Great lunch place with a pleasing aroma upon entering the restaurant. The place actually is too small for the popularity of this gem. I had fresh spring rolls which were fresh indeed with a sweet dipping sauce. Followed by a vermicelli salad with shrimp, chicken and lettuce. Again a sweet sauce came with it. All dishes at other tables looked... More

I have been coming to this little family-owned East Side staple and I am never disappointed. A lovely remodel changed them from a hole in the wall to a nice, cozy modern Cafe. The food is as good as always. I have such a hard time deciding, it is ALL AMAZING

We tried this place for my birthday meal. It was great --except for the cold air every time the outside door was opened. We had 4 different dishes and each was great and unique. My kids love pad thai and liked this one a lot. My daughter who asked for hers to be spicy wished she had more spice on... More

Had dinner with my daughter. She tried their fried wontons and I tried their egg rolls. The wontons had a large helping of filling and were very crispy. The egg tools were among the best I've tasted. I had their combination pad tai - very good indeed and my daughter had a vegetarian option with lightly fried tofu. I'll be... More

My family loves to eat at this place. You can't really go wrong with anything you order. The pho is really good. We got the pork belly with Bok Choy, one my favorites. The classic fried rice is one of my personal favorite dishes. You HAVE to try the Pork Belly fried rice if you have never tried it before.... More

The pho is amazing. Good broth. I love the pork skins on the broth. Place is a little small. I wish they would expand it soon. But give it a try! You'll love it!

Tilapia curry was good. I've heard that their pho is pretty good too. Very slow when we went in and the waiter (first male server I've seen there) was on top of everything.

The restaurant is small and when it's busy, it's busy! There is street parking only. Service-Hit or Miss depending on who you get as a waiter/waitress. Getting water right away is the main issue and sometimes, getting the food is super slow. 3/5 stars. Food: I've had their pho (Combo) and it is good. This isn't my preferred pho place... More

I love this place. Staff is friendly, and the food is excellent. I always get the papaya salad - fresh, cool, spicy. Grilled beef salad is nice, too.

Loved it the first time so we went back again! Service speed has greatly improved so they totally deserve 5 stars!! We got the Pad Thai, Pineapple Fried Rice, Sweet and Sour Chicken, and Fried Pork Belly Fried Rice. We also got a side of cream cheese Wontons. The rices were delish. Pineapple had a wonderful flavor. The pork belly... More
