I love the pho and the lunch special number two is my husbands favorite. The special is loaded with a sampling of pork chops, steak, chicken and shrimp! Plenty to share, but my hubby has no problem eating the entire plate on his own.

This restaurant is located near the Hilo Ship Dock area. We stopped for lunch. Had Pho and a Vegetarian rice dish for lunch. Both were quite good. Restaurant and Kitchen are nice and clean and bright. I will stop again.

I wasn't feeling too well, so wanted something that was vegetable-heavy. They were out of summer rolls, and no option to have the spring rolls to be not deep fried. I asked for a vegetable-heavy recommendation and the waitress did not understand. We sat for...More
