I guess Simi Valley has its "Geno's vs. Pat's" debate about Vietnamese Restaurants (if you are not familiar with "Geno's vs. Pat's" then Google it). I've eaten at both several times and for me, Pho So 1 wins out by a large margin. The selection is larger, food is tastier with more complexity in ingredients and flavor. You will also... More

We have been here several times in the past few months and have always enjoyed the food. If you want a light, fresh, healthy meal that will not make you feel like you just ate a brick, this is your place. True authentic Vietnamese food that is the best in Simi Valley. Best I have ever had period... We will... More

I have tried many Vietnamese restaurants in Thousand Oaks, West Lake Village, Camarillo, and Similar Valley and this one is the closest to authentic egg rolls. They use the traditional Vietnamese rice paper, not the thick Chinese one. It takes a lot of labor to do this type of egg rolls and even the Vietnamese have given up doing egg... More
