It's a Vietnamese Restaurant with a bit of french influence. It has a variety of noodle soups and dishes, and the ones we've tried have all been tasty. Their "Banh" or French bread sandwiches are fantastic, our entire family loves them! But beware though, as they put slices of jalapeno chilies in the sandwiches which you might want to remove...

Found this resto after shopping at Ross and on my way toCVS. Food is good and their serving is about right. I guess they serve them in different servings but I got a regular one and I got full.

I guess Simi Valley has its "Geno's vs. Pat's" debate about Vietnamese Restaurants (if you are not familiar with "Geno's vs. Pat's" then Google it). I've eaten at both several times and for me, Pho So 1 wins out by a large margin. The selection is larger, food is tastier with more complexity in ingredients and flavor. You will also... More
