Feels like we're in Vietnam! Very friendly. Warm day but they kept the place cool by keeping the door open and using fans. They used a fabric screen on the door to keep flies out. It was pleasant. The food was delicious including very fresh...More

This restaurant never disappoints. The pho's are flavorful and they dont scrimp on ingredients. My all time favorite is the porkchop #26! Yum! Grilled pork chops on a bed of rice, pickled veggies on the side with skewered grilled shrimp on top. Winner!
