Right next to UoMn campus where he light rail transit runs right through. Spacious seating. Friendly staff. Mostly campus students. Hence affordable meals. Beef phó broth was delicious. Meat was thinly sliced & tender.

I have not found a better Vietnamese restaurant in the Twin Cities and I have tried many. I love their pho, eggrolls and spicy chicken.

Considered as an authentic Vietnamese food by people in U, this restaurant offers good food and service. We had Vegetable spring rolls and vegetable LoMein. The portions were more than adequate. The peanut sauce is quite tasty. The Fortune Cookies are good fun !
