This place serves really excellent Vietnamese beef soup. Some days they have chicken soup and/or shrimp soup, but I've never had them. The menu is really limited but the food is very good! The soup is served with basil, sprouts, and a lime. Pepper sauce...More

Stopped for dinner the other night. Was hoping for chicken pho but it is only available on Sundays. The options were beef or shrimp (or both). The beef pho was really good.

Always fantastic. Love the shrimp and beef Pho!!! If you want it a little spicer add the red chilli paste. Chicken pho which is on Sundays only is fantastic although I never make it on time, they ran out of it by 10am.

We are regulars here, been going her for almost 20 years. Consistently served the best Pho around. One of my favorite restaurants.

There is always a line at lunch but so worth the wait. Menu is simple and the beef Pho is served fast and delicious. Best place around, not fancy but the food is the best and the prices are excellent!! Best value and taste around!!

Took my daughter here today, she has never had Vietnamese food. She really enjoyed it. They do not have a menu here, they have a board on the wall behind the counter and it's the same food every week, just changes for different days. Today...More

Every time I come here it is spot on. The sate is probably the best I've had as well. The staff is friendly and the food is delicious. They don't have a large menu, but what they do, they do it right.

A friend of mine brought me here for the first time. He got the large Pho and I got the medium one. Believe me, the medium size was plenty big for me. I got the Beef Pho which was delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant...More

I stopped here on a cold rainy day for the perfect cure for this kind of weather. Shrimp pho with savoy hot broth, rice noodles. Srirachi sauce, bean sprouts, mint leaves and lime in the side to flavor to your own liking. Awesome delicious spring...More

Went here during lunch and man were they busy. I was a bit confused about whether to just sit, or order at the counter... but a man came and told us to sit. I didn't see a menu, but turns out it's on the board...More
