The lunch menu options are always a good call. Fair price and quick service. Tasty soups. It can get busy over lunch

I have been in Europe for over a year and haven't found a pho place that has grabbed my attention. Cho Lon is by far the best pho place I have tried in Europe. I have only tried places in Paris and Prague. The meat and broth were good. The noodles weren't as thick as Paris and Prague (a plus... More

This restaurant was one of our very favorite places in Geneva. We have in the past brought friends to the restaurant who formerly lived in Vietnam or Cambodia, and they agreed the dishes could be compared to some of the better meals they had there. For various reasons, we had not managed to get there for several months and discovered... More

This is a Vietnamese restaurant, so have the typical Vietnamese dishes! Phô is great, and so is the spicy version of it ("Imperial"). It's not a fancy place, but very good and solid for the typical dishes.

The pho was okay. San Francisco and Geneva have very comparable prices for food so I was shocked to see a bowl of noodle soup priced at $26! In SF prices range from $9-15. It's broth with noodles and meat! The flavor of the broth was okay but nothing to write home about, (didn't taste like 24 hr beef stock... More

Came here for dinner and had the prawns. It was absolutely delicious and I would come back just for this. The restaurant itself had a nice welcoming feel as you enter and the decor was lovely Vietnamese style - simple and not over the top. We were early for dinner and were the first ones there, but later the restaurant... More

In my opinion, best Vietnamese food in Geneva. Great for lunch or dinner. They've recently redone the interior and it's nicer than before. Summer rolls are great! The staff are friendly, the portion size is good, and usually the service is timely.

Went with friends: food ok but nothing exceptional (would have liked more vegetables with the vermicelles), waiters were nice but the 4 plates arrives with 10 minutes of delay from one another. Also a bit too expensive for what it offered.

The restaurant is near the main train station and offers good Vietnamese/Asian food. However, the portion is very small and the price is quite high.

We had #s 71, 72 and 73 and several starters -- vermicelli with the grilled pork and nems were amazing. Haven't had this good Vietnamese food since I was in Hanoi last year.
