Pho cures everything. Very good Bun. However, the dish that sets this place apart from it's Columbus Park counterpart is SALTED CRISPY SQUID. Do it. Also, if you're not drinking Vietnamese coffee, you're doing it wrong.

The exterior of this place looks dreary. And that's why we skipped it the first night in KC. But this is the perfect example of not judging a book by its cover. The food is fresh and delicious! The service is friendly and fast. Even my son, who is a picky eater, loved it there (he had Banh Xeo, the... More

We strayed from our usual Vietnamese place to try something different. we regretted the decision. Service was fast and friendly. Food was average at best. We started with spring rolls which lacked any flavor - just rice noodles, lettuce, and meat. I had beef pho which tasted like instant mix. The plate of add-in vegetables was very small. My husband...

I don't know why I have never written a review of this restaurant, as my friend and I have eaten there once a month for several months. My friend's favorite dish is the Pho- Beef Broth Soup-- Rice noodles in homemade beef broth. Served with a plate of cilantro, bean sprouts, lime wedge, and jalapeno pepper on the side. I... More

Kicking myself for having driven past thisd place for years without stopping in. Admittedly, the outside and entrace (including sign on the door admonishing the use of 'indoor voices') are a bit off-putting. Once you get seated (which is usually instantly) and absorb the aroma and browse the menu, however, you're starting on the raod of becoming a real fan.... More

Just down the block from the Holiday Inn Express. Easy take away orders. And the food is very good food.

This is one of my favorite restuarants. Food is always fresh, hot and delicious. Took my mother there after a doctors appt. she loved the Appetizer Sampler with the Sweet Potatoe fries were her fav! Look forward to going there again and everyone I've taken there has loved the food. Never disappointed.

This place is very close to KU hospital where is used to work. So it was an obvious choice for lunch and takeouts to my place. The Pho is not bad, the fried rice and noodles are really good. The prices are affordable and service was fast. ( I only ordered takeout). Parking seemed okay but can be a problem... More

Great pho, spring rolls, chicken hot pot, and fried rice. Also delicious appetizers and you have to try the coffee. Locals always rate this place the best in polls and they have the awards to prove it. Best on the Kansas side!
