The pho is really not that very memorable, it's way off actually. However, the restaurant seems to be doing great business because it presents and markets itself very well to Boulder and the people and that live here... Please read between the lines and figure...More

About once a year, I eat here. It's good, but it's not authentic the way Vina Pho on 30th is, or any of the numerous places in Broomfield or Denver are. And that's fine. The broth is good, but seems to be missing an extra...More

It's a small restaurant, good for casual dinner. We had the pho and a japchae, both were delicious! The ingredients seemed fresh, service was good.

Delicious pho - we had the roast pork in beef broth. The fried egg rolls were a delight, too, as were the fresh spring rolls (nime chow) served with a tamarind sauce.

I eat a lot of pho at restaurants around the country. This one is not one of the best; indeed, the pho is tasteless and very average. And the prices are high for what you get. The staff definitely was not from any Asian country,...More

At first the price seemed a bit steep for a bowl of noodles, but because of their no tipping policy, it brought the bill down to reasonable. Nice outdoor patio, cozy inside. Pho was as good as most any pho, and perhaps a bit better....More
