This Vietnamese restaurant is located behind the George r brown convention center. It is a good choice for lunch if you are at the convention center as it's just a couple of minutes walk away. It's also a good choice if attending a dynamo soccer game and lots of fans do just that. Same applies for a baseball game at... More

I was in Houston for business. This restaurant was recommended by a colleague. I'm so glad I tried it out. The food is fantastic. You must try the duck salad. It's very refreshing. Parking lot is tight so get there early. It is now one of my go to restaurants whenever I'm in Houston.

I've only had pho a handful of times but so far this place was the best! The flavor of the broth was so good. It seemed really authentic!

Excellent Vietnamese food just around the corner from the Houston convention center. Clearly also very popular with the locals. Nice change of pace from Texas barbecue!

Very good authentic Vietnamese food in the middle of downtown Houston. Portions are large so I recommend sharing. The restaurant does not serve alcohol but they allow you to bring your own wine and beer that you can purchase in the small supermarket next door. Service is fast but one must be patient because not all of the staff is... More

The beef pho and BBQ pork fried rice were excellent! Definitely one of the best we've ever had. Service was also very fast and polite.

Great food and excellent service. BYOB. Tofu dishes are excellent as are the beef and rice. Go early and it is easy parking and no wait. Otherwise make a reservation for a Saturday visit.

This place is just a classic. Hard to have a bad meal and everything I have had were delicious. I would recommend the duck salad, chargrilled pork in soft rice paper, coconut curry shrimp and broccoli, and any of the pho. My boyfriend also says place is a must try if you are ever in Houston (especially the #5 chargrilled... More
