The menu selection is tremendous. The price is very reasonable and the food tastes good. The waiter staff is very friendly and the restaurant is very clean as well.

Nothing warms the soul like a big bowl of Pho. Good prices and more than i can eat. They have lots to choose from and even fruit smoothies. Quick and convenient

The staff is welcoming and the pho is pho-nomenal. A great place to go when the weather turns cold and you want to warm-up.

There aren't a ton of amazing Pho places in the area, but this one is at least good. The broth of the pho I thought could be a little more flavorful but the meat and accompaniments were good and they have a full menu.

#52 Vietnamese spicy soup !!! Is the best. So good flavor and veggies herbs so fresh. Portions are huge. food is delicious. They have more than just Pho for those who don't like Pho. Stir fry's and fried rice other noodle dishes, some typical Chinese dishes also. Everyone here is very nice and efficient as well. I'm hooked.

We have been coming to this place since it opened. It has been two years and they are still our first choice when it comes to fresh great tasting authentic food. I can't get enough of Pho soups. # 18 rare beef noodle is a favorite. Same friendly staff. Same clean easy going ambience. Easy on the pocketbook.

First visit to this restaurant last night and had a good experience. Was in the mood for some Pho and bubble tea.Very easy to access from downtown Baltimore, I-95, 695, 70. We were immediately seated and orders placed very quickly. The Pho was good and well seasoned. Not the best in the area, far from the worst. Appetizers, sauces and... More

I have been looking for a great Pho place and this is it! We will definitely be back, their charbroiled meat is so good. Their shakes are also delicious, they taste very natural and homemade. Another good choice is the lime lemonade both good for a nice summer day.
