This place was crowed during lunch hour. Pretty good traditional Pho for reasonable price. Servie was slow. The Pho came out hot, which is a must. I seldom dine at Vietnam restaurant. When I go there, I just order Pho and that's it.

I've been coming to this place for pho for years. The phos are decently sized with large portions of meat. The egg rolls are great.

Went there with friends on a lunch break from work. We've ordered a mix of rise, noodle and Pho dishes. I went only for the Pho soup as it was looking delicious! I didn't regret my choice as it was one of the best soups...More

The majority of the waitstaff at this restaurant do not speak English: that is a positive sign of the restaurant's authenticity. The pho here tastes great, and arrives minutes after you order it. The spring rolls are also delicious. There is ample public parking in...More

Needed a bowl of hot soup, and, despite the 90 degree weather in LA, the pho here did the trick. I liked the broth, lots of lean chicken meat and the noodles. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for pho!

I've eaten at many Vietnamese restaurants. I would rate this as being a very excellent restaurant. Crispy roll had the authentic skin on it. Very tasty. Food came out quick.

There's plenty of Pho's around so go elsewhere. Service was exceptionally poor. The food is OK. Beef soup and noodle tasted average but passable. Street parking available. Bathrooms are OMG dirty. Try elsewhere first and when ALL pho's are exhausted, then go here.

Been here a few times but just barely got around to writing a review. Parking in the front (street) and in the back (structure). I ordered pho with the the brisket and tripe. The meat was very tender! However very stingy with the tripe. It...More

This place looks like a llittle hole in the wall, not very appealing at all. When we went inside, it was very croweded, so I assumed they must be doing something right. Well, the service was prompt and the food was delicious! I would definitely...More
