We have eaten tons of Vietnamese food over the years and this drab storefront pho shop does not measure up at all. You can do much better in the area at the same price.

As far as the Vietnamese beef soup goes, this is very average. Large bowl, lots of rice noodle, too little meat. I found one piece of tripe. A bit heavy on the aniseed seasoning in the broth. Decent price. Not worth a return visit, I'm afraid.

It is a fairly small pho outlet, but the food is great. The only drawback to it is that you can often wait a while to get seated.
You may well be served by a person who speaks little english, but the menus are translated, and you will have no problem ordering tasty bowls off Pho and delicious Bun--Vietnamese noodle salad

An inexpensive and terrific lunch. I have had their multi course beef menu for dinnner, and it was delicious as well

I absolutely loved their number 1 soup when I lived out there. Good food at a great price. Plus you're right next to a 99 Ranch Market if you get any ideas from the cuisine. And I have to disagree with one of the other reviewers. The Pho place on Reseda doesn't even come close.
