Very reasonably priced Pho that you can choose from three soup sizes: small, medium, large. Small is actually quite enough for one person even when you are hungry. Great selections for apertizer of spring rolls and rice wraps for $5 or under.

I ate mixed beef with tripe etc pho which is tasty and good value but not the best. I ordered shrimp spring rolls not expecting them to be deep fried which I did not like.
