“Best in Ithaca”
Reviewed 11 July 2013

Cheerful waitstaff, tasty food, great presentation and moderately priced. The local Vietnamese and other Asians patronize the place which says a lot to me. It's always busy and you may have to wait to be seated but it is worth it.
The pho is divine and reminds me of the pho that I ate daily in Vietnam for five months. I'm there at least once a week. Go there.

“One of the better places to eat in Ithaca”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

Stopped for lunch - everything was very good. Service was very good. It was not crowded at the time, but I could see how it could get crowded quickly since it is a small place. All of the food seemed freshly prepared. Prices were reasonable.

“Well worth the wait!”
Reviewed 8 July 2013 via mobile

The resturant had a line out the door for dinner on a Saturday night. The 20-minute wait was well worth our delicious meal! Everything we ordered -- pho, crispy squid, vietnamese steak, dumpling soup, flounder with black bean sauce -- was so yummy! The meal was very reasonably priced to boot!

“Delicious, fresh food!”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

Decided to eat here while recently visiting Ithaca. Definitely was glad we came and my husband wanted to come back the 2nd day too, but I talked him into trying something different. Amazing food. No corkage fee if you BYOB. Great service.

“Fantastic - Can't Wait to Go Back!”
Reviewed 6 July 2013

So happy my daughter will be going to college in Ithaca, so that I have a reason to keep coming back here. The food is luscious, reasonably priced, and FRESH! I had the Pho and my wife had what looked like a salad of some type. Go early, as it seems to get quite busy later in the evening. Neighborhood nothing to write home about, so park in the lot across the street.
