Everything about Pho Ba Luu is terrific, from the decor to the atmosphere, from the creative interpretations of Vietnamese food to the staff. I appreciated that there were vegetarian options, and tried both the vegetarian pho and the tofu banh mi -- both were outstanding....More

I‘ve had noodle bowls and spring rolls before, but this food was so much more flavorful. Plus the setting in the back deck is extra special with the courtyard and adjacent boutiques. Very cozy, friendly welcoming staff.
