The nondescript entrance, surrounded by several bails-bond storefronts belies what an exceptional restuarant lieu within! In the hear of downtown, near the courthouse, this gem was packed on Saturday 1:00pm and we had to wait a good 15 minutes. Well worth it!

It is not just the Pho that stands out here (but it was some of the best I've had), the spring rolls are such a delight of chewy, delicious pork and fresh shrimp. Makes you wonder about all the tasteless spring rolls you get other places! Cocunut shrimp was also tasty. However the star was the glazed BBQ pork and shrimp. OMG was it great!

Combo Pho had a great broth and I tried it because it contains tripe, tendons as well as the other meat goodies. If the can do those two meats well you know its great and they excelled! No smell or sliminess just great tender flavors.

Highly recommended. I will go back again and again...

Since I usually dine in San Francisco at Asian noodle houses I was quite surprised to find this noodle restaurant here in Modesto. The place was packed as it gets a large lunch crowd of downtown workers. The food was very good and service was excellent.

I eat a lot of asian food. I eat a lot of noodle soup. This place is a little hidden gem in the heart of Modesto. I make the drive just to eat here. I have eaten here 6 or 7 times now and have not been disappointed yet. The noodle soup is to die for. The chow mein? The best I have ever eaten. This is not you local Panda! This is quality authentic asian food-second to none.

While staying in Modesto for the weekend, came across this little hidden treasures of an eatery. Had Pho and Mongolian Beef, was very impressed, will definitely dine there again. Little hard to find even with GPS, but well worth the search.

This place is always packed. Not sure why, but it always attracts a hip crowd. The food is good, and very reasonably priced. Like most pho places, you can even share a meal which is not only very tasty, but cheaper than fast food.
