This is a basic "no frills" place with a very simple menu (just a couple pho choices and spring roll - and different choices on different days). The pho was delicious, the service was friendly and quick, and the prices were reasonable. Will definitely return...More

Always fantastic. Love the shrimp and beef Pho!!! If you want it a little spicer add the red chilli paste. Chicken pho which is on Sundays only is fantastic although I never make it on time, they ran out of it by 10am.

Took my daughter here today, she has never had Vietnamese food. She really enjoyed it. They do not have a menu here, they have a board on the wall behind the counter and it's the same food every week, just changes for different days. Today...More
