This has the best fried rice ever eaten. Their soups are outstanding and well worth a trip. Inexpensive but good food.

From what I have been told the Owner is a Guy named Joe Kraintz who is a Donut Maker at Red's Donuts. He owns the Business and says it is in his Name and... More

The Vietnamese food here is great but in the evening this place lacks atmosphere. We were nearly alone around 8:30 pm which felt lonely. We like Vietnamese food and their pho soup is excellent.

Being a transplant from the Bay area, I admit to being a pho snob and have had trouble finding some decent pho in the Monterey Peninsula. This restaurant may not look like much on the outside, but the pho is delicious with meaty broth and lots of meat. Very fresh bean sprouts, basil, jalapenos and lime complete the usual offering...

Walked into this place looking for some good Pho on a visit back to Monterey area. This place is fun. I've been back several times before. It is almost like a sports bar with multiple big screen TVs above the bar! Really cool. While their food is good it is inconsistent. One night the Pho is amazing the next it... More

Went for the chicken pho. It was terrific. Not salty but vibrant flavor. Oodles of noodles. Started with generous portion of spring tools. They were so fresh and tasted wonderful. Prices are right on. One non foodie comment. Loved the ceiling.
