I've only had the pho, which was pretty good. They were able to accommodate my family during a busy night, and the meal was good, aside from the two kids I brought! Try it out some day!

Came here to try a few different dishes like their BBQ pork with pho noodle soup. The taste of the pork was excellent, the soup base as well, but for a large bowl of pho, not enough noodles. The #46 yellow rice with shrimp, chicken...More

Delicious food served here with attractive presentation and reasonable prices. We had a one-hour dinner break with our daughter. Had a complete meal from 5-6pm. Enjoyed BBQ Shrimp and also #31. Garlic noodles and Imperial Rolls rock! Casual yet pleasant atmosphere.

Thought I'd go here solo for dinner based on prior decent reviews. First off, I'm far from an expert of Vietnamese food. I had the 5 spice chicken which was tasty, but I found it greasy and heavy. I also had the Ben tre spring...More

So glad we stopped here after checking out the brewery down the street. It was really crowded but only took about five minutes to get a table. However it was realistically over ten minutes before a waiter came over to take our order. Food was...More

My review "wow-delicious and tasty food" is misplaced. I wanted to review the Millbrae location, not South San Francisco.
