Very good soups and broths. Not too salty and very fresh and tasty. A little far up State Street for tourists...maybe but very good.

Nice change from typical SB menus. I love the pho with beef and rice noodles. Vietnamese iced coffee is a special favorite beverage. Service is sometimes a bit slow but thorough. Good location, lots of seating.
