This place has the best spring rolls I have ever had, anywhere! The pho is also fantastic during the cold winter days. The dining area is small and intimate and sometimes awkward for waiting for a table, but while its popular and often full, the...More

Wow, what a hidden GEM!! Went through all the reviews and couldn’t not try it. Best Pho is an understatement - it’s legendary, best ever. Been here two nights in a row. Great location, friendly staff, worth the walk off King street.

All good, you can't go wrong with an original Viet restaurant anywhere, and this was no disappointment.

Had lunch with a friend - food was authentic and very good, the service was speedy and spot on, and the small room gave it a quaint feeling. Recommend for casual dining.

What a find! Quaint location, delicious food, kitchen was speaking Vietnamese - about as good as you can get without flying to Vietnam. Lots of vgeterian options. Fantastic chicken pho.

Had to wait about 40 minutes to be seated, which was a bit annoying, but everything after that was great. Cheap prices, yummy food, giant portions. Will come back again.

This is a wonderful little restaurant with amazing food. We were fortunate to arrive just in time to get a table, it is small and seating is limited, well worth the wait. Everything we ordered was perfect from the summer roll starters to the Vietnamese...More
