My son and I needed a change from Rochester Italian, so we headed for some pho. We weren't disappointed! We started with crispy egg rolls which were crisp and delicious. I had the beef special pho and the broth was perfume and flavorful. The beef was not premium, but overall very tasty. My son had the chicken pho and his... More

We ordered the House Vermicelli Noodles, which is normally a great cold Vietnamese dish. The noodles were fine, so were the vegetables and sauce. The spring rolls were on the small side, but the real problem was that the pork was overcooked to the consistency of leather strips and the shrimp were not even partially peeled, so they still had...

Have had lunch here several times while fishing near by. Always great food, good service, ambiance, well not so great. Old building, right off of 495, convenient, on street parking. Very reasonable prices, great value. Surprised to find such good Vietnamese food on Rochester.

We were in Rocester for Brick City, the family weekend at Rochester Intitute of Technology. We had a group of eight people who wanted to get dinner of the beaten path. We went to this small cozy Vietnamese restaurant that does not take reservations. We called 15 minutes ahead, and yet agreed to hold 2 adjacent tables for us. The... More

The place was packed out and the servers were running around like headless chickens. It took about ten minutes to be seated, which we didn't mind as we could see they were rushed off their feet, but an extra server or even a busser would of helped. Food was delicious and very good value for money, love their peanut sauce!

Taste the broth before you add sauce. Stopped there for PHO. Friendly wait staff. Broth is very flavorful and satisfying. I will stop again next time I am in town. Best PHO so far!!

This seems to be the place for the best Vietnamese food in town. The prices are reasonable, portions generous, and food is tasty. It's not exactly a budget restaurant, but it's not a trendy, upscale restaurant either. Still, it tends to attract an urban hipster crowd, as well as Asians.

The dining room is small, and could use remodeling. The menu was decent, and the atmosphere was kind of junky. The food itself (specifically the pho and tofu) was absolutely delicious however. Would visit again.

I just love this place. I believe this may be the best pho I have ever had. You are not coming here for the ambience or the serenity, you are coming here for an extra large bowl of pho for less then 10$. I have been here 50 times and will come another 50. My favorite time to come is... More
