I found this hole in the wall when I was in high school around 2002. Everything on the menu is great but my favorite is the combination fried rice, it is the best I had in Austin I keep coming back. The egg rolls and flat noodle are super delicious too.

I drove 25 minutes to get here just to eat the "hu tieu dai thap cam." Pho is more well-known than hu tieu, however, I prefer hu tieu and bun rieu to pho. This is one of the few restaurants that offers hu tieu with the translucent glass noodles. I ate my entire large bowl. Only ingredient missing was ground... More

Four of us had dinner there last night. I had the combo fried rice, while my three companions all had bun. We all enjoyed the food. We all had Spring Rolls which were excellent! The place is very simply decorated (it's in a strip center with a laundromat). Prices were very reasonable. No alcohol. I'd go back!

Stopped by this pace for dinner and was satisfied. It's in a strip mall on the corner next to the entrance of an apartment complex. Low key front facade and limited parking in the front. Once you walk into this place you know you made the right choice. Place was packed with customers dinning inn and you can hear them... More

This great hole in the wall restaurant has long tables in the middle of the room which provide family style seating, as well as, single tables around the perimeter for those who wish to have their own seat. I have come to eat here twice when visiting and both times I loved it. The broth was delicious and the normal... More

We have been eating here for close to 9 years. We have eaten at many other Pho restaurants, but come back here for really good soup. I'm sure we will be back the next time we are in the Austin area.

Thankfully we arrived early for this hole-in-the-wall treat. Clearly this place is not a secret to many locals. Absolutely delicious food with fresh ingredients and great favors. Most of seating is family style so be prepared. I also appreciated that dishes came out when they were ready so everything was hot. Was a ton of food so be prepared to... More
