It was the best I ever had. The tofu was perfectly fried. It came with a nice variety of vegetables and... More

Extremely clean place and well decorated. Music was relaxing and low but loud enough to enjoy the variety. Service was on point. Staff treated us well and brought the food super quick.

Even at the very end of the day, the soup was great and the service was friendly. I really enjoyed the Pho, it is very authentic and kick a cold every time.

The lady taking my order on the phone was super friendly and hospitable. She told me on the phone it would be 30 min. I called at 7:30z I arrived exactly 30 minutes after placing my order and I still had to wait an additional 15 min for my order. It was certainly a busy Saturday night. We ordered: The... More
