes out quick which makes it nice for taking kids out !
