We were thrilled to see this reopen as Wild Ginger and to read the positive review in the local paper, since we love us a hot, steaming bowl of pho on a chilly day! We dashed right over after reading the review, and were not disappointed. The restaurant is clean, tidy, and pleasant, and the staff is friendly and attentive. We had the steamed pork/shrimp dumplings as an app (rich and very good with a nice dipping sauce) and then each had a "small" bowl of the B1 (medium rare beef) pho. The soup arrived steaming hot, with a side plate piled with bean sprouts, basil, and fresh lime. (No cilantro, but the soup had some.) We had recently spent a few months on the northwest coast and Vancouver, which has great Asian restaurants, and we thought this was about as good as any we'd had there. The broth was rich and flavorful, but not overly fatty; you could taste the star anise and other flavors but they were balanced. The small portion was plenty for us, especially with the shared appetizer. We each had a glass of French pinot noir with the meal, which was decent and reasonably priced. Looks like this will be a regular part of our restaurant rotation!
