This place is great for whomever wants to get a little feel of what Vietnam cuisine is. The pho is obviously great, but they have a large selection of other dishes. And very reasonably priced.

They have been at the corner of Rainbow and 39th for years and their food is always great! The flavors explode on your taste buds. Highly recommended!!!

Love going here.. They have amazing Pho, we drive 30 minutes just to eat the Pho here.. The bowl is huge and you will be full and the price is fantastic!

Old school family style restaurant. Went for the Pho on a recommendation. Was not disappointed. If you're in the KU Med area, stop in for a great bowl of Pho.

This is my favorite Vietnamese restaurant in Kansas City. The Shrimp Bun ($7) and Tofu & Veggies Stir Fried Noodles ($8) are my favorites. The soft spring rolls ($4) are my favorite appetizer. The restaurant is across the street from KU Medical Center.
