We've tried many Beef Pho, including those from Vietnam. But the beef noodles at Pho Kim Long has got to be the best! Huge portion of noodles with loads of ingredients at an affordable price. The taste of the soup was sweet and rich. Good to the last slurp!

Kim long is a good place to have food either solo or with family or friends. The price is affordable for most people in Bay Area.
