“Delicious broth”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

Went here last night for Pho and we were very pleased. I thought that the beef broth was very, very good. I had "meatballs" in mine, in addition to some other meat, however the "meatballs" were more like sliced sausage. I will forego that next time, only because their flavor was unnecessary with the other dimensions in the bowl! We has their special summer rolls upon recommendation from our server and enjoyed them immensely. There were definitely some other interesting items on the menu- can't wait to try.

“Mediocre all the way around”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

I've been here a few times. All their Pho dishes lack flavor, and are overpriced. I recommend going elsewhere, such as the Pho places on NC 55.

“Pho galore”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Nothing fancy but on a cold day, nothing can beat a bowl of pho with spicy basil and lime garnish. Try the spring rolls for a starter, and a fried rice bowl for a heartier meal.

“Very good for the Triangle, but not like Kansas City Vietnamese!”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

We went here one friday evening. there were people waiting to dine when the doors opened. The restaurant filled up quickly. I had the Saigon street noodle dish. I had described what I wanted to the waiter in hopes of replicating the dishes served at several Vietnamese restaurants in Kansas City, MO. It was satisfactory, but not the same ingredients, taste or seasonings. One of our party got a seafood soup bowl. He liked it very much. We probably will return, but knowing that they do not replicate other vietnamese restaurant foods from the KCMO.

“Great Noodle Soup”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

If you looking for great noodles this is a great place to have it. The portions are big: the broth, the noodles and the meats are generous. We had a variety chicken, beef and seafood pho and they were all very good. The place is simple and basic, you just go there for good noodles.
