Great spot, 2 blocks from Matchbox Theater. Great Vietnamese spring rolls and egg rolls. Everything is very fresh. Keep up the good work.

I spent some time in Vietnam earlier this year and have been addicted to Pho ever since I returned home. I have been to Pho places all over the country and in Vietnam and this is one of my favorites.

The food is very good. The service is outstanding. Portion sizes are generous. Lots to choose from on the menu...almost too much. Secured parking behind the building and across the street. Great value!

Great tasting food, busy for late Friday. Had to switch tables due to very cold air from A/C unit above table. Careful about bill: gratuity included already in initial Bill but when they brought out the final one, didn't show that. People need to know this

Centrally located, convenient and nice atmosphere. Service is very friendly, parking might be difficult, especially in the evening, but the food is all worthy.

Not just One Hair, but a BUNDLE of hair was found and picked up with chopsticks, in my Pad Thai with Tofu. This was shown to the waitress who apologized and quickly cleared the plate. The Manager came over, without a word, and gave me the bill for the hot tea I was drinking ..... When in amazement he still... More

Stopped by for a late night pick-up order-this place is open until 3 am on weekdays! Everything was ready and hot. The chicken pad thai was very tasty! Huge portions.

My friend has been wanting to take me here for years. I see why, the food was amazing at a great price. I ordered the Mongolian Beef with shrimp spring rolls. The portions were large and soooo good! Will definitely be back.
