Everyone had something different and huge plates of wonderful Vietnamese food. Fresh veggies and bean curd for me as a veggie but heaps of meat and fish dishes as well. Friendly hosts and servers and very fast!

Hidden in a corner of the main market street is this very decent and affordable Vietnamese restaurant.. No frills but their pho is great! The broth is slightly spicy but very appetizing. Had the pho, spring rolls and the grilled pork... All for 33 dollars. Recommend!

We walked over from the Int'l arts museum (1025 Market), and of course lots of homeless on 6th ave. First thing we noticed, full of young people, so should be good. The portions are generous, the prices are low, and the most important thing - my friends approved my choice. The food was really good. Of course not at all a fancy place, not for foodies, but for a casual inexpensive meal served its purpose.

Food was really good, I would especially recommend the imperial rolls!! My partner and I also shared the beef with bamboo and mushrooms and the spicy beef noodle soup. Both were delicious with lots of crunchy vegetables, and portions were big enough that we couldn't finish it all!!

Upon the recommendation of a SF native, we ate lunch here (mostly because it was across the street from Golden Gate Theater). What a treasure! The Imperial Rolls alone are worth the trip, even without a ticket to the theater. When we arrived at noon, there was one table left. This place is for the person who loves Anthony Bourdain type dives...AKA hidden gems!
