Stopped here after visiting the area on a walking tour. A very friendly welcome and great service. The beef pho was excellent. Best sweet potato fries we've had. The choice of bahn mi was very good with a welcoming vegetarian option. Beautiful flavours and worth the stop.

I was meeting up with an old friend going back over 25 years, one I hadn't seen in nearly a decade and well, catching up was the priority and unfortunately the food, specifically the two bánh mì sandwiches we had shared didn't leave any memorable impression. The options sounded fabulous, roast duck and fried cat fish, but as my old friend opined, "had better!" Since I was born in Vietnam and have traveled a lot, and thus have eaten plenty of bánh mì, I am in agreement.

My niece and I each had a classic banh mi with Vietnamese ham, their house bacon and pate. Wow, it was really good. I wish there's one in midtown as I will be queuing for my banh mi!

This place is awsome! Not too popular (yet) si thst's good.
Good service, nice place.
Best ramen in town! Really!
Not the traditional you may know but definitely the best I've tried.
Not too many options but that's ok.
I had the one with lemongrass chicken. Amazing!! It comes with extra sprouts, lime, jalapeño and basil so you add then to your taste.
Hoisin sause in the table, a must.
Highly recomended!

It's a busy spot, but we only waited 15 minutes. They had a high chair ready for our baby and immediately had water for us. We both ordered a pho and it came impressively quick! Not only quick, but delicious. A must do for pho lovers! Our baby loved the noodles
