Passing through Santa Rosa decided to give this restaurant a try.Plus point is that the portions where huge.Unfortunately ,and speaking as one who has travelled extensively in vietnam -this is way off the mark.Lots of bland carboydraytes and missing the freshness and aromatic vegetables and herbs that are the hallmark of vietnamese cooking.All in a fasst food type enviroment.

I have not had a less than stellar meal here since it opened several years ago. I usually get food to go and my favorite is #9 a BBQ pork combination with brown rice. It is enough for three meals and is just wonderful.

Cheap food. Cold meat in a dish that was supposed to be a hot meal (House Special Combo). Artificially tasting pork balls, chewy chicken, tasteless beef and overall blandness. If you like nutrition in your meal - look somewhere else. Also they sell some sort of chemical tasting ice tea called Sharetea. I asked and got a 0% added sweetener... More

This is a sister restaurant and smaller than the original. The menu is apparently more limited but the food is really good. We loved it! Wish it was in our town!

Absolutely love this restaurant. We start with the Tofu Vegetarian Spring Rolls and Thai Tea with coconut milk. I always have the Shaking Beef with Rice. The meat is tender and even though the meat is tasty already the dipping sauce just adds a nice touch to the flavor. My companion has tried several different vegetarian dishes and has always...

My family and I frequented this spot for years for business lunches and family dinners. While the people who run the location are lovely and the Pho is tasty, I found I liked the remaining menu less attractive compared to other spots. The spring rolls and peanut sauce didn't compare to new local Vietnamese eateries and the flavors didn't taste... More

This location on Cleveland Avenue started as a McDonalds and has been the home of many failed restaurants since. Good news though...this one should stay. The menu is limited but very good. The order at the counter makes it a cheap meal and the food is very good.

The building looks like it used to be a chain fast food restaurant. You order at the counter and then they bring the food to your table. Service is fast. The pho was good, nothing outstanding but was sufficient. Restaurant was in walking distance from the motel we were staying at. Good for a quick inexpensive meal.

I guess the highlight of the meal was the peanut sauce. Otherwise, I was unimpressed by the spicy lemongrass tofu and vegetables. The tofu was not spicy, the carrots were raw, and the other vegetables were bland. Really a boring dish. The servers were nice.
