I have been here a few times and am always satisfied. As their name suggests, they serve traditional Vietnamese food. The place is unassuming, with about a dozen tables. The staff is friendly and the food is very good. Definitely worth a visit if you are looking for traditional Vietnamese dishes and you do not care about sophisticated ambiance. They... More

Colleagues and I went in here on recommendation from some of the locals for lunch. The place looks like an old Chinese restaurant, nothing fancy. Inside is not much better with old diner style chairs and paneled wood walls. There is a glass beverage case that houses the only drinks (outside of teas) that they have. Lunch can get very... More

I have been coming here since 1997. Well the owner has changed I still say this is the best place for pho in the whole Lehigh Valley. I literally can't be within a five-mile radius and not stop in here. The spring rolls are just absolutely fantastic and the bowls of noodles are so flavorful and delicious it makes you... More

I love this little Gem tucked in the cut in Allentown. This restaurant is very tiny, so be careful not to miss it. They have the best Authentic Vietnamese food here and I especially love their Pho and spring rolls. It is worth the drive to me to have cooking that tastes like my Mom's when she is so far... More

I eat pho once a week in many different restaurants. This is the most disappointing bowl I've ever tried. This pho seems like it was heated up and poured out of a can. The noodles taste like linguine. The broth taste burnt other than that there is no flavor. The bowls are much smaller than many other pho restaurants.

Great Pho, but I wish there was a home-style Vietnamese restaurant. Pho is good, but there is so much more to Vietnamese cuisine.

Really great food. Not many options in the area but out of all of them this place is the best. I grew up on pho but I don't make it myself. This is a great option when you can't get it homemade.
