Was going to go to another restaurant nearby but got turned on by the menu in the window. We were a party of three that stopped in for a late lunch. Great servers…very friendly and a nice modern decor and design. One of us had the Lemongrass tofu salad, another person had the vietnamese Pho soup - Pho Ga (chicken)... More

The restaurant is in a strip mall near lots and lots of shopping nearby. I am not a fan of Pho, but the Salad bowl #40 is grilled pork, Vermicelli rice noodles, lettuce, cucumbers, pickled radish strips, carrot strips, with a vinegar type dressing served on the side. $9.95 and special, for $2.50 more order the soft drink/spring roll with...

Decor was very nice. Ate dinner at the bar which was very nice. They just had grand reopening . The food was very tasty! I eat at a lot of Pho restaurants and I would go back here. The staff was great.

Stumbled across this place while on a solo lunch search and decided to try it. I was glad I did. The Pho Ga (chicken & rice noodle) was good (order the small unless you are really hungry), atmosphere was nice and the service was good. They have a full bar so a dinner stop might be in order.

Best Pho in Tukwila! I usually get the pho, but this time I had the lemongrass stir fry with tofu. There were tons of veggies and a great tasting sauce. My Mom loved her shrimp pho. It was flavorful, was a generous portion for the small size and had lots of shrimp in it. Our service was very friendly, attentive... More

These places are nice and clean. The food and decor are organized and fresh. But the food is not inspired or authentic. It is a little bland, which Vietnamese food should never be. The portions are large and the prices are very good. So, if you don't mind adding a little saracha sauce to your pho, this is a very... More

we flew in to Seattle from the east. So while it was only noon there, our bodies had been up for a day already. Went there based on the recommendation of a friend in the area who met us for lunch. The restaurant seemed a little dead for the lunch time with a full shopping area, though that might just... More

The staff, the setting and the food were all high quality! I was using a Groupon and felt totally welcomed by the waitress, unlike some Groupon places that make you feel like you're a cheap skate because you're on a discount.

I had been away from Toronto and was craving some good Vietnamese Pho. The serving was generous - though it lacked some flavours that are typical of pho, they did provide the bean sprouts and also basil but some other herbs were missing. Otherwise it was a good choice for a cold and rainy evening. The server was attention and... More
