The food is great. The usual spot since college years BUT for me, enough is enough. I can not stand their service. Very rude, and the owner talks to you like you owe him a favor for eating there. I guess if you don't mind the attitude problems, this place is good for you.

Great place I've been coming here for over 5 years! Love the food the service is average they want to get your order in and out ASAP. It can be a little off putting but the more you go the more you understand and they really do know who you are! Which is funny to me my friend have a date there almost weekly then we "rest" for a while start up and if we show up without each other it's noticed. They know your order, where you prefer to sit, I love it.

They are not rushing you in and out but let me say it gets crowded quickly on the weekends!! This is the only "soup joint" lol that is serving searing hot soup in the height of a summer heat wave with a line outside!!! And guess what they order inside?! No other place compares I've tried a few and always leave wishing I hadn't lol. Don't expect modern art or the like its a genuinely RAW and honestly just wonderful food so just enjoy and wait if you catch the line lol

This was the best and most authentic pho place in Richmond. Quality has slipped dramatically. Don't expect much beef in your pho. I miss the old Pho So 1. Lucky that there are still great Pho joints in town

This place gets packed quickly at lunch time, I have never seen a Pho place so busy with locals, businessmen, families etc all for Pho. For a good reason though, the Pho rocks. After several excellent lunches, I took my whole family there, where all my kids were introduced to Pho for the first time. They LOVED it, and beg to go back. A great whole in the wall, friendly place, and an excellent value.

Great, cheap food. If you are looking for ambiance, this is not the place. But the service is fast, and food is delicious! I come here regularly with my family- great place for children and adults
