Taste of Pho is very good and there are a lot of herb, mint and long coriander with very competitively reasonable price in Waikiki area. The location of this restaurant might be hard for the first visitors to be found. The restaurant is next to Ena Road Laundry behind the 7-Eleven near Ena road on Kalakaua Ave. Please Don't Miss...

Friendly atmosphere with a great Vietnamese food. Tucked into the more residential corner of Waikiki on the ewa end. It's cozy with no frills, just good eats. Tip: call ahead and order some bun or bahn mi sandwiches for the perfect meal on the beach

Visited this restaurant because it was close to our hotel. It is popular with the locals. The food was great, the pho broth was clean and taste, spring/eggs rolls were good as well. The restaurant could use renovation. Restrooms were not very clean. Service was prompt and friendly. Great prices compared to restaurants for tourist.

Tried 2 dishes from the front page (with photos) of the menu. Shrimp and squid with lemon grass on rice (just under $10) Rating: 8/10 - Tasty! Turmeric and lemongrass gave the seafood great flavour. - Prawns and squids cooked just right (not over-cooked) Deep-fried spring rolls and grilled thin pork sirloin slices on vermicelli (just under $10.00) Rating: 8/10...

This is a no frills basic pho joint. Decor is terrible, service is more than fair. A quick authentic pho on the run.

My friend and I had lunch here cause it's near her workplace. I'm just visiting for a few days and this is also walking distance to her apartment. The food was just ok. I loved the beef combination noodle soup. The beef was thinly sliced and tender, the spring rolls and summer rolls are good too.

The food is fine, but the environment is a little gross. The bathroom needs to be completely shut down an renovated. There are two bathroom stalls, but one is currently being used as a mop closet. The sink is the grimiest I have ever seen and I am not exaggerating.

Stopped by for a bowl of pho today. Initial taste was quite bland and unimpressive. Also ordered springrolls, summer rolls, and shrimp and squid stir-fried with lemongrass take out for my family. We'll see if the rest of the food will be better or not. Be prepared to wait as the orders can take forever to prepare.
