Pho broth was good along with the pho assortment of options. Grilled shrimp was great. Whatever the pork with the pink edge and sticky rice, was a really nice change. Beef fried rice took a LONG time to come out. The Pho with meatballs, broth was good, dog loved the meat balls, me, not so much. Other than the beef... More

This is one of those places near the UCSD campus so it's filled with students. The waiters aren't going to pamper you, just take your order, quickly, without smiling and back at ya when the food's ready. It's almost like an episode of Seinfeld and the Soup Nazi. And like the Soup Nazi, the pho is really good! If you're... More

We went for lunch guided by our usual criteria of seeking out busy places which seem frequented by locals. The place was fairly full but service was efficient and fairly quick. The beef Pho was very tasty, the ingredients were fresh and the spicyness scale was closer to what is probably found in Vietnam. My wife asked for a 5... More

I have a place I frequent in Vegas so I am just very critical... The Pho wasnt bad and my boyfriend thought it was great. The only thing I was bothered by was the fact every pho dish was a large only... and it was $9 for pho

They were very generous with the meat, and noodles in my bowl. Broth was excellent. Definitely not the best I have ever had, but it was very good. Price was excellent. Staff was very hands off. Let you eat your soup in peace.

We came here for lunch on November 26th. We were shown a table but after 10 minutes of trying to get a server, we ended up leaving. Tables near us were getting served but the waiters avoided us and left us at our table for 10 minutes. We are an interracial gay couple, both professional and well dressed. I have... More

This spot was super yummy and walking distance to the Sheraton La Jolla. No wait and the menu was fairly priced given the area. Recommend very highly!

Awesome good! We ate here a more than once. I had the beef stew pho! Super yummy. My only complaint is it was super cold inside. I was unable to sit inside and had to move outside.
