Had lunch with a friend. Both had Pho soup, vegetarian for me, shrimp for him. Both were very good. The spring rolls were very good as well.

Have eaten here numerous times over the years but haven't written a review. Obviously it is good as I keep coming back with family and friends, who all enjoy the food. Numerous items to enjoy, and I always have a Thai ice tea... or two. Great pad Thai for those who want to go "safe". The clay pot fish or... More

I first tried this place 16 years ago, and I've been a fan ever since. It's located in a beautiful area. Everything I get each time is always great. Must give a try if you're in the area. The pho is ALWAYS my favorite.

Great food that hasn't deviated from the original flavors that I have come to love. The restaurant is on the small side and is always packed, but rest assured you can get your food to go.

Although the ambiance is average, the food was hot and flavorful. The pho is on a bowl large enough to feed two. The shrimp dishes had really nice seasoning. Pleasant wait staff too!
