This is the best Pho I have had outside of the Pacific! The staff was extremely friendly and the service punctual. I would highly recommend a visit here if you like Vietnamese food.

Been here a few times. It's right off the road 146. Today was better than ever. Attentive wait staff. Would return for more

I'm a big fan of Vietnamese soup and this place delivers. I've tried other places in the area and keep coming back here. Very clean place with a friendly and attentive staff. The spring rolls are really good, too.

I ordered online through Letseat.com for the food I got from here and it was delivered to my home. I wasn't what you would call "enthralled" with the order I got. The House Special Fried Rice would have likely been fine except for the red pepper flakes throughout it which made it so miserably hot, I couldn't eat it (at... More

Completely thrown by the name but the food is fresh and authentic. Its cafe style so nothing fancy but great for pho and noodles if you are looking for something simple and tasty

The food was pretty good for the most part. The "mild" wasn't mild for me, it still had way too much. But for not knowing what we were getting it was ok.

I was greeted immediately upon entry and shown to a booth. My Pad Thai and coffee were in front of me within 7 minutes. The pad Thai was a bit on the spicy side for me (I'm glad I ordered the mild) and lacked the color I am accustomed to. The egg and sprouts could be increased. The peanut and... More
