This was some of the best Pho I've had in the States. The portions are large. One bowl is enough for two people of decent appetite. However, My friend and I both order our own bowls, (I consume more broth and he eats more noodles) then get a take out container and combine our leftovers which makes one full meal... More

Stopped for lunch while we were out with a friend for Open Studios. My wife and I ordered the one entree combinations -- both with chow mien, one with sesame chicken and one with kung pao chicken. Although our entrees tasted good, the food was only lukewarm. Our friend ordered the #4 -- egg rolls -- which arrived almost ten... More

Recommended by friends ~ Now recommended by me! Had the Pho with chicken a few months ago and loved it. Had the seafood Pho recently and it was good too. Yesterday went back and had the Pho with chicken and a pork BonMi (Vietnamese sandwich made with pickled produce and good pork). So good. One of the things I like... More

I have been looking for a place to satiate my intense pho cravings, and this is it! I've tried Thai house(ok), Hong Kong Charlie's... More

We have eaten here several times and the food is always freshly prepared, which means a lot. Plus, it's not overly pricey. The downside is that sometimes they get behind and the food prep takes longer than it should. So if you're in a hurry, this might take longer than you're expecting. The restaurant is located in a strip mall... More

I eat Pho from Asian Express near the Capitola mall weekly, its fantastic. While the place is sandwiched between a Togos and a Starbucks in a pretty strip mall looking shopping center the soup within is excellent. I haven't tried the combo hot tray prepared foods, they may be great but just kinda look run of the mill to me... More
