Absolutely love this place. I have been coming for years and just can't get enough of those crispy rolls! This whole menu is perfection, and the fact that they serve the full menu till 12AM is really something to be reckoned with in Portland. If...More

i ordered the combo pho as a test and, as a pho fan, is the best i’ve had. there was a ton of sirloin, big tender chunks of tendon and tripe, and loads of meatballs. but my judgement was on the broth, which was five...More

The food is okay, but only order take-out if it's necessary. It's busy, and it's full of young people who are out late, and tired, so manners aren't really a thing at this place. It's okay, but it does put a damper on the vibe....More

Good pho and also good vegan options. Reasonable prices. High energy atmosphere. Fairly loud rap music. Maybe a bit like Saigon GI bar back in the day. Not so good for quiet conversation or extended time over dinner. No reservations accepted, but line to order...More

How have I not been here until now? And how did it take a friend visiting from out of town to get me there? Less than $40 for ten happy hour items and two beers almost seems criminal. And that was before I tasted the...More

I wish I had had more time to sample more of the cocktails. My favorite was the Single Knight -- lapsang souchuong tea/bourbon/orange bitters/pho syrup. This combo was unlike any other cocktail I have tasted. And then good food on top of it. Yeah it...More

You stand in line looking over the menu and when it's your turn you tell them what you want. Pay the bill, they assign you a table and your food comes out soon after. Not great, okay for lunch. very noisy

This was a very noisy hectic place. The food was not very good. The combo plate with rice had various meats that were all dry and over cooked. The papaya salad needed more flavor of lime and some heat. The price is reasonable. The line...More

I really like their train pho with all kinds of beef cuts. The soup is really good, especially the beef balls. 味道很好,性價比很高,牛肉丸很好吃,料很足,雖然外帶,但可以分開裝,河粉不會軟。非常好吃。音樂太吵。

This place is non stop with a constant queue to get in. The pho was incredibly flavorful and the chicken wings sticky spicy sweet, up there with the best. Nice buzzy vibe.

They order on a first come, first served basis. The people ordering take-out were helped when there were no tables, but I think that had more to do with the people in the queue than the restaurant staff. Either way, the... More
