I traveled two hours to meet my brother here for lunch on the basis of good reviews. It was a delight to find very good Vietnamese food in the middle of Massachusetts. The restaurant is in a little strip mall with about twelve tables and very clean. It was half full when I arrived at 11:45 and completely full by noon. The waitress was very friendly and made helpful suggestions about things we might like to eat. I knew I wanted pho, and I was not disappointed. The broth could have had a little deeper beef flavor, but it was beautifully seasoned, and I liked it more and more as I was eating it. The beef was flavorful and tender, and there was plenty of basil to throw in. My brother began with crispy eggplant, recommended by our waitress. It was fantastic--little fried cubes of eggplant bursting with subtle flavors. I wish i had ordered it too. But there was more to eat. My brother had vermicelli with egg rolls on top and a wonderful sauce for dipping and pouring into the noodles. The cylindrical egg rolls were crisp but the filling--pork, I think--was only fair; the sauce saved them. Being adventurous, I had barbecued quail, eight crisp quail halves coated with a delicious sauce. It was messy eating, but a real pleasure. The restaurant serves beer and wine, including Vietnamese beer The lemonade and iced espresso are a little pricey, but otherwise the prices are very reasonable. I don't know if I'll ever get back to Leominster, but if I do, I'll certainly eat here again.
