As a juror in a five-day trial at the Harbor Justice Center (on Jamboree at Campus in Newport Beach), I decided to eat lunch at five nearby cafes/fast food joints that were within walking distance (half-mile) from the Justice Center. As a rule, I avoid fast food joints and chain-owned cafes, except in an emergency. My criterion for judging these... More

We have been going to this modern Vietnamese eatery in Irvine for the past 3+ years and so far it has delivered consistently. The recent visit was no different... Shrimp Sugarcane rolls are our favorite.. Crunchy, Fresh and very satisfying. Pho is not exactly authentic but very tasty and flavorful... Shaken beef is AMAZING and also one of our favorites......

Great happy hour, lots of regulars/locals, friendly staff. Love the mini pho - chicken or beef. Beef skewers are delicious.

This place is hard to find and harder to park. You really have to park in the structure behind it, but there is no charge for the parking. I eat primarily vegan and this place is ideal for me. They make delicious pho and have one that is totally vegan. I have been told the other ones are also good.... More

Discovered this restaurant by accident and absolutely love it. My partner and I had a great time the two times we have been there. At a reasonable price, the special pho is excellent with a tasty broth and rivals any other that I've had since the UK. The tuna ahi rolls were also very tasty. The staff are extremely kind... More

This was outstanding. The speed of service and quality was second to none. Great place to find well prepared authentic Vietnamese food. All of the staff were friendly and attentive

We ate at Phans 55 with a few friends in early September I was disappointed with the food. I thought it would be more flavorful. I chose this restaurant based on other reviews. I would not recommend this particular restaurant

Nothing good to say. Very noisy. apathetic staff. Pretends to be Asian fusion but is nothing more than an untrained fast food kitchen staff preparing Panda Express quality food at fine dining prices. STAY AWAY

The food is fair--one of my favorites, the Vietnamese crepe was prepared to poorly that it was falling apart. The fish was well prepared, the summer rolls were only so-so. I have prepared better ones myself. The prices are high and the service was mediocre. We will not be returning! Maybe it was because it was Sunday night and it... More

I hesitated to review it because I want to be able to get in whenever I wqnt. I finally decided that having it over run was better than losing it. It is in a sort of out of the way place, inside a huge apartment complex. Use your navigation system to find it. The food is heavenly, almost as good... More
