We stayed local and stumbled upon this family run restaurant!!!! In fact so impressed we went back twice!!! The fresh rice rolls are a must as is (not sure of name) the "street food" in the lettuce .... Yummo! The young man serving us was lovely and made our experience very enjoyable!!! Good value and highly recommend!

We went to this restaurant with no expectations since we had never tried Vietnamese cuisine....it was a very pleasant surprise. The food was excellent, the service prompt and courteous and the prices quite reasonable. Very close to the Asian Art Museum...

Have been tasting Pho around the world from Hanoi, Saigon to Paris 13, Litle Sagon and Moscow, Berlin... wherever Vietnamese people have set their foot settle in, but NO ONE can beat this Pho, especially the Pho of former owner also chef Jim.

Having been to Vietnam several times and learning to judge the Vietnam food and not the surroundings is also appropriate here. Neighborhood isn't the best, but not the worst. Food is tops prepared in authentic Vietnam style and flavors. Takes you back to Saigon! Enjoy. ...

Third time I go to the Bodega, over three years. I like this restaurant. Especially their nems that come with salad and green herbs. The best I know. The service is kind, efficient. Servers do care about customers. I like the cantina atmosphere

Visited Vietnam 2 years ago, this was the best Viet food I ever ate afterwards. The neighbourhood is not great, but certainly not dangerous.
