Service is good, and generally friendly. We were surprised that the add-on soup was presented with the hot meal and thereby left us with the option of wither cold soup or cold food. Considering that the restaurant was nearly empty when we visited there was no need to hurry us along. The food is good, but clearly not freshly made... More

We've eaten here a few times and decided not to come back. There is a terrible smell when you first walk into the restaurant and it seems to get into the food because we still smell it when we get take out. We didn't get sick or anything like that but it was unpleasant and we ended up throwing out... More

Love this place...small - looks family owned...good service - great food and outstanding value for what you pay and what you get. You can order different sizes of bowls, but I never can finish regardless of what size I order...which is not a problem...because it is yet another great lunch tomorrow...

The food here is excellent, however, the service is terrible. They need to hire more help. If you go during your lunch hour you could wait 1/2 hour before anyone even ask what you want to order.

We ordered 4 dishes for take out and I tried all 4 and had issue with each of them. The bread for the Vietnamese sandwich was totally stale which was a major turn off. The chicken was very dry in my drunken noddles etc. It might have to do with being a Monday but still....:(

This place has the freshest Vietnamese Pho and fresh rice noodle rolls I have every tried. It is super reasonable, incredibly quick but friendly service and truly generous portions. Went twice in 2 days and wished we had a place like this closer to home.

This place is tucked into a mall complex so hard to locate if using the address and GPS. Well worth the effort. Monsoon season in Sac so Pho sounded good. This place does a brisk business both sit down and take out. Broad menu offerings which look interesting but I was here for Pho. I had the Pho Ga with... More

Good all around small restaurant in the Regal 16 theatre complex. Service was fast but not particularly cordial. Must have been close to closing time. Pho was good. Calamari appetizer was OK but smelled a bit fishy.
