Lots of noodles and chicken in the pho. Had to add some basil and chili to give the stock a hit of flavour.

Friendly service and amazing food! Our favourite Vietnamese shop in bustling Footscray. Always very busy with the locals which must mean a good thing!

This is our favourite Vietnamese restaurant in Footscray. The food is great, and it has a relaxed, calm atmosphere. Its more like a cafe than a restaurant, and they've always welcomed our daughter.

We often have soup here after shopping at Little Saigon or the market. Food is always good. I'm particularly fond of the wonton soup. Great stock.

Noticed that this eatery is always full during lunch rush and often with a line outside. My daughter and I tried the bun mam and pho dac biet - comparable if not better than what I've tried in Vietnam.

We were in Footscray and hankering for good and authentic Vietnamese food, and chose this one after walking around Footscray's centre. The menu is very comprehensive, and the food as good as we could've hoped for. We were so impressed that we returned to have our final meal (of this Melb trip) here before heading for the airport. Great service... More
