I'm really glad I stumbled across this place over the weekend. Even more glad it's only a couple of minutes from my home. I enjoy a good Pho every now and again. My favorite place up near Polaris closed years ago. I've tried others around...More

Always a good experience here. Best pho on Columbus. Food comes out very quick and is authentic Vietnamese.

Phó was disappointing to me (summer rolls were only thing on menu we ordered that was decent). I expected better coming from a Vietnamese ran and owned establishment. I'm part Vietnamese and have traveled quite a bit in the States and other Countries. Love seeking...More

The extra-large pho was full of meats, but the broth was average. The noodle dish was too small for the price, and under-seasoned, especially as compared to other Vietnamese restaurants. Disinterested service, neither a hello nor a thanks or good bye.

This was my first time eating Vietnamese food- my wife, a friend and I loved it. The fact we were among the few white people in a pretty full cafe spoke volumes.

Thanks to my sharp-eyed wife, we ran across this little gem of a restaurant recently. It's easy to miss, in a down-on-its-luck shopping center. But what a find. We both had versions of the delicious, fragrant pho -- our go-to dish when trying out a...More
