Price is very reasonable and it's one of the best/decent Pho around Philadelphia. The server needs better customer service as an improvement. They have Thai food on the menu, but i did not try it.

No frills place with an expansive menu, just in case you have a hankering for frog. We look forward to returning our quick meal was great and we were stunned at the great prices. Two pork chops with rice for $6, our son approved too.

Very authentic Vietnamese pho (rice noodle) place. Order combination of different variety of beef (beef or tendon, well-done or rare). Really good soup base, put additional garnishing such as mint leaves, bean sprouts, hot peppers, lime, etc. Clear skin spring roll pretty good as well....More
