4.5/5. Definitely recommend. The food tasted just like home! I got the rice dish with beef and shredded pork. It was super tasty, especially the beef, very well-seasoned. If they were a little more generous with the beef, I would give a 5/5. But I'm not complaining though, because the price was super affordable. This place is very good for... More

Very authentic Vietnamese pho (rice noodle) place. Order combination of different variety of beef (beef or tendon, well-done or rare). Really good soup base, put additional garnishing such as mint leaves, bean sprouts, hot peppers, lime, etc. Clear skin spring roll pretty good as well. Definitely get the Vietnamese coffee.

It was my first visit to Philly. To explore the city, I walked to the City Hall for sightseeing. I found this restaurant via Tripadvisor and decided to check it out. It is located inside the China Town and surrounded by other Chinese stores and restaurants. The restaurant was small. I had the beef and stripes pho with shrimp spring... More

Sooooo many noodles! You will not believe the amount of noodles that you get in this ginormous bowl of PHO!! Chunks of seafood here and there if you order the Seafood pho.

Found the place average at best. The spring roll is definitely not recommended as there is nothing inside but noodles and the sauce it came with was way too heavy on the fish sauce. The Pho i had was a good but nothing outstanding.

Authentic Vietnamese soul food. Located at the corner of Chinese town in Philly, this place is great for those who love authentic Vietnamese cuisine. Happily recommend.

This is my number one spot in Philadelphia. The food is amazing and it's really inexpensive. The dining is definitely a tight fit and sometimes you are sat next to other groups but it's never been an issue for me. On the second floor they have a round table with a lazy susan for larger groups. All their food has... More

This is a wonderful Thai Viet resterant in Chinatown in Philly about a 10 minute walk from city hall square. Small but clean with great service. I was trying to pick a shrimp meal but was informed by the waiter that my first two choices were shrimp in the shells with heads attached. I like craw dads that way but... More

Here in February this year. The place was busy. The food was wonderful and the service was great. Will be back next time I'm in Philly. Dress is casual. Enjoy.
