The pho here is excellent all around. The soup is salty and rich and meaty in taste. They give enough meat, and the cuts are pretty good. There are enough bean sprouts, chilies, basil and limes for you to add (some places skimp). The large...More

Solid broth, and it came very quickly, like under 5 minutes. Also $9.50 for large pho with spring roll so that's not bad. They weren't super friendly, but the place is clean, has good broth and good noodles. Next time I will skip the beef...More

A hole in the wall with shared seating full of Asian people slurping on huge bowls of noodles steaming from fragrant broth, this was a good sign that this was authentic. Service was great with immediate attention and tea brought out right away. We both...More

My co-workers and I go there often for lunch. For $8 you can get a medium sized bowl that is very filling, or for $9 the large size that would be too much for me. If you're hungry, go for the special, where you can...More
