Well I suppose I could stop with the title. You get it I am sure. This is not an area known for the quality of its restaurants or the neighbourhood. A little too far out of town for the smart set and the only local attraction is the Amtrak Staples Mill Road Station about half a mile up the road.... More

Hey, believe me when I tell you you can't go wrong with this place. I love their rice paper rolls and though I can't tell you what item I eat the most I can tell you there hasn't been a bad choice yet. The people are friendly and when you need something they will come right away for you. The... More

For years we have eaten spring rolls, pho ga and other delicious dishes. Even though we live an hour away, we try to go as often as possible. We really enjoy the service and talking to the owner.

Great pho and springrolls. Service and environment typical of a noodle house, but the food is stellar and pricing is perfect. A great stop if you are craving Pho.

This restaurant must have changed owners or rebranded recently. It is now called Pho House of Noodle. Regardless of the name change, the Pho was good. I would opt for a Small or Large bowl. It is not a high-end Pho shop. Do not expect a five star dining experience, but do expect great food. Their menu offers sever non-Pho... More

I've been to a zillion Vietnamese restaurants and admittedly order the same feast each time. A huge bowl of PHO soup (differing meats tho, usually beef), the cold spring rolls in white rice paper with shrimp/pork and peanut sauce, the fried spring rolls with fish sauce and the iced vietnamese coffee with condensed milk...did so here too. A standard place,... More
