Stopped by for early lunch after doc apt at KU med. tried Pho first time. So good. Hard to eat. Messy. Ha. I had egg rolls. I loved it all. The atmosphere was strange. Will go back every time I’m at doc now.

Pho cures everything. Very good Bun. However, the dish that sets this place apart from it's Columbus Park counterpart is SALTED CRISPY SQUID. Do it. Also, if you're not drinking Vietnamese coffee, you're doing it wrong.

The exterior of this place looks dreary. And that's why we skipped it the first night in KC. But this is the perfect example of not judging a book by its cover. The food is fresh and delicious! The service is friendly and fast. Even...More

Kicking myself for having driven past thisd place for years without stopping in. Admittedly, the outside and entrace (including sign on the door admonishing the use of 'indoor voices') are a bit off-putting. Once you get seated (which is usually instantly) and absorb the aroma...More

Just down the block from the Holiday Inn Express. Easy take away orders. And the food is very good food.

Hi Anne! Yes, there are a quite a few gluten free options here but I'd definitely talk to a server about items that have small amounts of wheat like soy sauce and hoisin that they not only cook with, but are also used as... More
