There's nothing like pho after a tough day on the trails in the Black Hills. Seated immediately, and food came very fast. Had the Vietnamese spring rolls and the beef pho, both tasty. Prices reasonable, 10+ for a large pho bowl and 7-8 for apps. No problems taking credit card.

Tasty pho. The Banh Mi was also pretty good. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. Overall, nice atmosphere with fairly priced food.

After learning that Rapid City has a great Pho shop, I was excited to give Pacific Rim Cafe a try. The restaurant was empty, but as the hostess was busy performing other tasks we still had to wait to be seated. Perhaps a small casual restaurant like this might function better if the guests seated themselves? I ordered the large bowl of Pho with rare beef. The food arrived quickly. The broth was delicious! Rich and beautifully seasoned. The portion of beef was very generous. However, the portions of jalapeno and basil were on the small side. Overall, the meal was hot and excellent, but the service was cold from start to finish.

I usually have different variations of their Pho. So far the best in Rapid City. Fresh ingredients! The service is great and timely. The prices are reasonable. The atmosphere is clean.

The menu is somewhat limited.
The Vietnamese egg rolls (which I assume we're supposed to be cha gio) were a bit greasy (generous portion, though). But the pho was positively heavenly, maybe the best broth I have ever had. Really a delight. Service was friendly, restaurant was clean. NB: They now close at 8:30pm on weekdays, not 9pm, as indicated online.
