Small garden at its entrance. Traditional Vietnamese food. Very friendly server. Inexpensive food. Wish they have larger portion.

Good Vietnamese food, no frills. Service a bit slow but we enjoyed the experience. Would go back again for a quick meal.

The music was just too loud though. I think this is a west hollywood thing, but man its distracting. Their pho broth is great. Noodles were excellent. The chili sauce could peel paint. Great place.

I found this Vietnamese restaurant while stopping at the Ramada hotel nearby. I ate in the garden area near the entrance. This is very different from your normal settings but was a bit too close to local flats. My starter was very good but the main arrived when I was half way through it so was quite cool when I...

This was by far the best Pho restaurant we have ever been to! The spring rolls were nothing short of amazing with chicken and shrimp. They were hand made with fresh ingredients. The chicken pho soup was truly the best I have ever had! The chicken skewers were marinated and cooked to perfection and the tofu was divine. The service... More

We walked past it a few days ago and made it a point to eat there before we left WeHo. Did not disappoint. Great service and great food. Had the Pineapple Fried rice. Delicious. My partner like his food even though the server did not let my partner finish his beer before it was taken. Defiantly worth a visit- tasty... More

Hot soups on an unusually cool night in We Ho, this local eatery has a low key presentation on the outside, and a sophisticated kitchen inside.

Phonomenal is NOT memorable. Just "OK" Food. But the real drawback is the incredible poor service. They always seem to be understaffed. Although they have a patio, watch our for birds in the trees, you know what I mean! Also, the falling leaves and debris, Sit inside. Other better Vietnamese restaurants are better.

Staying in West Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
