I always end up getting the Basil Chicken. It is just too good to pass up. The atmosphere is always nice. There's always a crowd at the noon hour. It's a great place for a business lunch or dinner with the family.

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.

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 restaurant had been around for a long and we had been there many years. We'd seen many changes of waiters and waitresses. Their Pho (Vietnamese Soup Noodle) is very good. The fried egg rolls had gone through some changes also. Had been good, then...More
