“Greasy, Tasteless, Old Vegetables”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

With so many great restaurants in the Bay Area, it's amazing that restaurants like this survive. Maybe we should have ordered the Pho, but the rice and vermicelli dishes were ordered were beyond disappointing--amongst the worse meals I've had in recent years. Very heavy on oil, greasy, poor quality meat, vegetables that were not fresh, and all the atmosphere of a Fast Food restaurant or utilitarian cafeteria. All that, and not especially cheap, even though I don't think price is the issue. More a matter of poor quality ingredients and less than great cooking.

Would clearly never be my choice in the Embarcadero Center area.

“Decent "pho" considering...”
Reviewed January 5, 2008

Decent "pho" considering it is at FiDi and the Embarcadero. Pricey though, as it's almost $10 for a large bowl.
