We have loved eating Vietnamese cuisine and have missed it since our local Vietnamese restaurant closed. We had noticed this restaurant on our walk in Hillcrest and the menu immediately attracted us so we made a decision to eat here during our 7 day stay. I can safely say that if we had tried it sooner, we would have eaten... More

I've eaten so much pho before that I sometimes forget that not all pho is created equal. Some can be skimpy on the meat and others too salty or watery. However, this restaurant will not let you down. The taste of the broth is amazing without even adding anything extra and the meat they give you is good quality with... More

Having been to Vietnam and eating Pho every day I can really recommend this place. The vegetarian version is very delicious.

We had rice noodles and pork and it was very fresh and good, service was fast, price was good and the restaurant is clean. The menu had several choices on it and most people were eating pho which looked very good. They also had 1/2 orders for some things.

The prices are very good. Customer service is outstanding. The summer rolls were ok but obviously prepared ahead of time...not fresh since rice paper was cold. The pho broth was very flavorless. We had to add tons of hot sauce. They had no fish sauce or soy sauce out on the tables. This place is perfect for people who do... More
