The food was delicious (I had the Rice Vermicelle with chicken and chicken spring rolls) and it was very cheaply priced. The whole meal came out to $13. The staff were attentive and friendly and the place was clean with off-street parking for maybe 10 cars or so.

We ordered takeout for our last dinner in San Diego. All the food was good...Pho Soup was the best. Good size portions for a very fair price. This same $48 take out meal would have been $80 in CT. Our order was ready in less than 10 minutes.

Both my wife and I enjoyed the pho (soup), and would return. They also brought something special for the little 3-year old, and it was a positive experience. Our server was very polite and helpful. The parking was pretty tight, but apparently adequate.

Yes, its a good authentic pho dish like the famous Vietnamese Pho soup of beef rice noodle and chicken for my wife, it's really good and piping hot. With a side dish of veggie rolls with peanut sauce. If your around this area, drop by and taste the real Pho of Vietnam.

When the weather turns cold, even for one day :) we always head out and find Pho Soup, and this is one of our favorite places.

We went here and ordered take out to bring back to our resort for a nice dinner in. Highly recommend the spring rolls and any of the vermicelli dishes. We enjoyed tofu and shrimp. Friendly staff and great prices.

Discovered this little spot while running errands and went in for lunch. The place is clean and nicely decorated. We love Vietnamese food and we were happy to discover a great little spot with impeccable service and good food in Pacific Beach. Make sure to taste the great, authentic Vietnamese coffee!
